Ben Schroeder appreciation
« on: June 17, 2020, 01:07:16 AM »
My absolute favourite skateboarder of all time...

Everybody says "Do or die", this guy lives it.

Look at this photo of just a simple lipslide:



Unfortunately there's not much footage of him on the web. Does anybody have some good footage of his skating?

Schroeder is a top 5 for me and an inspiration



A lot of times when I think about bitching out I just remind myself “Schroeder wouldn’t quit” and go for it

I know next to nothing about him but have always been curious about his impact on skating as his name comes up a lot.
RIP C.J.

Ben saved vert IMO. He would do insane lip combos that were only thinkable on mini ramp. I believe there was a vert contest where no grabs or inverts were allowed just ollie and lip tricks. You can thank Ben for that.

Later on, Max is another one who made vert look very cool. Instead of mini ramps it looked like he was skating an EMB block.

Ben is rad, a very nice guy too.  His part in Full Power Trip is a great one but my favorite clip of his is him skating Svitak’s ramp.

Super rad skater. Five or six years ago I was skating Piggy Park in Denver trying backside bonelesses, but not really committing. Out of nowhere, Schroeder walks up and gives me some advice and put a few down to show me what's up. I finally committed and landed a couple in front of him.

Same sesh there were some Team Pain dudes chilling but not really skating. They were just name dropping, heckling, and boasting of being traveling rockstars. Nah dudes, you aren't rockstars, you drink Busch lite and live out of a motel 6. The egos on these guys. Openly bragging about making street courses suck on purpose.
