Used to love Ben Nordberg when I first started skating.Then as soon as the dude got fully hooked up in the states he kooked it 100%, havn't seen any relevent or decent footage of the dude for years.

I used to watch Terrell Robinsonís 411 part on loop for a real long time.

Read an interview in a local magazine with Pat Dandy early on too, remains one of my favourites and will do for ever

 I saw an aron Snyder clip at our local shop not long after I started skating and I was hooked,shortys did a demo at our shop and Snyder was really nice and killed the demo (there was fuck all to skate and it was lame as fuck in a parking lot plus muska didnít show, but aron just hit everything he could find that was remotely skatable ) deep down I loved muska and would have killed for a pair of those es muskas and silhouette deck but my older brother who was sponsored by said skate shop told me muska was a dick and got booted from toy so I basically wasnít allowed to like him lol. As I got older I stopped caring what my brother thought and started riding muska everything. To this day though I still have a soft spot for Aron.

I started skating 4 years ago at the ripe old age of 18, my favorite skater has always been Ishod, I watched his chronicles and sabotage (and any other fourstar clip or whatever he had laying around) over and over again, but at the time I really liked luan oliviera and wes kremer, still like wes a lot and I like the way luan skates flat, at the time it absolutely blew my mind how fast and how high he did his tricks.

i was fortunate to find tom penny. videoradio was my first video and it made it seem like he was like some quiet, elusive and mysterious legend further supported by sorry and menikmati in the next videos i owned.

The Duffman. Started skating in 2001 and paying attention to content 02-03. He had an interview in Transworld where he skated the biggest shit. I was mesmerized that he could do anything remotely athletic in those costumes he wore.

At Christmas, I wanted Modus, but it was already the old TWS video, and my parents bought me IE. Diego Bucchieri's part in that video instantly made him my favourite. Some notable mentions were also Koston, Creager, and McCrank. Basically IE and Menikmati were on repeat.

The Muska. When I saw the Crooks with the boom box, I was like 5 or 6 years old, I thought it was the dumbest, weirdest and coolest thing ever. Then my brother got Thrill of It All and it was Jamie.

Willy Santos was my first favorite.  This was a little before The End came out and everyone who skated in 7th grade was wearing those Birdhouse shirts or hooded sweatshirts with the boardgraphic basically just dropped on (Reynolds reaper was a classic example).  Just picked up on Willy Santosís name, thought it was cool.  Started skating a few weeks later, at shit bailing on a cul de sac hill bomb in shorts (donít ask) and my friends gave me the Shortys Hardware video to recuperate with which got me stoked on Ronnie Creager and then they lent me Rodney v Daewon Round 1 which sealed the deal

411 39 and Logic 5.  I've always been awful at ledges but loved watching people skate them.  No worries on the trucks we'll link up soon

ISUCK. Between Tony Hawk Pro Skating and my first legit video that wasn't a tip trick video being Misled Youth it's pretty easy to see why.

Obviously like all younger kids, I thought Rodney's shit was crazy.

Grew up in this small little town in Australia, as young skaters we all idolised this older kid named Dustin who was insane, he was always travelling around to demos then just took off to America to become pro. Pretty crazy to see how much it paid off for him. Other than him it was the guys from Mouse and The End which I watched everyday, Willy Santos, Heath Kirchart and Reynolds was my shit
