Josh Mattson - frontside flip over shallow end stairs
« on: February 13, 2012, 01:50:18 PM »
Ran across this some recent footy of an old Ben Lomond skating buddy; the ender is gnarly on all levels. With guys like Josh and Pedro Barros, Pocket Pistols is really putting their shit together.

Too much good stuff to call out. The bluntslide dismounts too, alley-oop and sideways weirdness. He has been ripping for a long time but really grown up and coming into his own.

back nose grind/pick or whatever 270 was too good! Unknown pool skaters usually aren't shredding that hard. This dude deserves some shine.

Yeah, Josh has been ripping for a number of years. He's probably in his late 20's by now but outside of the greater Santa Cruz/SF Bay area a lot of people probably haven't heard much about him aside from a nod in Thrasher here and there.

Seems like he's come a long way from winning battle of the shops and selling dime bags at the skatepark.

There's a ton of great footage floating around. Here are a few clips but there are probably much better ones out there.

How so? Not arguing, really just curious. I have a story but don't base judgement off a couple brief encounters.

I knew Mattson could skate, but this footy is just nuts!

He's a loudmouth, or at least was a few years back. He's not a like an "SC local" type dick*, just kind of obnoxious. Not trying to defend or attack. I've skated with him a few times a few years ago, and aside from him being an amazing skateboarder, that was the impression I got.
I liked how he had an old school cruiser that had a mini bowl drilled into a corner to smoke weed from.

*sidenote: not all sc locals are dicks, but there is a specific subtype of local that isn't particularly pleasant if you weren't born and raised there

I know exactly the people you're talking about. Also agree that when he was younger he was obnoxious and could come off as a dick, that was my first impression, but I've seen much worse attitudes and personalities. I had a good amount of killer sessions with him after that and my impression changed, he was pretty fun to skate with most of the time. Don't know about now, haven't talked to him since '09. He's pushing 30, maybe he's grown up matured. Looks like his skating has at least.

he definitely rips, it's just the shit that comes out of his mouth, and the way he carries himself.  not that cool of a dude and really into himself.
