Thanks guys! Means a lot. Stoked it got you hyped planman.

Yeah the clip is repetitive no doubt. It's not meant to be a video part, it's really just a tape for which I just threw all my recent shit in States on the timeline, I didn't put any thought into trying to build anything coherent. A lot of those clips are just me skating naturally not even thinking about filming, some of them are first try on the fly in between other people's takes. It was filmed with different folks for different projects too, so in order to content them all individually I repeated my strongest go to's as we always only had short windows of time to film. But as a result my favorite classic tricks I actually do on the daily, nollie flips, ledge stuff etc. barely ever get filmed. I don't even have a filmer where I live, so I really only get to film whilst on trips and sometimes that's tricky working your way around other people who sometimes are actually paid to skate.

Your crazy-ass style is entertaining, would definitely watch what you put out!

Makes a lot more sense now you say it, either-way dude the skateboarding is what counts and it was fun to watch so just keep doing it!

Any shoes with similar flick to the Vans Crockett 2s?

State Madisons are great, my canvas pair has held up so fucking well. Honestly though I wish it was a bit chunkier around the collar ala Rowley's first shoe. Anyway, they are basically a bulletproof vans era with a better insole and tonnes of grip. Will be interested to see how much life you get out of them

I already skated one pair a while back (the first ever States I got, actually) and it lasted me four months, marking the first time a skate shoe would last me this long since the bulky shoes era. I actually filmed a whole sponsor me tape for State just in that one pair, and eventually started getting more shoes. I'm super hyped on them, they are super practical and have a classic skate shoe look.

Here's my clip in case you're interested in seeing the same pair of shoe degrade over time. They're completely thrashed at the end. The video is set to private and some of the footage has yet to come out but fuck it, it's the fucking shoe thread.

fuck man, always a treat to see your footy. you're honestly hyping me to skate faster/ not be a possey in my old age. Great shit and you make them states look really good!!!

thanks for the kind words guys. I'm a huge poosey actually. I actively try to cover that up but deep inside I know that every time I put that foot down I'm losing crumbs of credibility.

Thanks man. Yeah nollie impossible over the front foot, learned that one maybe six years prior to learning them regular, and nollie flips, because I make no sense. But I do like surprising and confusing shit. Stoked you were into it.

^Not sure if that works...

As someone who is quite anti-Nike or any sports brands being in skateboarding, it was really hard for me to pay hard earned cash for a pair of Nikes, but they were on for $40 at Winners so I decided I'd give em' a try to see if there was any meat to the 'superior quality' argument. Probably gonna rip the swoosh off. Will report back...

Etnies sent me the Joslin pro shoe and he signed the box.

The shoe seems pretty durable from holding them and trying them on. But pretty stiff, definitely needs to be broken in.

Currently on my fifth pair of NB#

First were the 522 v1 and the logans. Both were awesome but i preferred the 533 more, the logans were good too but not as great. Im on my second pair of 533 now and have another one of the v2s and i just got the allstons yesterday on sale for $30
