I think the hard to get noticed stuff also had to do with his age and his desire to be noticed.....it was hard for him.  There were a ton of sponsored ams who were on the inside track....it took him a bit to get there....and he didn't have a ton of people pulling for him.

Danny has said a ton of times he was dirt poor.....

That was an amazing read. No matter all the bullshit surrounding Danny over the years I've always held a soft spot for his skating. Virtual Reality Danny really set the benchmark for ATV skaters. I never bought into the world records and stuntman shit but reading that he saw it as a way to explore possibilities and have them paid for makes sense. Watching the old vert skating parts that were tech lip trick heavy makes me miss that style of innovation. I look forward to what Danny decides to release if ever.

Questionable part , to me , is the greatest part ever. The vert shit was tech and gnarly and the street shit was gnarly too. In Virtual Reality, the noseblunt nollie flip out blew my mind. And the switch kf bs ts on that bench

He was definitely the best ATV skater in history for a period of time and I don't think it was all that close. Vert is self explanatory but he was killing it on street and could crush mini ramps too.

Congratulations chops- great output with
chromeball -best possible interview with DW.

DW was so outstanding for my generation- but
lost all my interest since the last 10 years.

I am more hyped about Alphonzos Rawls instagram
account then DW next output, not talking about Cardiel
or Speyer they aged and my respect grows for them.

DW is just claiming pushing the limits and posing the VIP
Lifestyle - his behavior  is the reason Sheckler lied about El Toro.
MT woud make Sheckler do it, and is doing 720 in the grave on the plan b legacy.
