Peter Hewitt
« on: January 09, 2021, 03:59:58 AM »
I am curious as to how many Slap pals and others are into transition terrorists like Peter Hewitt.

A recent post just made me think I hadn't really seen anything of him on here, although there are a few posts of videos here and there with him in it.

I also like someone's comment about this "if you canít deck em donít do em" which also rings true of how he skates.

I meant to post this earlier, but this was a stand out part, from four and a half years ago now.

No surprise I would wear that same wardrobe every day of my life I think, if not the specific brands, at least the look, but I am into the same brands - Vans shoes, Dickies (not Volcom), Antihero, Independent, Spitfire, etc.

This was the compilation of earlier footage I was looking for which is nice all in the one video.

This guy has compiled footage from quite a few rad dudes, and well worth a check of his youtube page.

That boosted frontside boneless made me yell the first time I watched this part.  The Miller flip a couple clips later is an absolute masterclass.  Hewitt is one of the best pure transition skaters, ever.

It is the combination of short dude (and I mean so very short) and the 14.5 long wheelbase on the 8.38 boards.

I used to always think he had a super long board, but when we met him on a tour, he was the shortest dude there, so it makes sense that he always looks like he is riding such a long board - the same board I ride but I am tall and the size fits right for my skating - mainly transition nowdays anyway.
