I'm still confused about the slap definition of a Kook - is it anything specific?  Does not knowing make me one?  I am ok with that
  Theres a french expression which i'll translate; "a certain,  'i dont know what'". 
   Its a good word which cannot just be thrown away.
"I just care about the river, I dont care about your back"

whatever happened to "style is everything"?

It was never true. The 2 most heralded skateboarders in the world are Tony Hawk and Rodney Mullen. Neither are known for their style. Trick bag is extremely important.

You’re talking to people that skate not civilians. No one cares about bagel bites. Everyone on here knows Tas Pappas is #1 AND 2. He told us.

Stop defending &&’s honor we get it. You like like him like him.

Tyshawn seems like the kind of guy to hate everyone at least a little bit

This dude seems happy existing in his own lane and not trying too hard to be down, so that's cool.  I'd be interested in the actual story of his helmet, I've heard like three unsourced versions.  Also, like why didn't he go with a traditional vert helmet?  His shit looks like The Great Gazoo.

It's funny how Neil Blender is now revered for the weird, outside-of-the-box tricks that he used to do. Now, if you aren't wearing the right clothes and doing the right tricks, you are considered a kook. That Street League clip posted earlier is ridiculously good. Andy rules. I love how upset he makes some people.

Not giving a fuck about something and being upset about something aren't the same thing.

He is asked about the helmet in a longboard magazine

https://www.longboarderlabs.com/slidejam/andy-anderson-game-changer/

and he does not explain why he wears a helmet. What is the deal with the street helmet?

Speaking of helmets: They are nonexistent in street skateboarding. Yet you’ve worn one for your entire time as a skater. You had an ad ready to go in another magazine and they told you, “You have to remove your helmet.” What did you say in response?

“Is there any way we can do the ad with my helmet.” They said no, and I said, “Bummer.” I’ve been told not to wear them on tour. I was told it was not cool – but I wear a helmet anyway.

This is why I really admire you. The pressure on most young skaters to conform and ditch the helmet for an ad … well, you’re sticking to your guns.

Well, I’ve worn my helmet for so long and I’ve gotten as far as I have with my helmet that for me to take it off now would be stupid.

Andy should pogo the stairs and turn the whole motherfucker on its head....

Fuck yeah! With a move like that, I could see similarities with Jay Adams trend-shattering free style run mentioned in the Dog Town documentary.

Loving the influence that && is starting to have. Would be great to see trick variety expand more. Seems so repetitive out there. Also it's nice to see somebody make it who puts lots of time into helping others learn tricks. He's a dude that fully appreciates the wide range of stuff you can do on a board.

This is the reason why he’s in my opinion the best skateboarder on the planet. For far too long has street been about what everyone else has done at a spot, and tried to one up it. I find this to be the reason I find slap so opposed to && so honestly strange. He legitimizes what have been long regarded as goofy tricks into mainstream. Like to me he’s gonna go down like a Rodney, no one will question his legacy, but he prolly won’t be anybody’s favorite skateboarder. He’s not my favorite skater to watch, but he is enjoyable with the monotony that is street skating. Like skating has had few transcendent dudes who can make crazy what would be circus tricks into legitimate tricks. Like I don’t think anyone can call what Rodney does as “circusey” because he has a level of precision to it where u know it’s ungodly board control. Shane O neill is another great example because a lot of shit he does would be circusey if other people did it but he legitimizes it. I think backing && is a good thing if it can make pros realize that unconventional tricks with exquisite execution can be stylish regardless of the trick, and I think that trick stereotype needs to die. If you don’t let artists just be themselves and do what the fuck they want and create, then skateboarding will always stay stagnant. I feel like more trick variety where every single pro has a drastically different bag of tricks with one another would be a much better thing for skateboarding, and I think && is a perfect catalyst for that.

he's unique and extremely talented. i definitely don't hate him but i can't deal w the helmet and he does WAY too many front foot impossibles to the point that i worry it might be a nervous tic.

every time i see your posts, my eyes glaze over, and i find myself waking up from a daze, hours later.

Street skating is most popular and what you see in Street League is a good generalization of what tricks and terrain we have been pushing this 'sport' towards for the past 30 plus years. You're currently watching the most talented, consistent and innovative (best) skateboarders whether you like it or not.

You're gonna have to tell me what is the 'best' skating and who's doing it?

Bro I’ll be the first to say Andy ain’t a bad skater now, but that’s fucking sacrilegious, u can go fuck yourself, and shove all that Cherokee madness up your ass. That might be the most unshalom thing ive ever seen in one post, it’s burning my eyes.

Jesus that run posted was crazy, does anyone know how it scored?

Whenever I see his skating I think holy fuck that dude in the helmet kills it, not that dude has poor fashion sense, probably because I care about skateboarding not fashion.

When I saw Dylan with the high waters and button up shirts no one else was dressing like that, TBH I thought that looked a bit goofy, but mainly just though holy shit he kills it.

I’m sorry but Rodney is way more stank bug than Andy.

Also I want to gouge out my eardrums anytime Rodney’s voice happens on tv.

FF for life. Rodney sucks and should be silent
I agree wholeheartedly. Mullen is like the crazy (but brilliant) grandpa that dominates the conversation at dinner. Sure, we appreciate everything you've done for us but give it a goddamn rest old man.

Fucking grow up and take off the helmet. He is good but will never be great with that thing. I know, not cool today to talk shit, but seriously?  This kid is fucking lame. Go back to YouTube numnuts

Take a breath, step away from the keyboard, and go for walk. Enjoy the outside, maybe some nature. Say hi to a old person and ask them about their youth. Once you feel better, do something nice for someone (this can be yourself as well).
