Quite boring episode, the guy skates well but has not too much to say yet. I was waiting for another 3 hours of iSuck show :_)

heh
I want to express my attraction to Morgan Smith. He is such a cutie! I'd love to kiss him, hold hands with him, and snuggle in bed with him. I'm being completely sincere about this.

After ISUCKs banger on an episode this was a weak followup. Guess you gotta appeal to the kiddies.
Mike-Mo is going to be one of the best if not the best skater of his generation. Barring some kind of career ending injury or drug addiction.

i like this guys skating but there's no reason to have anyone under 25 on this show

very boring, as he, like most that age, don't have much of interest to say

He is a decent definition of a skatepark kid that made it, redbull likes him because he is so mellow and proper(at least I tell myself that). He doesn't seem like he is into bad shit so of course he won't have any stories or much to say other than when he started skating transition and got on Real.
I think it'll be a few weeks til that Jamie episode is one upped.

It really is crazy to think that most new/up and coming skaters will not have that interesting of a come up or origin story. There's more skate parks than there have ever been, its so easy to get any kind of product they can want, they are able to watch any and all skate videos at the palm of their hands, they can connect with all their favorite pros and brands via social media and they are growing up with corporate brands being cool. Not that its easier to make a skate career these days with the hundreds of pros and brands out there but i do feel its a lot easier to be motivated and progress.

From what I heard Red Bull pays, that hat is probably getting him a lot more than your average pro's shoe and board deal are getting them. This kid drives a Tesla, the one he has is about 80 grand in the stock configuration.

zion s all right. but i dislike clements and all these dudes the more i hear of them... to me they re the ones turning skaters into these fake persona billboards and they snatch em with the help of the all mighty $

might even be that he s on real because of them pushing more than anything. he even said he didn t know if he was fully on real but now he got an ad... the rest of the real team seems tighter than that.

whatever it s just these darkmen leave a bad taste in my mouth lately- but that s the future i guess so more power to them

Super just blah

Someone just said it and itís true, shouldnít be anyone under 25 on this show...

Jamie Thomas and his beginning to end on last weeks show could be and probably was very interesting for people OUTSIDE of the skate world...

I would say this episode was like the inverse of that, meaning he wasnít even interesting for the people who know and are inside the world he speaking of.. and I love skateboarding

Again not his fault, just probably not enough life experience

I blame whoever booked him and crib for not making it more interesting

Couldn't make it through. Combine his lack of personality with Crob's lack of interviewing skills and that's a snoozefest.

Nothing was gonna top ISuck, but that was brutal.

The days of hungry ams are long gone, you don't have to even be pro...just grab an energy drink sponsor and wear a dumb hat. I remember reading about dudes getting by on ramen with egg in it and selling product to play it again sports or kids at spots.

I agree fully. Interesting skate interviews are already rare as fuck, but it is going to get a lot worse in the future.

Ryan Clements is a capitalist, not a skateboarder.
Keenan had that special ability to make his switch tricks better than his regular tricks but still let you know they were switch.

what appeals to me about this show is the "historical" factor.  the best episodes are all parts of a puzzle creating this really detailed oral history of modern skateboarding.  I love when episodes connect and someone tells a story thats kind of already been told but from a different POV. 

i think there is a space for younger/newer guys on the show but only if it really keys into a part of the industry that is really changing... the industry...   which is why the ryan clements episode was so compelling and is still discussed.  its for that reason it would probably be more interesting to hear one of the revive guys come in and give hard numbers and explain how perceive the industry to be reacting to them than hear someone like zion.  i would be really interested to hear kelly talk about whether he would put someone from a brand like revive on eS, or Rog talk about how its changed film,  or just chris trying to wrap his head around the numbers.



i just want to add: i dont dislike zion.  i wish him well if and hes old enough to drink a beer i would buy him one,  he just comes across as part of the new "traditional" polo shirt nike skaters.

I agree, he seems like a nice kid and is obviously a talented skater.   The coming up stories of these younger kids just donít have the same struggle.   Skateboarding is just to accepted now and. Gone are the days of there only been 4 skaters at a high school of 3000 kids.  Jocks throwing rocks at you as you skated by. Spending long nights skating curbs and underground parking lots because there was no skateparks.
