every single trick in this part was either out of a bump or into a bank - like most of his parts
I canít stand this guy based on this alone. He is a park rat kid who can pass himself as a street skater as long as he finds banks to launch out of. He has played that shit out

Dude keeps looking older but his skating stays the same. Must be weird providing the same 3 tricks since he was 10.

I read your comment before watching the part and you're absolutely right. That is kinda strange. Needs to diversify his bonds just a tad

I thought the same. His street skating is heavily influenced by concrete skateparks. It's as if he is looking for street spots which mimick skatepark transitions. It feels as if he kind of approaches it backwards. I like it though. His transfer on that monument was dope.

I'll be the first to admit I have it out for this dude, but...

90% of this part a glorified fly-outs, learn a new trick, no one needs to see that many frontside 180s in a three minute span, and the way Collin Provost aggressively pursues that So-Cal, Black Sabbath, rock n roll bro image (complete with high fives and sunglasses on the head) is beyond corny.

yeah, i'm kinda in the same boat. i know he's damn good, i just don't care for him at all. i'm guessing he was probably a stupid entitled park kid at one point

I in the camp that is encouraging Collin to lean into the 'big-tricks-off-tiny-banks' thing. He certainly has ATV skills, but I'd much rather see him shredding some non spot spots than more filler bowl footage.

And I completely don't care about the lack of switch at all. Unless your switch tricks have style, don't put it in the video just to prove you can do a switch heelflip.

That being said, a coupe of ledge tricks or wallrides in the wouldn't have hurt.

Part was fine. I'd prefer to see cruising around ollieing everything thing in sight like Donger if that is the type of part you are going to make though.

Not saying I prefer one or the other but skateboarding today does feel like people playing dress up. Especially on Instagram.

If you focus on anyone's kit long enough itll feel like dress up no matter what style they have. Damn some of you have really strict style guides one what it takes for you to like someones skating. This dude just wears band tees and jeans from what I can tell. There are way worse styles out there.

Thank you. These trendy morons don't get it. Provost is not ten years behind, he's 25 years ahead.

Honestly, if anything, the way he dresses he's not ten years behind, he's more like Ten Years After.

I'm going to argue that Placebo owes their entire career to a Canadian dude's skate video part. Appleyard should be getting royalties for this shit.

just think of bumps and banks as his niche. that part was very watchable. I like the motion involved in skating street transition. makes the shots more dynamic. he can skate in tight pants Ďcause heís rail thin. I would barely be able to push in tight ass jeans. itís amazing he can move enough in them to get that much pop. socal stoner rock dudes will always be around in some form. at least heís not trend hopping like some dudes.

Most of that shit is barely even transition tho. Just really abrupt steep bumps. If that stuff was in a park most people could barely skate it at all

He's someone I'm kind of inclined to dislike, but then I keep seeing spots he hit in real life and realizing how gnarly his clips actually were. For a skatepark bred kid he sure can deal with rugged, crack filled, awkward street spots.
