I've seen a young 8 year old skateboarder with around 30k followers on instagram at my local park once or twice. The only reason i remember him is because his dad would curse at him repeatedly when he doesn't land a trick. I've seen him on the ground crying from eating shit and his dad would call him a pussy. I've also seen the poor kid crying in the corner of the park trying to stay away from his dad and being too shy to speak up when other kids close to his age would ask if he's okay. This kid's rad dad is a fucking monster and puts his kid through hell for instagram popularity, etc.

When you see the slams this little kid takes on instagram, you know damn well that any other little kid would have stopped after eating shit so badly. Instead, his shitty ass dad forces him to do it again until he either lands it or gets hurt, and then writes on the posts how "passionate" his son is to keep going and land it. This kid never seems hyped to be skating and keeps trying stuff as a result of his fear of his dad. Almost everytime he lands a trick, he looks relieved to finally have it over with and not have to deal with his dad instead of being hyped that he did something hard (like any other little kid would). I honestly hope child services takes custody of the child from that terrible father of his before he gets severely injured from being forced to try something that's too gnarly for him.

Do you think an 8 year old really wants to retry a trick after slamming like that?

TLDR: 8 year old kid eats shit hard, cries in pain and has to re-try tricks because his rad dad forces him to

  • You better shut up, Don
Called this in the Trend Watch 2020 thread

Some #raddad will get charged with child abuse after forcing his tiny kid to rack himself on huge rails and slam on his face down huge stairs way beyond his ability and level of strength. #thankyouskateboarding #skatecoach

His dad is definitely a botox roid monkey, which they're not running out of in California anytime soon. Sucks for that kid, he probably hates skating already. All that for what, Santa Cruz? Shit, they don't even make leg braces.

Trying to cripple his kid so he can continue to skate as an extra-capable athlete then sell the rights to his comeback story as a movie

Unfortunately southern California is a hotbed for those shitty overbearing parents trying to make their kid into a star. I saw this girl's^ Dad being incredibly lame as well, at Prince Park in Oceanside several years ago. Same thing - she seemed over it, and he was giving her grief for not committing to a frontside air (if I remember correctly?) in that ^ bowl. Said some really wack shit. I ended up seeing him again at an indoor park and really had to bite my tongue when he was talking about skateboarding - such a kook with no idea what real skateboarding is like. I hope these kids ban their parents from the session as soon as they're old enough to recognize the wackness.

Nyjahs dad was likeable in the beginning.  I heard he was the “connect connect” for ganja for Davis area skaters.

Nyjahs dad got to be a problem AFTER nyjah was sponsored and making some good money

I think about this kinda shit when I skate with my son. He’s 7 and he has a couple tricks he can do. When we go to the park though I usually just let him skate how he wants.  The only time I give him any pressure is when I ask him to do something he’s already done before (like dropping in on a tall qp) And even then if he doesn’t want to do it all he has to do is say so. I would hate to force him to skate.

Always feel uncomfortable when stumbling on that insta. The dad should be investigated for sure. No doubt that’s child abuse.

Why the fuck are Santa Cruz endorsing it? They have seemingly normal people working in association with them like Kevin Braun and joe Perrin. Does no one step in a tell a TM that they shouldn’t be endorsing this?
