Frank Gerwer Appreciation
« on: October 08, 2007, 06:52:33 PM »
i was flipping through some random shit on youtube and frank gerwer pped up. i started watching a bunch of his and parts, and re realized how fucking gnarly he is. im going to have to say if gerwer never makes it to a top 10 greatest skaters of all time he is undoubtedly 11th.




wheels of fortune.

If you saw him live at a demo you would not think this.

I've seen him and skated with him live during a demo, and I don't think like you'd think I'd think.

When he came to the Shelter in Albany he sucked the shit big time.  Landed absolutely nothing, yet he skated the whole time.  Maybe he's got a better showing on a full tranny concrete park.

He's dope, skating could use more gerwers and less New era/nike dunk/ allover printing shirt wearing pretty boys.

i've seen him around SF a bunch and he kills it.  he's also a pretty cool/funny/down to earth guy most of the time and pretty fun to skate with, probably the most affable guy on anti-hero

def enjoyed his cash money vagrant section; very enjoyable. however, now lets be honest fellas, his personality has done way more for his career than his skills. lets be honest now....

Gerwer is too ill. He's an underground ripper the kids who buy all the all over print t-shirts can't appreciate.

he was probably having a bad day, but it was also the last leg of the tour. he was trying backside nosegrinds and backlips on ledges and not really getting close, dan pensyl and andrew allen owned that day

His ender in Cash Money Vagrant is so sick. I guess no one has ever bombed that hill except for him. Not to mention he did it with a cig in his mouth. Gerwer is one of my all time favorites
