Austin Gillette's weird ultra pretentious persona makes it hard to appreciate his actual skating
[close]

I don't know the dude personally, but I don't really understand what is pretentious about him. He's hardly the only skater to also care about things like fashion, art and photography. Whenever I see or read an interview, he seems like a very normal guy.

The dork has an instagram dedicated to the books he pretends to read???

Arenít you talking about Mark Suciu?

Gaps and handrails are still sick
[close]
The only people that don't like them are the people that are mad because they can't skate them.

Every time someone comments on Slap complaining that ďCali bro rail and gap skating is wackĒ all I can picture is someone whoís either 14 or 36 stuck wearing size 47 jeans with retro remake DCís and fitted caps lol
ďIíll whoop your ass with my arm out of socketĒ

This is an absolute insane thing to say on a forum where people almost exclusively talk about the skating of people better than them. Esp. considering average age on here is like 36. Imagine arguing like this with a sports fan
Regular stance is a mental disorder defined by the DSM-5

The constant trick name arguments here are exhausting and pointless.  Nobodyís ever right or wrong.  There is no skateboarding rule book, no official glossary.  You can twist words around, talk about angles, etc etc.  Nollie cab lip, nollie 270 front board, whatever, itís all the same shit, and if you have a vicious unbending opinion that it can only be called one thing, youíre taking it way too seriously.

Sure but it's also kinda fun. But the thing is language (especially English and by extension skate terminology) is supposed to evolve over time with usage. It's basically how accents happen people say something wrong enough and it becomes right.
(P.s I'm always right and everyone else is always wrong)



There's no such thing as mm in skating. At least not under 5mm. You're not doing surgery or building something for NASA your gear being slightly different sizes won't make a bit of difference. It's all mental.

his tricks look like a cartoon where the character throws a sandwich in the air and it reveals all the contents of said sandwich, but then it lands back on the table like a normal sandwich

I like Max Palmer but half the time it seems he can barely push or pop things so Iím with you on that.

My hot take: Justin Henry was more interesting to watch when he was an AM.

Has he even put out any footage since he turned pro? Like what are you talking about dudes been pro for like 6 months

Kris Markovich is vastly underrated regardless of his sponsor choices.
Tom Penny is a little bit overrated.

His throwaway Art Bars part is still fire, dude skated so fast and with loose trucks instantly fire

Even though I always say manual, my understanding is that if it is not preceded by an ollie, then it is a wheelie.

360 flips are boring as fuck in 2021. Every single pro can do it, probably 4 ways. So boring seeing every line start or end with a tree flip.

Give me original tricks, I'm sick of seeing the exact same tricks just at a different spot in every single video.

At least give me some fucking double/triple flips or unique flip tricks like pressure flips, anti-flips, dolphin flips, late flips, etc.

I donít give a fuck if someone puts out a part with an ABD; How did that shit look though?

No offense to anyone that is all over that shit, just seems like a wack(sad) way to live life.

Itís not about accomplishments or who did what shit first; that shit shouldnít be your drive in skating.

This is not in defense of Suciu, YUTO is winning that shit.
