I love Frank as much as the next guy


but man



we're lucky to see a sequence of him a year.  this is meant to be a motivator to frank - come on man!

in a paraphrase of a quote about Calvin Coolidge, he does nothing, but he does it well.

I enjoyed that hillbombing clip on the vans site with julien but i think that was the last footage anytime recently? I find it funny that most kids probably don't even know who he is but thats who's going to be buying a neon pink and green truck with a skull.

didnt he have stuff in the last beauty and the beasts, and also in chris pfanners pro video he did a front board fakie  down clipper ledge, and he had some tricks in prevent this tragedy's montage. in my opinion, he's still putting out quality stuff.

You're really tripping over a pro getting a "pro model" truck?

Frankie kills it.  He's a Bay Area legend and I think he deserves getting a pro thunder truck.  AH has such a radical team right now... new vid please.

A new anti hero video really would be great, it's been what, 8 years since tent city? I know they had that bonus video and the beauty and the beast videos since then which are all amazing, but a full on video is about due and would be incredible with their current team.

i think he's tripping about a pro having a "pro model" anything when the only footage of said pro is him sticking his nose in the camera and smoking cigarettes

i think the fact that he kickflipped wallenburg when he otherwise doesn't give a shit enough to kickflip a 5 stair should get him pro boards for life, i feel.

frank gerwer is a goddamn institution.

Because everything Gerwer does is a lifehammer. Mods, it's safe to close this thread now.

This.  But, even if he didn't put out shit, it's Gerwer.  He deserves 5 pro trucks.
I actually did hit another skater in the face with my shoe once at a demo doing a shoes fly off kickflip but he was cool with it.

maybe he sells a ton of boards and that in the end good skating only matters if it results in board sales, so they tried their luck with a truck

If Jim came to you and asked you if you wanted a truck on thunder I'm sure you'd say "helly yeah" too.
I thought it wasnt just him solo, shouldve stuck with my og thought.

I'm going to buy a pair now even though I hate pink and I only ride Indy's - How's that for Love? 

Besides - he's one of the few things to come out of Long Island that isn't embarrassing...and he kickflipped Wallenberg over 10 years ago - guy has paid his dues.

This was the latest I've seen from him - Anti Hero Double Rock:
