Kenny Anderson appreciation
« on: November 12, 2009, 12:51:22 AM »
Kenny Anderson rips. I'm looking forward to his part in the new chocolate video a lot. I don't think this guy gets enough respect. Dude seems to float on his skateboard and always has perfect control. appreciate on.

I quit skating for a time due to piling out

Kenny is the definition of super-clean skating. his back180 ollies are art. i've never seen a clip from him that didn't engage me. for real.

kenny is sick! He got the smoothest style and the best back tails. Cant wait for his chocolate part!
He just needs to get the fuck of adio and back to converse.

one of the all time greats! if you look back into his old planet earth parts from the mid 90's, you can just see how much control and finesse he had early on...

When his first ad for Chocolate came out I was in a store looking at magazines and when I saw his ad I yelled out "Fuck yeah". I got some weird looks from people in the store for that.

Possibly THE smoothest street skater out there. love what he does. and, nominee for The Nicest Guy Ever award, too. Talked to him for about an hour at the black box trade show, hadn't seen him in a couple years. just rad. word up, kenny a! i didn't watch the clips yet but is the line from an early transworld video where he back noseblunts a ledge in a line up in there? that's my first memory of seeing him. clean since day one.

i've met Kenny a bunch of times, first when he was younger on some planet earth/ rythum tour that came through new orleans.
He's always been the nicest guy ever, to the point where even i he wasn't as amazing as he was he would probably stillbe pro.

Schaefer and Clemins from The Spot call him The Perfect Man.

kenny is one of the smoothest skaters ever for sure...  the only reason he doesnt get that much recognition is because he hasnt had a full length video part since One Step Beyond which came out about 8 years ago.

I feel like part of it has to do with the fact that he is a really subtle skater. He's gonna be the guy who does a perfect backside tailslide across the entire ledge instead of some 2 foot long triple grind combo circus shit. He does some really technical stuff, but it always is super clean and flows so well, and he makes it look so  easy that it seems like a lot of it goes unnoticed.

the first footage i ever saw from him was from yeah right in the chocolate montage. easily had the best shit in there. amazing manny and ledge skills, looks to easy for him. couldn't believe most of it was switch, too.

Kenny's BS noseblunt on the quarter pipe at the berrics was tight. One of the best styles out there.
