i always liked the dude. he rips. back when he was on bluetown skateboards in chicago i saw him do a few demos around and he was super nice. always supported his skating after that. stoked he had a good run and did different shit.

yeah I was thinking a Rusczyk megamix with that Sloppy Seconds part, some Horseshoes and Handgrenades footage, and all of that other stuff local stuff would be amazing.

I have his first board in a corner skated to the point that amatuer is gone. I fucking heart his art bars and tl parts, but I need ca since it's his "last". I didn't read this thread and it's at 2 pages so anyone who typed shit can fuck off. The last good Foundation am to pro IMO.

Slap loves nobodies, this dude doesn't have one memorable video part, or trick in a magazine. he was mediocre at best.

No comply flip up a 6 is fucking insane

Rusczyk is one of those guys who really got me hyped on skating. He always skated to great songs and had a really unique style and trick selection. I was pretty much over Foundation after Rusczyk and Fowler left. What is it they say on art bars? Mikey the funky Mike! What!

Rusczyk was a shinning light in all those foundation videos. He is awesome! Hope to see some more footy some day.

haha yeah I think that was the point.  It seemed like he always made a conscious choice not to have an "ender"......The way his part ends in art bars was super cool,  a few random tricks dispersed and then it ends with some line at 3rd and army


wheee!

him being pro wasn't really serious, he had that retirement video sometime after he turned pro. he's got a unique style, and his parts are enjoyable. quit hatin'

Bump!

Mike is the epitome of skateboarding. One of the most artistic people I have ever encountered in my life, on and off the board. Sounds like he's still crushing it. LARGEups...

I've always loved this dude and thought he was way too underrated. Somebody give him a medal.
