I was hyped Devine Calloway was skating again, was a fan in the early 00s but haven't seen anything worth a damn the whole time he's been on primitive.

Devine's clips in never are legit.

Louie Bartletta. Tilt Mode Man Down is one of my favorite videos and he seems like a nice guy, but I think Iíd be fine if he never released any more footage. 

At the time I thought his skating was really refreshing and creative, but now it just seems gimmicky.  I sadly feel the same way about enjoi.  For the past 10+ years it just keeps getting more and more of a hollowed-out husk of itís former self.

Along those same lines, not sure if he still skates, but I get physically sick to my stomach whenever I see Ritchie Jackson.

He runs Enjoi. So that means he has a job and skates. Not sure if that qualifies as milking it.

Itís one of those ďchicken or the egg?Ē kind of things.  A paradox.  A quandary.

how come this hasn't been posted yet?
solid gnar to whoever made that video

This doesnít count because he hasnít been paid to skateboard in almost a decade.
At least when you're a washed-out hipster douchebag in NY, you can milk it at some decent looking, hard to skate spots. In LA you're just a tan-lined faggot in a school yard somewhere.

Youíre tripping. Louieís put out lots of timeless parts and seems like an all around good dude. He does a lot of novelty tricks, but he also does a lot of really hard tricks. I donít see Richie Jackson switch back smithing handrails. Louis balanced his quirkiness with undeniably solid skating and doesnít get nearly enough credit for it.



Also, he runs enjoi now and has even said that heís stepping down to give the younger guys some shine, which is a real classy move in an industry fueled by narcissism.

I think this perceived notion that a skateboarder is milking it because we don't see 'video parts' from them is severely out dated. Commitments to sponsors these days is not what it was 10 years ago.

Andy Roy= Goon junkie meathead who is halfassed at best
Penny- he is rad but ancient and hasn't had a decent part in forever
 Alot of the dudes I mention are super rad and tech or mind blowing but do they deserve the same status nawww move on or take a backseat trip.
I know alot og people are going to get butthurt Cardiel he is done, his back is jacked and barely can skate hang it up and run 18
TNT- met him at a party in Oakland and at 1st KOTR in Carbondale Co snubbed me and tried to make me and my homies look stupid, told him to go fuck himself almost swung friend stopped me but he talked shit I would love to get a good teeth rattler on him total fucking idiot smug prick whom I don't mind swinging at again.

Duffel- he is sick and whatever else is his own business however totally stagnant at Foundation which also leads me to Fellers kinda just there.
Donnie, you're out of your element!! Penny and Cardiel are gifts to skateboarding and should be respek'd as such. There's a reason they're still relevant 25 years later and I doubt whomever you want to take the spot on team will be talked about in 25. They also move a lot of product. Calmer than you are.

These days it's very hard to really tell who's milking it and who's not. For one, I don't think "having a decent part in forever" counts as it did a few years back. I hear Penny is really nice when you meet him in person and still skates a ton, so in his surroundings, he is still very influential even if it's not on a publicly media-endorsed scales.

As for SneakySecrets who brought up Louie Barletta: Louie rips just as hard as ever and still puts out a ton of footage, albeit in the classical way via video parts. I don't rewatch a lot of newer videos and specific parts, because they're not memorable, but his Enjoi Oververt part which is quite recent (2016) is one that I frequently look up to get me hyped.

TP has NEVER tried to be a footage whore. He is an artist who skates and could give a shit if someone else sees it.

So true. His ssfsf down Carlsbad, he had already done that sans camera and only did it again because he wanted to not to get it on film. All the stuff over the chain in Hi5 was only videoed because the photographer there that day realised it was historic and put the photo camera down to capture it. There's a lot of stories about him doing insane shit with no cameras present.

This is true, but the downside is he's running Enjoi into the ground.

I'm not going to say he's milking it because I love his skating and style.

But solely based on the amount of footage he has put out over the years and the way he talks I get the feeling Justin Eldridge is one of the laziest dudes in skateboarding.

Ty Evans and everyone at crailtap wasted Justin Eldridge's talent way before his back injury kept him off the board. The reason he isn't bigger now is because crailtap took 50 years between Yeah Right and Pretty Sweet.

Andrew Allen is a living legend and must be protected.

I agree that Crailtap slept on him but if he was sitting on piles of footage (which I highly doubt) he would have had plenty of other options to release it.

He did stuff for eS that was all great. His especial part especially. He had magazine coverage and everything too, he was just misused at crailtap. They pushed him out as the hot new thing for like a  year then zzz. And he was put on Chocolate at a time he was pretty much the only guy on the team doing anything on handrails. He probably should've been on Girl instead.

I've always been a big fan of his skating and met him a few times and he was a real sweet heart so maybe I'm biased. He might not have been a Jamie Foy footage machine but he put out more than a lot of their riders that have higher profiles.

Stevie is getting paid to fashion, not skate
Paul Shier has milked it harder than a dairy farmer
Gino has great style and his Trilogy part is in the skate hall of fame. But seriously......let it go

Dollin's last part was nothing but slams....Nuff said

TK............thats all I have to say about that
