Never heard of this guy, but just watched this, and damn this dude is sick. Crazy tricks/spot selection.

ollie out of a window into the street to start a line is one crazy NBD.

clever use of the spots, obvious skills and a sense of good taste - he made even some of the trendiest tricks of the time look interesting, doing them at the most appropriate locations in unexpected ways (ie. the body varial at the start threading the needle on the way down ; out of context a played-out trick but here it was fitting and had meaning). the shove-its with no pop made me smile ; overall he seems super comfortable with his style which then only translates as more genuine. pretty refreshing.

I also thought the presentation was interesting, and wonder how the exact same part would have looked filmed with a VX. can't decide whether it would have stood out more, less, or just as much.
