that's bullshit. wellcome to hell is about great skateboarding, not hammers. there's very versatile skating in it and there isn't a single part that'd be all about hucking yourself down things. even jamie has plenty of other stuff as well.
LS stands for little sidekick, lil shit lil slug/slime etc etc

When Toy came through Houston, Austin didn't really do anything too impressive but maybe he wasn't really trying. I thought Matt Bennette was really fun to watch though and Harmony seems like a man on a mission.

In Welcome to hell Jamie Thomas does some big stuff but the video also has parts by Elissa Steamer, Satva leung, Donny Barley, its not exactly a "hammer" video like the Zero video were. It represents pretty much every aspect of modern street skating.
Its some gnar shit. Elissa's part ends with her eating shit hard on a nollie lipslide on a big ass ledge. Barley gets gnar too. Maldonado and Templeton shred the big shit too. The fast editing and pretty much entire format was taken by zero and used in later videos. This predates the hammer format we see today, but it pretty much sewed the seeds for the entire thing.

you should just lock yourself at home in your closet, away from real people and the real world during thanksgiving, because these motherfuckers are eating you alive

Not really. All I hear is arguments from a bunch of people who probably didn't even skate aat the time the video came out and are just continuously comparing it to more recent hammer videos. Fact is, that video is what it is. Think what you want, but remember, that shit came out at the same time as mouse. Compare the two. This argument doesn't make me think I'm wrong, it just makes me think a lot of you have no fucking clue what you are talking about. I know when that video came out me and my friends thought it was the gnarliest thing ever. Welcome to hell is not like an eastern exposure video or something like that, that has the whole variety of skating that was going on at the time. Its all just gnarly shit. Jumping down rails, over gaps, did you guys see the slam section? I'm done with this argument. Either you agree with me, or your just some kid who says welcome to hell was a cool video because you heard older kids say that and you want to fit in.

Oh, and Jamie's part isn't about hucking yourself down shit? Your fucking dreaming. It wasn't like something you'd see in a zero video today, but its as close as it got in '96.

i have no idea why austin stephens doesn't come up when people talk about fake style. it's so fucking obvious. back tail to reasonless hand touch down bubba, double landings left and right, easy mini ramp slides on banks. all the pieces are there people.

PS: that kickflip back 5-0 down the rail in good and evil is perhaps the ugliest thing i've ever seen. the rail catches his board, which is the equvalent of having your kickflip roll on the ground.

I agree with Turkey, that video was so gnarly when it came out.  If you were skating anytime near when it came out and you wanted the biggest and craziest shit done, Welcome to Hell was the video.  Jamie's part was so fucking crazy, and some of the shit in his part is still legit to this day.  It has changed, but not into anything unique like it used to be.  It is now becoming just another sleeper company.

Yeah but it is not like the sponsor me video was done last year...i think it would have been maybe 1999, in or around that time. Sponsor me vids filming along with the skating where not what they are now as kids are getting crazy footage and filming and editing are almost as good as company vids...it was still buddy video style back then...and for then the tricks where solid for an unknown kid. But i got respect for the guy...but why would someone have an appreciation topic for Austin hahaha fuck man after reading the suffer the joy review you know the guy is hated on.

It is not fair to claim Welcome to Hell is a hammer video because compared to Mouse it is, almost every video compared to mouse has a lot of rails and big gaps. Also if Welcome to Hell had Muska's part it would probably be the greatest video ever though it still might be in my opinion.

Did you know that I don't give a shit, nor do I like the band.  I might as well name it linkin park, or something more lame.  It is sarcasm, and I don't care what you think of my opinions because I will keep putting them on here with a really gay screename.  Later doooooode

See? You don't know what you are talking about. Mouse has a bunch of rails and gaps, but isn't all gnarly like welcome to hell. That video was just straight up gnarly. My point was, Welcome to Hell wasn't like a tech video of the time, it was more remembered for its hammers.

This whole "tech" vs. "banks" vs. "rails" shit is skateboarding's version of the East Coast, West Coast rap rivalry. I think it's funny.

What if Jim Greco ended up gettin' capped by Bobby Puleo in retaliation for blasting Biebel?!

It's all just street skating, you nimrods. You act like what anyone is doing is so different than what anyone else is doing. It's not.

(well...except for the mad monk, Steve Olson. Now he was on some other shit when he'd roll up into a somersault mid line...that was different...but he's not around anymore)

Nah, Puleo is too much of a pussy to retaliate. Jim got away scott-free. Biebel will be missed.

I guess you haven't seen Ian Reid's Video
Oh I did. He laid an asswhupping on that guy. Don't fuck with Bobby.
Unfortunately, when the gloves are off he couldn't pull the trigger this time and Greco lives on.

Now you guys can hate on him Even more. He's a Christian

There's probably alot of skaters that are Christian but aren't stupid enough to preach about it like Jereme or Hosoi.
