Were my eyes playing tricks on me, or was he actually riding clear wheels in a few clips?

Pretty sure he was. Definitely when he does that nosegrind line.

Thought translucent wheels were a thing of the past. Guess they had to come back around eventually.

Does Grizzly actually make plain grip? It would drive me crazy being stuck riding either printed grip or a little teddy bear cutout.

Still got the lines from it. It's just something I'm weird about, griptape has gotta be completely solid, smooth cut, and no significant stains or spots. I often take a wire brush to get shit off and of the edge gets a noticeable chunk it's over, gotta re-grip. Bugs me almost as much as a chipped board or flat spot. Kinda obsessive like that I guess.

Aside from that I spent my teen years poor as dirt, skating hand-me-downs until they lost a couple inches off the nose/tail. Had this Underworld deck so long once that the nose and tail were both under 4". Once I started earning my own $ I decided to never go through that again so I change decks & wheels out often and give what's left to kids I see with fucked up boards and always have old wheels in my backpack for kids if I hear them rocking a gnarly flat spot. Sorry for the tangent, but grip with any design has the same mental effect as dirty or trashed grip, and it fucks with my head in retarded ways.

Pretty heavy for a grip sponsor.
I think we're not so far from people dropping parts for sticker sponsors.

Dude rips.  Too bad Crailtap will probably sleep on him as they have with other flow dudes.

Seen this fool skate in person and it was one of the most amazing things. He never fell or bailed and then just left the park.

Is it me or is Grizzly the worst possible shit out? Would you feel fresh wearing that bear logo everywhere?

wow.  he is really good, and really enjoyable to watch.  lots of great subtle and not so subtle stuff.

the grizzly name logo is awful.  so gross.  but i think the simple bear is kind of cute. it reminds me of this handsome son of a bitch
