2 Pontus threads in one day?

I can never find his part from Progession #1...I have it on VHS but no way to rip it.  Paul McElroy's part in it is on youtube, but I can't find Pontus.

I have no clue as well, one of the stranger skate pictures I've seen for sure. Looks like he's doing anollie  shifty off the little makeshift ramp on the left, over the bike and touching his hand on the wall in the progress, maybe his nose as well.

like you say: fucking rad either way.

I think it's a wallride nollie out, pretty sure the footage is in Strongest of the Strange somewhere. Yeah, the photo is fucking sick though.

edit:

heres another sick photo

He's got a new part in the Carhartt vid Spektra.

Here's a link:

http://www.skatevideosite.com/skatevideos/carhartt-spektra

He's nearer the end of the vid. Scott Bourne is also in it which is nice.

Strongest of the Strange is one of the best videos ever, always good to see Pontus footage.

He belongs near the top of the greatest pro skater names list, along with booze-n-tits. Gotta give it to TNT for the initials too.

he had a really sick interview in february's kingpin mag,if I had a scanner I would post that shit but I do not.
but basically he's still ripping,just not going down the 'sponsored path' or whatever.
and I agree that he is one of the all time greats.

I bought a video on ebay called progression vm issue 1 hoping it would be this video.  Turns out it was just a flaming piece of shit in a bag.

yeah, pontus is a classic. good to see the new stuff. can't wait for the new vid. will it be another highly stylized piece ala Strongest of the strange, or will it be more of a typical skate thing?

all time greats??  come on guys.  i remember seeing this dude at 3 up 3 down in like 1998, during that period when he was kind of on osiris and would wear blue D3s and some retarded fresh tech fisherman's hat.  he skates up to the spot and i ask him where are some other good spots close to the mission, and he goes "duuuude i just got back from san diego."  i remember thinking "uhh yeah who gives a fuck dude."

Just read that he's getting his own colorway of the Emerica Tope!











Btw, that's the Skåne flag on the heel. (The county he's from) Not Swedens.

We did the Portland premiere of "In Search Of The Miraculous" as a benefit for a local skate spot.  It was great seeing it up on a big screen.   He was very approachable (internetwise) and is stoked on any DIY project.  Rad dude.  That Bryggeriet park looks amazing.
