fs heel was amazing, sick style

off topic, but he rode some habitat boards, is habitat still like a sister company to aws? i thought they were separate now
I have a higher skate IQ then just about anyone on this planet, and Iím not saying this shit to brag, itís just the fucking truth.

Cool to get a black guy on AWS. I really liked some of those clips. Slow-mo habitat board ender is confusing.
I thought it wasnt just him solo, shouldve stuck with my og thought.

I love Alien decks but this new team is just... not it. Joey is dope, Yaje has his moments. Not at all into that skinny little asian dude with blue hair, or this new guy really. The other guy that rides for Globe is ok, nothing special. Frankie Spears is good but has absolutely ass style. Turned the music off for this one because it just sounded like annoying noise.

agree with you, except feel oppositely about "that skinny little asian dude with blue hair," i thought he was sick!!

the rail to ledge smith towards the end was really rad, but overall the part just didnt leave that much of an impression on me. feeling similar to how i felt w that dude on globe and i guess frankie spears too, like obviously good, but just fall kinda flat for some reason to me.

darius is tight, gonna have to watch some of his older stuff now. i feel like the music was trying a little too hard to give it that cinematographer project/arto part sound so it kinda fell flat on that part. darius first kickflip was hella sketchy in a good way. yaje is good and so is joey but i think he fits better on habitat. brandon nguyen rules, love watching him skate japan. not too sure about the other guys, the team is kinda all over the place. the throwback clips & spots are always a nice touch (owl, jake's hubba), the homage clips (bird hatching), and the other odd alien imagery is there but something still feels off. maybe the camera angles? switch to vx? more super 8? more subliminal messages? who knows, but this edit feels like they're "getting there".

Yeah, what's up with that?  That's all I could think about for the rest of the video.  What shirt would need to be blurred?

tight pants with ventures should be illegal (yaje)
darius has crazy unpredictable style, i enjoyed it. i saw him get last place at phx am 2018 cause he just ran around talking to people and giving them high fives instead of skating in his run which i thought was dope

Wade D skating is insulting.

First Pontus invented baggy pants. Then he invented basic skate shoes made in an Asian factory.

im assuming he was just put off by the all the insanely consistent skaters. i showed up at 9 am and the first thing i saw was a dude tre flip fifty the hubba. after watching his part it's evident that he isn't the kind of skater who would thrive in a contest and I'm sure he recognized that

i'm sorry but skating/style wise that is the most baker ass dude i have ever seen in my life. Gnarly tricks where every single one looks like he barely held on.

but cool.

Loved this. I still really like AWS, I think the 2.0 team is sick. Itís great to see them still doing their thing.

I was into it. His FS heelflips are snappy and perfect, his kickflips are sketchy.

I like AWS 2.0 well enough and want them to succeed, but they would 100% be out of business without the name

Really into his skating, glad they finally put him fully on but that music was ASS. Whoever their music supervisor is should get slapped for that. I get the vibe they were going for but the biggest issue I have with Alien 2.0 is the music doesn't leave a lasting impression.

Joey should be fully on Cons too

I pretend that the new alien workshop doesnt exist and it gives me peace. Someone should really pick up joey guevara tho he needs a board sponsor

i liked his skating and watched it playing other music instead.

just realized this - do short people wear highwaters to give the impression that they're taller than they really are?

like gilbert, elijah, others.

if so good job, took me this long to realize.

That wasn't music. That was just some headache inducing noise. Much better either on mute or with a different song playing.

Joey should be on Habitat. Why have all the guys before his part though? Darius doesn't have the style to compensate for his lack of skill. Felt like there were a lot of tricks that were already done in that part.

I feel like Habitat is getting back to where they were before.

Alien, on the other hand, is trying really hard, but not getting there with the team. I try to get hyped for their parts. It's not working. Am I alone in this? Who else is part of team Not Feeling It?
I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.
