If he's listening to "it's dark and hell is hot" on a Walkman, this might have been me 22 years ago.

I need to know wtf those headphones are plugged in to. I think this kid is faking the funk way too hard. He's even got the part down the middle, like he's actually a 16 year old white kid trapped in 1997

His posture gives me anxiety.

God I bought some size 40 plan b jeans in 1991 when I was a 30. They were already made to be huge, shit was fuckin ridiculous. Wish I had a photo of that daft shit.

I first read this as "when I was 30" and thought "wow, radcunt is almost 60 years old".

I never really noticed/realized  how fucking amazing this part is, like, he's going fast, skating switch, does a switch Bennett grind, 26 years ago. Soo many smooth lines in here.

he's pretending to read a computer screen while skating. That's gonna lead to some stenosis.

That Paco Jean clip is immediately what I thought.

Man, I have not heard Pacos mentioned in ages but they were all I wore back in the late 90s. They sold them at Value City and were way cheaper than Jncos, plus they always had a way more tapered leg opening.

Maybe not the baggiest, but always loved this.

My first thought was Welsh as well. I think it's because even though they may not have been officially the biggest, he somehow made them look good, while still being pretty ridiculously big.

Love this dude. His big feet/shoes combined with what looks like a 7.75 must make it so hard to skate though. He pulls it off
makes me want to skate the park for eight hours again tomorrow and learn some new stuff and go faster

It's kind of a pity because the early 90's were very interesting times for skateboarding, but the combination of those super baggy pants along with the ridiculous small wheels make watching parts from those times almost impossible to watch, for me at least.

I can't remember exactly but I think either Blind or 101 sold the smallest wheels at 39mm or something. One time me and my friends were skating a mini ramp and there was one kid with an old and very flatspotted set of those wheels.

Every time he dropped in his wheels were making sounds like he was riding urethane squares instead of wheels (because of the big flatspots) and he would lose so much speed he could barely reach the top half of the transition on the other side, then kickturn 2 or 3 more times until he ran out of speed altogether.

You can try this at home, SML still makes 40mm wheels:

Agreed. The trick is to make it look like you arenít trying at all, and he looks like heís doing too much.
At least when you're a washed-out hipster douchebag in NY, you can milk it at some decent looking, hard to skate spots. In LA you're just a tan-lined faggot in a school yard somewhere.

Pretty sure those are Blind Jeans he's wearing, I think they just frayed up like Blind Jeans did so he had sag the fuck out of them to not have high waters, probably weren't that big when he wore them on his waist

Is it just me or do you only see super hunched back old people in the parking lot/inside IHOP?

Del Campo's probably got the widest leg openings at the moment. I wouldn't wear those things, but I kind think he pulls it off just by popping so high on all his tricks. Ideal pant size for my taste runs somewhere within the spectrum from a slim-straight cut to what Gilbert is rocking. Wider or skinnier doesn't look the best. All-time baggiest definitely goes to somebody in 1992, that shit got out of hand. It's funny that the we talk about bpsw as an "era" when really it was only like two years at the most. By the time Virtual Reality came out pants were slimming down to a more reasonable bagginess. The small wheels hung around a bit longer.

just going through my memory/nostalgia thinking of the BPSW era and realizing that for every pro that wore baggy pants there was always the parking lot lurker that took it way further. Think back to skate crews of kids in earlyish 90's and you can probably remember the dude in the size 40 jorts that touched to toes of his airwalk ones. I do look back at that era with a smile though, not that I'd like it to be relived, but it was fun while it lasted.
