usually his graphic series boards are 7.75 and his one offs are 8.
used to be that way.

Damn that brings back the cruel cruel memories of Attica.

Nah you've opened up a floodgate of memories now.

I remember it like yesterday. I came back from 'Nam only to discover my one true love in bed with the milkman. She said she thought I was dead and she needed love just like anyone else but all I saw was a white flash and next thing you know I'm standing in a room covered in blood. I was on the run for seven days before they caught me covered in blood and filth and cowering in a ditch. I was put before a strict and cruel judge. I was sentenced to life in Attica. My first day in the showers I felt a large hairy hand cover my mouth, press me up against the wall and whisper in my ear "can you take all nine?"....... After a month and a half in the infirmary I could walk again and the injuries were healed, but some scars never heal.

And there you've opened up that pandora's box of memories all over again.

I think early 90's ledge skating still has a lot to offer. Imagine if the tricks Guy did on the World ledge in Virtual Reality were done down handrails?

Already then he did one trick on a handrail which has only been done on ledges, the switch noseslide flip out.

Yeah. I was also thinking about the Nollie to Backside Tailslide Kickflip out in the FTC video.

But even Henry Sanchez's tricks in Virtual. Fakie 5-0 to noseslide, Fakie Flip to Fakie tailslide, Frontside Half Cab Flip to Frontside Noseslide. Imagine someone doing those proper down a rail?

i like mariano as much as the next guy, but i dont think he even took this trick seriously.  i happen to think people only like this because its mariano and not because of the trick.  in fact if it was anyone else doing it, say, angel rameriz or ronson lambert, people would be saying how stupid this trick is.

Yep that's exactly why I like the trick. But because Guy Mariano did it he brings something to that trick that no one else ever could.

Sure it looks cool, but is the trick itself really impressive?  I'm stoked on it, but there's just something weird about it.

that trick fucking sucks... its in the same boat as "crook/backlip" its just a ugly looking trick..

but guy is guy and he is sick. but once again he did step up the ante by doing it on a rail , but its still a ugly trick

this ain't bastien and you ain't making a dime of sense. "but guy is sick". don't rationalize homey.

backlipshove whatever criticized the trick and immediately people started to talk shit about him. Im not saying that I agree with him, but is he stupid because he says what he thinks and not what everyone wants to hear?

because he's wrong goof.

besides 'go extra fast and keep speed', orthodox combination grind theory has always gone something like 'keep the point of pressure the same', i.e. avoid shifting your weight entirely to the other side of the board (5-0 to nosegrind, crooked to lip, tailslide to noseslide, etc.). this applies to manuals too, attn joey brezinski and followers.

the skaters who were doing new in the 90's are still doing new. this current generation is just doing the old tricks bigger.  thats all just bigger and maybe going faster..but thats natural. progression trickwise however is still only being pushed by a few. thats why you have guys over 30 still pro cause the new young pros arent innovative enough to push them out of the market like the kostons and marianos did to the vallely's and tom knoxs of the early 90's late 80's.

Kids like sheckler
Pros like mariano

figure it out...
what i want when i want with who i want how i want.

Tom Knoxes? There was only one and he is still pretty sick as a non/semi-pro. I always wanted that Minor Threat board.
