Crazy to hear people weren’t feeling him in his heyday - do you mean Baker 3, TIS era? Cause Misled Youth EE skating to Slayer is absolutely all time to me.

I got into him during Baker 3. Wasn’t too into him before that but probably cause i was more into Crailtap style vids and not anything Zero related.

Same. At the time, I liked clean skating and didn't like how wild his style got. The more we're flooded with generic/forced style, the more I appreciate his loose skating.

Surprised people said they weren't stoked on him. I always thought he was sick. This was really nice. I will watch this again.

This has been my favorite Out There so far, EE is like a really good dude... On a weird side note i live next to the house he grew up in (shown at 6:29 in the video)

I wasn't a big fan of his til I saw an early berrics game of skate, and his flat ground game was incredible. I've looked for it since, but can't comb through all the junk on YouTube forever. Anybody remember the clip I'm talking about?

I'm a huge Ellington fan but have never been down for this "I glassed a guy in the face for being annoying... and it was a learning experience for me" bullshit. The turning point isn't "I could have lost all this", it's "I stabbed a person in the face with a glass".

No surprises here. EE has always been one of the goats.

This series is so great. Seeing him still trip out on Penny's fs flip over the rail in Huntington was rad.

This. I was as little put off from his style when I first saw it because I'd never seen anybody skate like that but he's just been more and more fascinating as his career has progressed. His Emerica part really made me see the beauty in his skating and he's become one of my favorites. Even the epicly later 'd episode conflicted with how I thought he'd be in everyday life because he's super down to Earth. Level headed. That bar fight shit sounded super crazy though. Dude probably deserved it.

to be fair he didn’t stab anyone in the face, he smashed a glass on someone’s head and the guy got sliced. But yeah didn’t sound like he felt very bad for the guy

That line in the puffy jacket in the PD montage of Baker 2G is one of my all time favorites.  I wish they’d reuse the song too. 

I wonder what happened to his Brazilian wife Luciana.   It’s rare to see fathers get custody, so it always perks my ears up when it happens.

Glass smashing aside, is EE a top 5 well-adjusted aging professional skateboarder?

The 360 flip of a curb cut at :26 was all I needed. He just got better from there.

I searched high and low for a proper puffy jacket to skate in after that. Failed. Only one EE

Was thinking similar, maybe not deserved but if you talk shit to someone you don't know for no good reason you're rolling the dice.

Hopefully he's learned some respect. Ellington seems to have learnt a lesson.

I know people say this about skaters a lot but honestly in my eyes, no-one skates close to how Ellington does. He just does tricks differently, I dunno what it is.

Low key I'm still hoping my facial hair grows out more though cause mine currently looks like EE's haha, anyone here ever used a derma roller?

Like everyone else here pretty much, I wasn't always a huge EE fan but as of late have been really into him and his skating. This video solidified those sentiments. He seems like an awesome person and I back him.

Side note, I DM'd him on Instagram a few days ago to ask him about what he's doing with that Li-ning shoe company. He was very personable and again, seems like an awesome person. He said he's doing a line of skate shoes for them and they're going to be sold through a site he's affiliated with. I don't know what site that is though, but something skate related I'm assuming. It seems like those shoes aren't sold in the usa normally so it takes a little fandangling to get them sold here. If they look decent and aren't $100+ I may grab a pair of I can.

That kind of behavior usually comes from people that are overdue for a reality check. EE obliged. I'm not advocating for anybody getting slashed up but he stood up for himself. That's literally a case of getting bullied in an adult setting. He's no punk and let dude know.
