Admire Or Retire?
« on: January 25, 2011, 01:18:40 AM »
With Supra putting legends on their payroll, are they are any pros out there that deserve checks even though they barely skate anymore?  (Judging from the amount of footage, photos, or ads the produce)  Which pros deserve to live off their name? if any?

How about since this dude doesn't exist anymore, you post names of an older pro skater, the next person says whether they should be admired or retire.
Mark Gonzales- Admire
Jason Lee- retire


 Darren Naverette- admire or retire?

Retire, he does some really good stuff I just can't stand his style.

I know he retired (or tried to) but how about Heath?

retire- anyone that makes a living only skates vert ramps, not even parks but those pros out there all padded up going back and forth all day like it's 1985 still. Go buy a fucking snowboard already.

admire-gonz, cards, natas, daewon/mullen

You speak from theory, not experience. You can't even drop in on vert. Stay out of it.

You want to skate right? How about Venice park or San Pedro? Both have vert.

Of course. You can only skate ledge spots.

Prove it. skate a man's spot for once instead of foot high ledges, 5 stair rails, and 3 foot minis

It would be admirable if you both would retire from arguing.

No but seriously you guys should get together for a weekend and document it.

Saturday: Street and plaza type ledge stairs shit only, no transition allowed (example Stoner, Wilmington)
Sunday: Bowl and transition type park shit only, no street allowed (example San Pedro, Venice)

Let's see it.

I didn't say stop though

That's why I thought there'd be doubts. If he was still cashing in element checks maybe, but him being on Blood Wizard is so rad. Good for that company to have such a classic name on their team and I don't think he asks too much money. More of a bro thing I guess, that's why I don't think he should "retire".

Chaz Ortiz on the other hand should keep making his energy drink sponsors happy and try to get a tv show or something. Nobody cares for him except for 12-year olds who follow the dew tour and like to see kf front board kf outs. As long as I don't have to see his pictures in my thrashers, he doesn't botter me. So no retiring, but I definitley don't admire him.

^ Retire to both of those.
O'conner might still be amazing, but 3 tricks a video is a bit lazy
Austin Stephens, awful.

And COTG, I've skated with every other person who has talked to me about it. I just don't like you, though I knew you wouldn't be down with skating something besides a 3 inch tall ledge.

retire. I love his footage as much as the next guy but he's just holding back a spot from younger kids on the east coast who are killing it.
