my first video was trilogy, a hand-me down from my cousin who got me into skating, along with my brother...  Definitely Gino, Shiloh, Kareem, Jason Dill...you get the picture...and I was amazed by Ronnie Creagors Manuals, and the switch tails at the end of his part...

Eric Koston.  Close second would be Simon Woodstock (his Vans pro model was SO good).

Growing up i got to watch Kenny Reed first hand before he was pro or even sponsored, along with John Marshall and to this day John Marshall is my favorite skater, but from videos, MJ and Gino always stuck out.
Anyone else notice that Tony Parker is the Gino of basketball?

what an abortion!

Arto Saari - One of the first videos I actually owned was Menikmati, and I loved everything about that part.

Kerry Getz - Always knew he was a local dude, and I thought he had some of the smoothest stuff I had ever seen at the time.

Heath Kirchart - As a kid, when you see that Sight Unseen part, you pretty much think he's the greatest period.


I wish I'd have grown up with skating in the early days of street so I could say that it was Gino, or Mike Carroll.

Arto and Creager.  I used to watch both their parts in Menikmati before I skated everyday.

What are you lookin' at? You're all a bunch of fuckin' assholes. You know why? You don't have the guts to be what you wanna be. You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your fuckin' fingers, and say "that's the bad guy." So, what'll that make you? Good? You're not good.

The first video I ever saw was Feedback, so Andrew Reynolds, Geoff Rowley, and Arto Saari were who I looked up to when I started.

Poncharelli from CHiPs. He rides some skatepark with John during the skateboarding episode. Since 1978, all I've wanted to do was ride a skateboard. All thanks to Ponch.

First vid i bought was 411 #28. That 'es euro road trip got me so into Koston. I remember just loving  his style (this was way before i even considered style). I still get stoked on that footage. He does some super long kicky nose manual nollie flip which pretty much blew me away at the time.

Considering the time (and my age) i also of course got into the Shorty's shit. Yes, i liked Chet, but i was like 11, so eat me.  I was really into Daweon and Rodney around the time of the Round 2 vid. I was super into Reynolds when I saw the end. And thats all i can be bothered remembering.

Tabias Walker was actually my idol for the first few months I skated. Invisible "Days Of Plunder" was the first video I ever saw and dude just looked ill on a skateboard.

Whatever happened to that guy? He ripped and had a good style.

Bobby Peru, that chick in your avatar is the most beautiful girl in the world...ish.

Her name is Camilla Belle. Watch The Chumscrubber or When a Stranger Calls for her. Neither are very good, but she's a babe. She recently did The Quiet with Elisha Cuthbert too, could be good or bad.

28 was aiight, Gideo Choi part and Jayme Fortunes nollie backside flip over that rail were sick too. I dunno what happened to Tabias, but he was steezy.
