The muthafuckin' Gonz!
« on: March 28, 2011, 09:04:03 PM »
Jesus Christ, is there really no Gonz appreciation thread in a skateboard messageboard section for appreciation? Let's remedy this!
Gonz haters need not apply. Hating on the Gonz is easy, appreciating him is where its at right here. If you don't know why people love him, come learn.
His whole catalog is too exhaustive to entirely post, but here are some classics and favorites from the 90's:
This part is beautiful and simple, the part with him hanging on the car is awesome, same with the parking garage footy:

A personal favorite of mine, some gnarly shit in there, a lot of which people started doing a lot of a few years later:

every skateboarder has or should see:


ok, now lets see some photos and shit like that, some older 80's footy if you got it,  and perhaps some conversation on skateboarding's  insane genius

This one was one of the first skate vids I ever saw. All these years later it still gets me hyped to watch it.

Also, thanks to a really cool dude who works at Thrasher, I have the complete video on DVD (not the edited version that was in Playing in Traffic).

I love the Gonz, but he has some parts where all he does is wallie shit and act retarded. Actually, I love wallies, and retards.

terrible quality but little-seen and worth it just for the last trick...


and this always was a stand-out 80s Gonz moment, the 12' channel in Hawaii. Skip to 1:40, and then watch how sparked he gets after he makes it at the end...

I have to hand it to the Gonz for taking this slam.  It looks like he is about 15 feet in the air at one point.

He has the best bs rock and roll in recorded history...along with eggplant, stalefish, fs ollie, etc...  You have to love the Gonz.  I still have my Real "Gonz Father" board hanging on my wall.
