PHOTOS/VIDEO / Re: Nyjah - Monster part “Side Mission”
« Last post by my english is bad on Today at 05:12:29 PM »
"Coming soon" at the end had me thinking this was a teaser for another part, but it seems like that's in reference to the rest of the video.

That's a massive final rail. I counted around 23 stairs on the 2nd set and the first set looks similar in size, maybe a couple stairs less. So a nearly 50 stair kinked handrail.



In big wave surfing the 100 ft wave at Nazare was a thing people chased for a long time. Who will be the first to grind a 100 stair rail, or has it already been done?

Not to derail the thread, but here's Steve Nesser hitting 44 back in November 2007.  Stair count source.
The rail is long but i can see a few other skater grinding that rail

I just realized tissot released a 35mm prx automatic

https://www.tissotwatches.com/de-at/t9312074133600.html

Its marked towards ladies, yet it would be so sick if they came up with a wider range of more prx automatic models in 35mm.

Maybe similar like the oyster perpetual models…

Also has anybody seen the citizen tsuyosa models in person? These things look sick…
yes to tissot bringing those bad boys out in 35mm, they must have someone with a brain working for them. I think they also now have a (quartz) 36mm diver too!

Real confession time though, Tissot does absolutely nothing for me … and it kinda weirds me out because people go nuts over them, not sure what I’m missing.

Haven’t seen those new citizens yet, they must be pushing them more on the o/s market as opposed to domestic…

@DaleSr yes, I get matching the watch to the accessories. If you have a mix of gold and silver accessories you can also rock two tone watches for ultimate steeze. The best vintage Seiko I ever owned was this guy:

dickies are not friendly to people with big thighs

Wrangler> Carhartt & Dickies

U shape crotch yo I'm telling you yo. The best shit especially if you cop dead stock from the 90s and 00.
I know I've said it before but we need to get wrangler into skating. Fred Perry too. Just long enough to get a bunch of cool shit made and get some cool people paid.

All skate models feature a u shape crotch and a new button fly. I wish wranglers had skinny jeans with a button fly.
Thick ass denim. That would be the greatest.

Fucking Fred Perry x Wrangler x Fancy Lad this time. Oi oi oi up the Bat Haus Ponks

USELESS WOODEN TOY BANTER / Re: SOTY 2022 Contenders

After watching all the footage...the Jah is gnarly. But I did get a bit desensitized to all the rail chomping.

Overall: trick selection, style, music, and spot selection matter to me. Hence my SOTY pick is Louie--though if he wins people will say its rigged because Nyjah didn't get it. But yeah, Louie Lopez for SOTY. Otherwise do the right thing and just give to Uncle Freddy.

*Also, did Tyshawn or Jah even leave the country for footage this year? I could be completely wrong, but both of their parts looked like they only filmed in the US. I don't know, but since Louie has footage all over the world...it felt more like a solid, well-rounded part.

Craig wood is good these days. I've had a couple of Couches, phawts, and one loveseat and all were solid for the duration of their life.

I skated the loveseats and couches to relearn some flips and they certainly helped but ultimately flips feel more satisfying to me on the  Huffer/ Phawt . My kick flips are way better on the Huffer/ Phawt. Don't get me wrong the Couch and Loveseat are a tonne of fun and open up some stuff for sure.

Phawts and Huffers work for everything for me. Big bowls with 58mm wheels to flatground on 50mms... Couches and Loveseats are only really useful  for me on flat and curbs. Not to get too picky but I'd love a Couch with a 14.25" WB.

Can confirm that the Huffer is a phenomenal small transition/bowl deck. I’ve also found the football/egg shaped boards in general to be great for transition as long as they don’t have the super short wheelbase. My fat ass needs 14.25 or more.

I think what separates this part from Nyjah’s “Need that” and Tyshawn’s “Play Dead” parts was the diversity of tricks and the way he executed them.

I was impressed by the gnarliness of Nyjahs part but he’s got weird jockish movement, kind of like Jagger Eaton that comes off clunky. Contrived is probably the best way to describe it. Like he’s trying to imitate or try too hard to make it look good. Also, while I am not trying to play down Jah’s part, it just didn’t have the most variety. He definitely played his strengths which is totally fine, but wasn’t the most entertaining for me.

For Tyshawn, his skating is more fun to watch than Nyjah, though I’m a sucker for powerful skating, and East Coast spots. However, his style can be a bit stiff. He lands like he’s got Forrest Gump leg braces. As well, he needs to get guys that can film him better. A lot of his clips have been butchered. His style has grown on me, but I feel skeptical about it still, and I feel like it’s because the butchered clips don’t give me a real presentation of his execution. Compared to Lou, not the most variety, but more than Jah, and I have to give him credit. He surprise me with some clips.

After watching Louie’s Cons part, I feel most confident saying he should get Soty this year. He’s got same similarities as two of my favorite SOTY’s of the past. Ishod, and Koston. Dudes that you feel can do it all. Can be creative. Have great trick and spot selection. At a pure talent level, I feel like Louie for sure exceeds the other nominees. He’s the most well balanced. The roll on crooked to half cab wallride thing, the nose bonk slide thing to five o. The gnarly feeble to drop and skating fast. He does everything so well. I’ll have to watch it again, but my biggest complaint would be the choice of his last two tricks for the part. I guess you could blame that on the editing.

Tdlr, Louie won SOTY with this Cons part in my opinion.

Am I stupid? Why was this all in the same shirt? Did he film this all in one day??? That would be fucked.

I’m sure he filmed it in like 2 hours, this is light work for TJ

He filmed that last part in 2.5 days, so it’s possible.
