i was gonna critique how his board just slops off of rails and coping like cheese sliding off pizza, but you guys are saying that he’s a pretty nice dude? Ok, he’s got a pass in my book.

He's rad and he's got dreamy hair. What more could you ask for?

Man...I've tasted hair like that at a pantera concert.....not good....

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

Seen him/talked to him a few times over the years on Go skate day, good dude, creative skater. Not a kook

But we sure as hell know what it aint
Wait we know what it is now too -

Helmet came in handy. Crazy how he walks it off and says “I don’t know” when asked if he’s all right.

Silly Andy. It's a wallride contest not a powerslide contest

This is pretty accurate for me too. It’s not even his style on the board more the entire presentation, fits, hair, gloves. It’s all good though, he’s doing him and that is appealing to a certain demographic. He seems like a good guy so more power to him.

Not a fan of the way he moves or everything about the trick selection personally (I don't mind it, I'm just not going out of my way to watch him over somebody with finer style), but he's obviously good at skating in his own style and I only remember very positive compliments about the kid's attitude from the people on here who've claimed having met him. I don't give a shit about the helmet since when his name pops up then I know what to expect; to me a kook would be somebody who cares about who wears what at fucking Street League.

Re: Andy Anderson a kook?

depends.....does he shred? hell yeh!  Does he do things his own way?  Definitely........but what is a kook anyway?  In a thread above Nyjah is described as a kook.......is kook a word to describe a skater you don't like?  Or is it just a general put down with no specific meaning?  I love Andy........among the herds of rad skaters he stands out...because he is different.....and thats what skateboarding used to be all about.

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

How old are you?

Andy Anderson isnt what i remember what skating "was all about".
  Even if you did skate back then, did you skate the whole time since?

I"ll rephrase it.....skateboarding used to be for outsiders and weirdos.....it isn't that now, but it should have room for at least a few folk that do things differently.  And when I skated or didn't skate is irrelevant.

Its kinda fun watching the old guard of skateboarding going up in flames and hearing their screams of ‘youtube skater X is a kook!’ as their whole world turns to ash.
Skateboarding as most of the "old guard" know it is fast becoming a small portion of the market. Right in front of them, as they squeeze their eyes tight and imagine it's not happening.

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.

I slam way harder than that all the time.

It must be nice to be able to relax while flipping to the ground though. I wrap my arms around my head and hope for the best

I can't tell if this dudes style is horrible or it's just his dweebish get up that makes me hate him, I think a little of both. Seems like he'd be better suited to be an unknown skatepark hero in rural Canada. Also seems like he's got a mild case of aspergers or read Rodney Mullen's book one too many times (once).

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'm sure this dude will go down as the koston of his time.

   I just hate it when people say, "skateboarding used to be about the outsiders and the weidos".   Thats the shit Mike V started spouting back when he 1st got back on Powell. Its used always for flagrant kookage.

Not for me but I would rather this guy make that Andy Schrock money than Andy Schrock. He seems genuinely weird in an awesome way rather than just being awarded outsider status for putting out selfie stick content and setting skating to horrible pop punk/emo tracks.

I get the feeling you’re a kook. If anyone else agrees just post “surfgroms a kook”. This has nothing to do with && I’m just gauging opinion here.

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
