Jack Curtin wearing that Liverpool jersey makes me like him even more

They're pretty much the only team with NB kits, I doubt he gives a fuck about them. In saying that, I wish he picked a Stoke shirt.

If anything, I can see him rocking a Porto shirt.  I'm just pumped when I see that stuff in the wild - NB made some surprisingly good shirts and am happy they ended Warrior - even if I'm not thrilled with the Ralph Laurenization of the crest

Tom K's few non wallie tricks were actually pretty sick, he needs to chill on those, and I love wallies.

Adding Jake Hayes was a good move, his style is so fuckin' good

I would be so hyped if he wore a FC Porto shirt. I dont even care that much about football but they're my team! Haha...

Also that clips was really good. NB is catching up adidas with those web edits. Hoping for a full lenght someday.

The spot Marius does the back noseblunt on is not easy to skate... At all. Rough as fuck and MUCH steeper than it looks on film.

Anyone that's ever tried to skate a spot after seeing it on film knows this...such a heartbreaking feeling hahah

True. I felt I needed to say something anyway because of how gnarly it is. But yeah, photos/film don't do justice.  Just spun out on how he back noseblunted it.

The best I managed there was lipslides and tailslides. And I grew up there.  :-\

One of my best friends used to RIP the absolute shit out of the whole spot that people started calling it "Micks park". He would grind the bricks so hard that sparks would fly. Fun fact -  Lance Dawes was blown away by his skating there he went back a few times to take photos of him. One ended up running in the SLAP mag. But what I remember most from that trip was Huf and Co's footwear of choice while not skating.

lol @ PJ and Arto having the two pro models on this company, with a combined three clips in this?

(marketability, i get it..)

Seriously the footage from curtin and marius on this trip is better than what those two have put out in like 5 years.

I'm not darkwingduck thoguh and I understand why arto and PJ have shoes, but still.

Arto and PJ are...well, Arto and PJ. The rest are either irrelevant, gross or gonna be MIA in a year or so.

You're entitled to your opinion, but I highly disagree with almost all of it. I would not call jack curtin, marius syvanen, tyler surrey, jordan trahan, or tom knox any of those things.

who?
