Sean Malto instantly popped up in my head.

Its a combination of him looking 15 when he is in his early 20's and his bag of tricks, I somewhat understand what makes him popular though.

Shit... he's not really a pro and I'm not sure if people love him or not but...
Curren Caples... there's better kids his age. But seriously, who names their fuckin' kid Curren. Honestly.
Also, he looks like straight-up tans in a booth.

I am not going to say who you can like and who you can't, but come on. Not liking him is whatever, but because his name is Curren and because he's too tanned for you? Fuck off.
He's not "too tanned" for me. Let me rephrase that entire part. He's a Cali surfer-style prodigy Woodward kid to me. And Curren is an odd name. I don't dislike him for it, I just think his parents went out there a little. So, technically, I was talking about his parents.

Curren's dad is a surfer. And theres some surf dude named Tom Curren or Curran. I think that might have something to do with the naming. Could be wrong though.

Probably does have come kind of correlation. I just can't get into that kind of style. I suppose I don't hate him for it. It's just not my cup of tea. I'll admit, I kind did come off as a douche, there.

The first time I saw Curren Caples' name and picture, I was like "whoa, someone named their kid after Tom Curren?"

There are kids named Koston running around too. That's taking fandom to a disturbing new level.

I know! Isn't it odd?! I thought I was the only one that noticed that.

Hahahahahaha! Seriously?! Well I hope they're at least skating around, too, not just running around ;)

Sean Malto - I just don't see it
Theotis Beasly - He's super nice but I just can't stand his style
David Gravette - He does some sick shit but I can't watch more than a minute of him

Yep. In some interview, they asked Koston what he thought about people naming their kids "Koston" and he said "yeah, there's a few out there". He wasn't bummed, he was like "hey, it's a strong name".

Chris Cole.
I don't hate him but when I watch him he puts me to sleep.
It's like watching someone play THPS, entertaining for awhile but get's boring really quick.

Antwuan Dixon
Kenny Anderson
Probably some others too.
I dont recall ever putting on anything Southpole in my life.

No one cares about these uk guys but Lucian is the best english skater to come up in the last few years and you're dizzy if you aren't feeling him.



Sean Malto (some floppy bieber headed mums favorite)

Mike Taylor (was better with cornrows and xxl t's)

Eric Koston (just a jump-in-front-of-the-berrics-camera mongo pushing old man)

vincent alvarez

sierra fellers (yawn)

cory kennedy



would of said adrian lopez but no one cares.  any kid putting out video parts during puberty/are smaller than 5ft

He's proud of his last name. That's good. It shows pride and character. It's cool that he's not all bummed and annoyed haha.

lenny rivas, liked his part in tha kayo video but he sounds like a retard, he annoys me
busenitz is sick, but i dont get all the fuss and bum-boy status about him
wasnt liking garett hill when i first saw his part in new blood, but as his career has gone on ive loved his footage.

Wait... what?! come on.

I'm not sure if people "love him" or just "like him" but Matt Pailes has always been pretty terrible in my eyes.

No, its just an opinion.   Lucian has just got something a bit different, Mark baines has been around for time, so you can't really throw him in there...


Why wouldn't Lucian be up there in your opinion then?  You seen much footage from him?

no Lucian is definitley UP THERE in my opinion, cos yeah i have seen footage of him, i just dont think hes "the best", if you get me.
sure Baines may have been round for a while but i think he deserves a bit more recognition, i was so stoked when i heard lucian got on element (iirc), cos he was going places, but to me there are others who stand out more.
like jensen, brady, kohran gayle etc (he's a wizard)

Yeah but with Palace, Altamont, Shake Junt, DVS colorway, This time tomorrow and his mag minute - i feel like he has real momentum and feels like he's properly come up.

Jensen and brady have both done huge things, esp by uk standards but so established that i don't count them as recent come ups.

Koston - i usually only watch his parts once, yes i know he's amazing but i just can't get into watching his parts?
Appleyard - I know he is technically great at skating, just can't even watch his parts, bores me
Leo Romero - maybe due to the overhype, i just cant be bothered
Austin Stephens - still waiting to be dazzled
Brent Atchley - fake style!
Lizard King - dont get the point of this guy
Antwuan Dixon - his "effortless style" with the droopy arms, just makes him look like he's made out of marmalade to me

there's heaps more, thats just the tip of the iceturd
