Title: Frank Gerwer Appreciation
Post by: bentmode on October 08, 2007, 06:52:33 PM
i was flipping through some random shit on youtube and frank gerwer pped up. i started watching a bunch of his and parts, and re realized how fucking gnarly he is. im going to have to say if gerwer never makes it to a top 10 greatest skaters of all time he is undoubtedly 11th.

When he came to the Shelter in Albany he sucked the shit big time.  Landed absolutely nothing, yet he skated the whole time.  Maybe he's got a better showing on a full tranny concrete park.

so by the last leg of a tour he should be bright eyed and bushy tailed and ready to blow your mind? more like barely able to still stand up from skating demos and filming constantly and sleeping on floors on an antihero tour.

Alright dude I've been trying to be cool with you lately, but siding with this fat little shit named gest is ridiculous.  You guys deserve each other though I suppose.  You can stroke each other's gut's while landing that first kickflip.

Who's trying to impress who again? I have no reason to fuck around on the internet and lie about my life. You know we've seen eachother three times in the past two years, yet you continue to act like you know what I'm all about and continue to be condescending.

An Antihero part would be better.  Or maybe a Strangenotes mini part.

You'd have to get one really fast dolly and a hell of a long track to be able to pull that shit off.


Anti-hero dudes never put out parts. Cash money vagrant is about it, along with cards and trujillo's tws parts.

Greatest Jew on earth. Gnarly as fuck too. I got to see him kickflip into this sketchy ass bank ontop of an L Train station at the Jefferson Street stop.

If you saw him live at a demo you would not think this.

I've seen him and skated with him live during a demo, and I don't think like you'd think I'd think.
[close]


When he came to the Shelter in Albany he sucked the shit big time.  Landed absolutely nothing, yet he skated the whole time.  Maybe he's got a better showing on a full tranny concrete park.

Haha I was there man I believe he was drunk i saw him puking in the parking lot.

maybe he had a bad day.

he was probably having a bad day, but it was also the last leg of the tour. he was trying backside nosegrinds and backlips on ledges and not really getting close, dan pensyl and andrew allen owned that day


Well let's not forget how much Dylan Rieder owned that day....

I was flipping through some old magazines and found this Last Words with Frank Gerwer page. Some pretty funny answers in there. Portrait is by Dave Chami. From the May 2016 TWS.

I appreciate the fact that he's always in the little promos for DLX. Some are better than others but I am grateful for any opportunity to hear him speak. I really liked the old antihero skits, and used to watch this all the time

Wonder if Frank got the real videos confused.

How is the "The Conversation" missing from this thread? It's one of the finest pieces of skate media on the internet. Would watch several more hours of Captain Frank and AA just shooting the shit.

Gerwer's part in the number 9 video was a huge influence on me when I first started skating. Around Long island he was a legend and people would tell stories about all the insane tricks he had done.

Saw him in Portland along with Chet Childress and they were getting on the same bus.

I wanted to say hello but kept to myself, there’s nothing else you can say after you fan out......

he's funnier than tim oconner but not as funny as he's made out to be. one hell of a ripper though. when he burst on the scene it was all fs boardslides for a while then he had a 411 checkout w/ sick combos down these 2 quick sets. and the fakie 5-0 and bsts on the long ledge over a doubleset was and still is crazy!
