this kid might have the best style i have ever seen. The kickflip back lip and smith hardflip were perfection.

I've known this kid for a few years now and I'm damn hyped he got hooked up, congrats boy.

Fuck yeah! Chocolate next hopefully...

last time i talked to him he was living with C.Roberts so it's bound to be in the works.

Dope!  This kid is the shit and deserves a proper hook up.  I can't wait to see some new coverage.

i feel like i really must be missing something here.  because he is one of those kids who's sprung up lately who always try to keep their arms below their shoulders.  am i really the only one who notices this?  his style seems really, really forced because he's always concentrating on keeping his arms down; it's just not natural.  i noticed it in those berrics vids and still notice it.  and sure, he's another california tech kid who's not too sketchy, but who cares?  there are thousands of these kids.  meanwhile, dudes like jimmy lannon are still being slept on by companies by lakai; he's been on the flow program for years, has put in the work, and still is with no recognition like this.

sorry.  perhaps i'm ranting.  maybe it's that i'm so desensitized by the great amount of insanely tech skating recently that kids like this just don't do it for me.

Lakai, preparing for the future; Daniel Espinoza is pretty good.

hell yeah, Daniel comin up!
would you rather hear "woo" from the omar salazar pack? i wouldn't. their "yeahs" are genuine, and cool. "yeah" has been the battle cry of skaters for as long as i can remember.

how do you know what he is concentrating on? doesn't that happen inside your head?

I liked the 5-0 360 flip out and the smith hard flip.
those are both go-to fingerboard tricks

Nice.

As far as the whole "putting in work" thing. That's not really how it works. Talent and marketability are what matters. With an am, age also matters. Jimmy Lannon is pretty old, and is not likely to turn into the next Koston. Younger kids have the potential to do that, and because of that potential, they'll get the am spot 9/10 over the guy who has put in work.
Fuck, I've "put in work" skating, but I shouldn't be am. Talent and marketability are what matters, not how much time you spend on the board, how long you have been skating, or even how much you love skating.
Are you a kook? If you would say this, the answer is “YES”
I quit skating for a time due to piling out

Sorry for the double post, just saw the video. It's pretty decent, and I trust the scouting abilities of the crailtap dudes. Also, the way they show the chocolate emblem on the top of the board before he grips it makes me think his welcome to chocolate video will probably be in like a week.
