how are you gonna do an american psycho theme and not skate to huey lewis or phil collins
That's a good point, but for the most part I don't think videos on Thrasher receive a lot of thought/effort toward the themes that are chosen for them. Zygote was confusing, for example.

No idea why this dude is a thing. He never stalls any of his handplants, frequently stinkbugs, and slaps his board down every time he airs out...like every. single. time. zzzzzzzzzzz

You're a fucking idiot.

His approach and execution is the pinnacle of savagery.

Appreciate the gnar
I feel like the majority of Slap is the kids trying really tech shit on the last 6 inches of the skatepark ledge, they aren't gonna get this dude.  Who is, while not sweet to watch like GT, terrifying and awesome.

g.i.s.m.

Chris Russell certainly isn't "trash" but he's hyped for no good reason. Just because someone goes for it doesn't mean they're automatically amazing at skateboarding. You know who goes for it and is insane at skating? Ben fucking Schroeder.

And yeah, Raney, Ronnie, Raven, GT, etc. the newer generation of vert/tranny skaters are all way beyond Russell.

The majority of SLAP is dudes in their 30s stuck in the 90s and early 2000s dickriding east coast skating and skating boards from brands like FA, Polar and Magenta trying to fit in.

I've seen Ben Schroeder almost kill himself several times in the space of a few hours on multiple occasions just riding his skateboard, he is no fucking joke.

Chris Livingston's parts in the H-Street videos are some of my favourites

Stop trying to talk sense to Main, he's the stupidest motherfucker on this board. Pretty much everything he's said is stupid and incorrect. Russell stalls his inverts and hucks himself

Y'all keep mentioning top pros and saying Russell isn't as good as him, its not like a person should have to be Grant or Raney to be pro, because if that was the case, only Grant and Raney would be pro. The dude has released a couple of parts and won Vans bowl contests against all those dudes you claim are oh-so-much better than him, he's ready for a board.

Are you a kook? If you would say this, the answer is “YES”
I quit skating for a time due to piling out
