wait guys, before you all judge lem on this part above ... that is leftover footage. the adidas promo part was 90% tour footage. the part before was a shop video part nobody saw here until it came out as rough footage 2 years later.

he's not generic, . he WILL make an impact on skateboarding, but you have to wait for that 4-5 years. he needs that time

well, do you have a link to any good footage of him?  he's obviously extremely talented, but i wasn't feeling that video.

as for the infallibility of girl fam's flow/am selection...uh, jereme rogers?  they might be able to pick'em for the most part, but every once in a while a kook will slip through

i dont know why folks here are so into lem vanilla or whatever. everyone's always complaining about mikemo and prod "robot" styles but this guy gets the free pass? i think it may have something to do with adidas
I think people dropped the Mikemo hate after FF dropped, and saying Paul is boring is just an excuse to find something wrong with a prodigy.
For the record, I like all three.


lem is boring as is mike mo.   mike mo fully flared part reinforced the fact that his skating is boring.......he had one creative/unexpected trick and they used it for his last one......id rather just skip to pops part and then rewind about twenty seconds than sit through all those double set nollie heels...same thing with malto.....zzzzz
For mike mo, his fakie switch front crook fakie 360 flip out didn't get you atleast a little bit? Like the way he catches it 270 and kinda rips it around the rest of the way? I don't think I;ve ever seen it done before either? I mean, never been done, executed well, but not in a robotic way, what could be to hate? Its one of my favorite tricks in the video. He;s got other good ones too. Plenty of 'em.
Are you a kook? If you would say this, the answer is “YES”
I quit skating for a time due to piling out

shit man I actually did think of that trick you pointed out earlier after making the post.......it had slipped my mind because I only sat through his sleep inducing part once or twice

I like how you added the part about catching it 270 and ripping it or whatever as an example of how it wasn't robotic.....veeeeeery persuasive.


wheee!

Mike-Mo is boring? Boring?

Mike-Mo is going to be one of the best if not the best skater of his generation. Barring some kind of career ending injury or drug addiction.

I know it's a little cheesy, but the guy does 720 double flips. That's not normal... And is sure as fuck isn't "boring".

i actually am kinda feeling mikemo, he's not one of my favorites but he kindof has his own bag of tricks, i normally do skip his lakai part but he had some really good ledge tricks, you know the ones im talking about. the rest of it was just every nollie trick down different sets. i just brought him up seeing as EVERYONE was hating on this dude about his robotic style, just as they do with prod

th elem dude is good i guess, i just am not feeling him; if he had unique tricks or a unique style it would be different, but he's lacking both. the only thing unique about him is that he's on adidas and thats why a lot of you are jocking him so hard

He's the only skater I can think of that actually has worse style now than when he was a little kid.

Who do you guys like?  Every good young skater out now you guys dont like.  Please name one person you like thats not on Deluxe.  Lem is freakin unreal.  Mike-Mo is only 17 for god sakes.  What will he be like at age 25.  I mean seriously.

Damn all this speculation, It could be Doug Brown.  He'd go to the demo and have to run to the car to get all his pads...definately Doug Brown on Chocolate
Anyone else notice that Tony Parker is the Gino of basketball?

Fakie Switch Front Crook? I think you're making up tricks there...

earlier in this thread when everyone was talking about Javier, I at first thought they were referring to Nunez.
I mean, he skates the Supreme bowl, no?
His section in the Shut promo was on point....

typical nollie feebs

from what ive seen, lem can do almost all the flip tricks regular and switch, do all the shuvit tricks regular and switch, do almost all the slides/grinds regular and switch. he also appears to be able to do most flips/shuvits into his grinds and slides, and then has the ability to take his flat tricks over gaps and stairs.

now that to me sounds like hes got his shit down.

how can you have a unique trick if you can already do them all.

you just said he could do tricks; what kind of fucking 12 year old explanation is that?

"im better because i can ollie a deck, ollie two decks, ollie a 4 stair, kickflip and 180 a stair..."

i dont give a fuck really, im not into him, i never said he wasnt good.

but seriously the more in-depth you guys get about him, the more boring you are seriously making him sound.

its not a fuckin math problem, i just dont like watching him
