There's a super fine line between acknowledging your childs pain and also acknowledging that they're hurt, but not injured. You cant have a future adult have an outburst every time they have a set back, they have to shake it off. At the same time, ya gotta say you know it doesnt feel great now.

Not sure how Senior Olson handled it, but I have a kid who skates and snowboards, so this is a regular thing around here.
id say hitting of the head is a good time to not tell them to man up and walk it off lmao

I don't think I'll ever really like him or his dad.  No interview will change that.  Shorty's Steve Olson is still cool, though.

Iím still a fan but would have loved to see this discuss more of 917. It definitely feels like it has glossed over the inconsistency with the brand thatís super obvious to everyone paying attention.

I think he summed it up in that last section. Everyday heís focused on something else. Canít stick to one project and finish it.

Even though it's not mentioned, but you can definitely see where Cyrus is coming from when he was talking about how the lack of communication and direction at 917 made him leave. The dude is so frustratingly scatterbrained that I can see why he would forget to order boards and show up for tours.

I still like AO and want to see him succeed.

Definitely didn't think I'd watch Alex Olson do all that today. Guess that's why they call it the present.

I can relate to him in that I have so many hobbies, and canít really focus on any for a long period of time. It can be kinda frustrating sometimes, and a lot of the time I over think it and end up not doing anything.

Thinking back on what BA was saying about him being able to skate anything well, I do feel he was kind of the starting point and showed a lot of todayís favourites that you can skate a variety of spots and skating ďstylesĒ

I also donít understand some of his hippy jumps. I donít know who else would be able to jump through that volleyball net without eating shit.

He also has a fine taste in automobiles.

He lives the way I daydream about living if I had money and didnít have to work a job.  Just investing in and fucking around with any hobby that catches my attention.  Happy for him, heís earned it by being one of the sickest skaters of all time.

Every time I see something with AO talking I think he could probably use a good therapist.

He’s making some dangerous progress towards self fellatio from that GQ article last year.

If Alex ever gets to the point where he can suck himself off I’m afraid we may never hear from him again.

The part with old videos and then Alexís clips was very cool. Need more comparative skateture like that. Also having BAís perspective really made this piece.
I thought it wasnt just him solo, shouldve stuck with my og thought.

I like that he's so openly neurotic and also that he clearly loves his dad. Alex rips and hopefully he'll put out one more skate part.

The Boneyard Video is great and I loved those Ride Channel montages too. Dude is sick. Boneyard premier on a rainy night with a million people crammed into FTC looking at a tiny TV was pretty epic

Waylon Bone does a great job with these.

Go watch the boneyard video!

There's a super fine line between acknowledging your childs pain and also acknowledging that they're hurt, but not injured. You cant have a future adult have an outburst every time they have a set back, they have to shake it off. At the same time, ya gotta say you know it doesnt feel great now.

Not sure how Senior Olson handled it, but I have a kid who skates and snowboards, so this is a regular thing around here.

For sure but I think the idea here is that this was an ongoing theme in their relationship. Kinda predicated on it.

Really enjoyed this one.. Everything from the Out There series actually. Always a huge fan of AO despite the fact that he definitely sucks his own wee wee during a sweaty breathing sesh.

he should try sweeping his apartment.
also what an odd choice on Thrasher's part. is the story that his board brand is falling apart?

Not for you

Edit:
Me and the homies also picked up surfing about a year ago because of covid and one of our friend's GF surfed and got us to get into it.  It's super fun and rewarding once you get the hang of it. 

Also, for someone who is nothing like me (white, handsome, talented, popular), a lot of the stuff he talks about is super relatable.

Post-Girl AO footy is some of the best to exist. Gino and Gonz vibes, a bit. Tailgrab nosegrind was the trick of the 917 video. I feel like Cyrus and Max were fools to leave. How much do board sponsors pay, anyway? Good riddance. Sylvain should defect from Isle and get on. That'd almost be enough. Tiago on 917 would be pretty sick.
