Carroll was a huge inspiration to me and my skating. I realized i could never skate like him... but he set the bar for inner city skateboarding with his EMB and downtown Frisco stuff. That carried with me for ever.

when questionable came out, everyone around me dyed their hair blonde, wore striped collared short sleeves and got waist 58 dickies to cut off. i think for a good year or so, everyone around me wanted to be carroll at emb

favorite skater of all times hands down, no contest. first video i ever saw was modus operandi and that shit blew my adolescent mind.

i met him once at back to the berg. got no pic or anything, but i just saw him and at first i was like 'nah, i'll leave him alone' but i just couldn't help myself haha. i walked up to him and shook his hand and gave him a bro hug type thing and i said 'you are the reason i started skating' and he said something along the lines of 'no i'm not dude...' and i replied 'yeah yeah yeah i know it's whatever but you're the fuckin man' and i walked away with a huge fuckin smile on my face. in retrospect i should have gotten a photo but he was mid conversation with someone so i just did my thing and dipped. sick encounter tho, i was hyped for a week hahah

Sounds like a pretty cool moment though. I wouldn't expect him to say anything less.
Are you a kook? If you would say this, the answer is “YES”
I quit skating for a time due to piling out

Appreciating Mike Carroll goes without saying, has anyone ever heard anyone seriously say "Yeah, that Mike Carroll, never did like the way he rode the skateboard." ?

Used to have a friend who hated on Carroll. Long story short we aren't friends anymore.

That footage is sick.  I was so stoked when I was 17 and went to SF for the first time.  EMB was a total bust by then but I skated it anyway.  I noticed the plain clothes cops and went to Carls Jr to try to play it off like I was just getting some food. 

Stoked on this thread!

reynolds does em big, penny does em good, but mike carroll has THE sickest frontside flip.

Rewatched Goldfish earlier today just for that fs flip over the bench in the union square line.

Carroll's got the best frontside flips - yes, better than reynolds imo.

I've always felt the same way.
