Title: Colin McKay!!!
Post by: fineslime on June 23, 2022, 07:29:12 PM
Pay some RESPEK to one of the best dudes to ever do it on vert. Makes sense Jimmy Wilkins said he was inspired by Colin. Backside 360 kickflip no grab, switch bigspin back tail, switch back tail bigspin. List goes on and on. Everything he does is so technical.

One of the GOATs to ever do it

Tiny tyke Colin McKay (Public Domain I think, or Ban this or something), imagine being that little and that good on all terrains.

Wish he had stayed on The Firm, that would have been sick.

My reply goat lost, trying again from memory:

One of the GOATs to ever do it.

Tiny tyke Colin Mckay (Public Domain or Ban this or something), imagine being that little and that good on all terrains.

Wish he had stayed on the Firm, that would have been sick.

The only vert skater who somehow actually made sense for Girl.

Dude was so incredibly progressive and killed it on lip tricks and no grab flip tricks. He seems like a jock but a really likable and charismatic one. Here's his Chromeball interview:

I believe he was in one ad, maybe even the very first ad.  He talks about it in the CBI linked above.

Was there any fall-out from Powell afterwards? And I seem to remember a rumor of you switching over to the Firm before all that went down… was that ever an option?

The thing was, here I was only 14-years-old and Powell is already drawing me graphics and trying to turn me pro. It didn’t feel right to me. I didn’t want to be 14 and skating against John Gibson and Jeff Phillips. I wasn’t ready for all that.

I did fly down and stay with Lance for a bit though when I first started thinking about stuff. Jason Lee also hit me up around this time to ride for Blind… which was the probably the biggest thing that could ever happened to a kid like me. But at the end of the day, between Rick and Danny, there was no better fit for me than Plan B. I was always skating with Rick whenever he was in town and Danny, my absolute idol, was also on there. It only made sense to get on Plan B.
