pros that people love that you can't get into
« on: August 12, 2010, 08:11:58 PM »
for me...

ethan fowler (i know i'm gonna catch hate for that one). i just don't see what everyone is talking about with that dude

i never understood poppalardo's cult following, not when he was hiphopalardo and not now that he's doing the wood bench and ollie thing

pat duffy. his plan b parts were awesome, yes. but wasn't feelin his transworld part n what he's up to now. for me it's like the matrix, the second and third movies somehow made the first one worse after the fact.

Cory Kennedy (Another Berrics prodigy kid)
Mike Mo (Comes off as wicked arrogant to me. I dunno, maybe he isn't, what do I know)
Brandon Biebel (Dude's voice makes me wanna punt a baby, and uses the lamest anthem-style rap songs for his parts. He's just too jock-ish to me.)
Wade DesArmo (360 Flip catching with your front foot a yard in front of you looks kooky to me. But hey, to each his own. Just isn't my steeze.)

That's all I can think of for the moment. NOTE: I do NOT HATE these guys. There's just certain things about me that make me dislike them and not see why everyone loves them.

or maybe its because your fist has to first be purified in the waters of lake minnetonka before it can touch dylons.

off the top of my head.


Andrew Allen (Something about his style seems whack to me)
Damian Bravo (Same)
Karl Watson (Kinda boring)
Rodrigo TX (Really boring. Doesn't look natural)
Pretty much every girl skater (some exceptions)
Decenzo brothers (Mainly Scott)
Theotis Beasley (I don't get the hype)


im going to assume people love these dudes.....

Decenzos are the only ones I like a lot out of that list.
Karl Watson's a really down-to-earth dude and I don't mind his skating.
Rodrigo TX is overrated to me. Too many BS Crooks on loading dock lips.
Theotis is an educated black kid that rips and actually doesn't even like to swear I guess. Or maybe it was drink/smoke. Can't remember.
But I see where you're coming from.

I can understand that. Personally he's one of my original favorites and I think it has something to do with how he kind has this powerful control over his tricks, and the way he is sketchy and smooth at the same time. One of my all time favorite 360 flips too.

For me I wanna say I feel weird that I don't like Guru Khalsa's skating, but I just never really liked his footage, I'm sure it's amazing to see him skate in person though.

I agree with Khalsa, it's not that I dislike him, it's just that I never really feel the urge to watch his footage more than once or twice. Same thing applies to Rodrigo TX.

guru and silas. both amazing skaters, but i hated the songs they used in inhabitants; felt like i was being lulled to sleep. Since I don't watch their parts, I'm not too fond of their skating. stupid reason, but never underestimate the power of a song.

Stefan Janoski was the other one I was trying to think of earlier. I just think his 360 Flips look goofy and overrated. At least in that trick tip video. :-X Like definitely NOT "Best Tre EVER" material. There's definitely better. Cole, P-Rod, and Thomas have my favorite 3 Flips.  
 By the way, I'm ready for shit-talk from all angles for that one. I just never saw the hype about him.

Torey Pudwill (worst style ever)
I'm impressed by a lot of the stuff he's done, but the windmill thing makes me press fast-forward.

I respect Koston and am impressed with everything he has done but I can't stand watching a part of his. I'm thinking it's the switch mongo.

Nugget - I can't think of a legit reason. I just don't like watching footage of him.

I'm not gonna quote everyone, but definitely Guru in the top spot. That dude is the definition of bland, from his style to trick/spot selection to even his clothing and a fucking ponytail? C'mon, son...

Agree 100% with Justin Brock and Theotis. Nothing they do really stands out, but I'm not going to hate on them besides the fact that Justin went pro way too soon.

Brock paid his dues and he's been killing non stop.
Not you specifically, but Guru is an amazing skater and a super nice guy.

How is putting out one company video part and one homies video part considered "paying dues?" I can't remember a single trick he's ever done besides that ugly 360 flip down the jeremy wray triple set.

i can agree with the ethan fowler comments, never enjoyed any of the footage i've seen of his, and his shared part in prevent this tragedy was unbearable, the only part i skip in the whole video. any tom penny footage post canadian dress code and beanie pulled down to the eyes is pretty awful too. maybe the clothing is just too distracting for me, but other than for nostalgic reasons, i don't get why anyone would enjoy watching his newer stuff. his old shit is really good though.

This is an interesting thread

I don't like any guy on Deathwish except for Greco, EE and Slash
I don't see what's so absolutely awesome about Malto
I loved Trapasso in STJ, but after that he just seemed boring to me
And a lot more that I can't think of right now

The one thing I love about Malto, that dude has a ear to ear grin in just about every photo I've seen of him. Awesome he's having so much fun.

Just because he's only put out 2 parts doesn't mean he isn't good or hasn't been killing this whole time.
I don't think real would of turned him pro for no reason.
He's skating above an am level.
sure there are way better am's then him, but it doesn't mean he doesn't deserve it.

Malto is an a amazing skater with undeniable talent and skill why still having a great style.
Trapasso. If your talking about his thrasher part then all i can tell you is he wasn't really trying.
I think they filmed his part in 6 months or more, but it was kinda is mess around part since it was the thrasher video, but watch his tws part or new footage (switch flip downtown 15) and you can tell he's been doing amazing things while having some of the most style in the game in my opinion.
