« on: October 04, 2006, 09:03:29 AM »
people might talk shit but is there any skater that u admired growing up but now cant stand? or just a fav. in general?  Mine were p.j, and creager... I still like them now but when I first really started skating I couldnt stop watching there footy.....PJ WHL was such a good part.

I liked Muska and Olson.  Other people that I was into early on were Marc Johnson, Tom Penny, Geoff Rowley, and Ed Templeteon.  However, I was  pretty big into Shorty's.  Shorty's was pretty rad at the time I guess.

Ok,

You must be new to the Skateboard game.  This is real industry talk.  "It's all about who you know".  And that's real.

mike carroll has been and will always be my favorite... as far as i can remember having a favorite it was him

kalis runs a close 2nd..ever since his droors ad where he switch bs tailed hubba the man can do no wrong in my eyes

other early guys were karma and cardiel... an older skater i started skating with was from the fresno area and he got me into consolidated, and i bought into the anti-hero thing early on too...the logo is sooo sick

Muska, or possibly Reynolds or Klein, Berra, Heath...infact every skater from The End (1st. video I have ever seen. Back in the day it was all total ripping!).

my fist favorites that i still love would be ed templeton, marc johnson, tom penny, huf, and the muska

this was around 94-95

i will admit to really liking mike v. at that same time but i really could care less about the guy now. i also went on a peroid of being bummed out on muska, i remember being really let down at his part in guilty. i was also really sick of his over exposure.

my next batch of favs in like 98-99 were guys like kalis, stevie, barley, tony ferguson, howard, carrol, fred gall.
basicly i went back and watched a lot of videos from like 92-99 and thought about things differently (for example realizing how rad barley and gall are!)

Geoff Rowley, Erik Ellington, Andrew Reynolds. I liked Adrian Lopez in misled youth a lot. I don't really care for him now.
