Soooooo good.  What east coast skateboarding should be.  Despite hating on him before, Suciu crushed it.

You know in Oyola's epicly later'd when he imagines how rad it would be for a guy like Kalis, with immense technical ability, to skate they way he did (obscure, unusual spots)?  Well, that guy is Mark Suciu.  Such a good blend of many different aspects and styles of street skating.

Jordan Trahan, Ricky Geiger, Mark Del Negro, and Shaun Williams also kill it.

That was brilliant. Loved everything about that. I think Mark Suciu has already put out more footage in his life than a lot of pros throughout their whole careers.

suciu vs raybourn for soty 2013

Seriously though. Suciu is a footage machine. It hasn't been what, more than 3 weeks this year without some sort of new Suciu? And Raybourn, 3 major parts in one year, including a Thrasher part? If there was ever a time to split SOTY, this would be the year.

I hope to god Suciu is getting paid enough to retire.  Because the fact that he's been one of the best skaters for the past few years, yet still not pro, is fucked.

This was sick! all the homies killed it. Ricky all day, Swills can ollie any bump to bar, Devon has the quickest feet, Ishod is a beast, and Sucio can 180 in or out of every trick. Excellent work Hern!! I'm fucking with this!!

Post by: toque on March 05, 2013, 11:51:27 PM
Suciu's push to frontside flip after the wallride,  backside 180 to frontside halfcab (shout out to aj mazzu for the 180 to switch frontside shove it) and everything else was on point.  

Really feeling Walt Woolf's style.  Who did the barrier wallie to 5050/lipslide?  Panebianco bringing out the kalis 1s to film a line for the nostalgia section.  Devon's 3 ollies to nose manual....just too much rad shit.  

Mulhern is underrated.  Everything about the way that was put together was top notch.  Just watched This Time Tomorrow the other night for the first time in a while...Hope he's able to do another full length at some point.  

Also,  I sort of expected Ricky Geiger to put his hands behind his back and push casually for a block after the car ride but then I realized that was New York not Philadelphia...

kinda sad to only see one jimmy mcdonald clip.  his few and far between part is one of my favorites, he ruled philly spots

jordan trahan is amazing.  looks like a perfect east coast fit.  speed, power, style and trick selection.  I noticed that wallie to yellow rail years ago, i jokingly asked my friend to try it.. it's insane looking.  one of those specific spots where just doing it is great enough.  didn't think i'd see two tricks on it back to back!
