dude is good but we need a legit street part not at that train station spot

not sure if you are trolling but this comment is too dumb.
have you ever been at MC? no you haven't otherwise you
wouldn't be saying this shit. it's so fucking hard to skate.

Never been there but that's a legit street spot if there is one. Love plaza skating.

I feel like he's been very productive with all that Milan footage, I feel like there's new stuff from him all the time.

He's got a bit of that CK / Daan Van Der Linden vibe going on, super sick.

Jacopo is so good. He might be my favorite current pro on Baker

Idk how anyone can compare Jacopo to Cyril, he’s better in every way imaginable and isn’t a corny rapper. Anyone saying he shouldn’t be pro is chatting shit

Never seen a dee or cyril board irl when they were out. I've seen 4 jacopo boards for the few months hes been pro. And i check what ppl are riding all the time.

I actually can second this, i saw someone riding his board yesterday. All of the graphics he has have been dope and i think comparing cyril and dee to jacopo is a bit like apples to oranges, They just dont appeal to the same crowd i dont think
It's only your local kook jock surfers who rag on bodyboarders, everyone else knows they charge.

I'm Jacopo all the way but Cyril actually isn't horrible at rapping. Got more flow than most skate rappers. I could see him getting pretty good at it.

I wish I didn't have to look at your sig in every thread tbh. That shit is annoying and usually so are your posts.

What’s up with Jacob Walder?

When I see jacopo on the bottom of a baker board my mind just thinks Jacob walder who I think should’ve been in the little kid section with rammy and theotis. Maybe it would’ve motivated him to film more definitely liked his clothing/skateboard style

Kid rules. Great trick selection, skates fast, powerful style.

Also his footage is mostly train station because I'm pretty sure Reynolds wanted him to film a train station-centric part for Baker 4, kind of like Kalis/Stevie in Love Park.

Really like this graphic as well:

Jacopo is doing fine and Baker is wise to have him.
As much as I don't want things to change, social media presence has a HUGE weight these days in a professional's success and board sales, and Jacopo is one of the most successful in Europe right now.

While some might consider his 2020 output lackluster, a measuring stick like the Quartersnacks Top 10 weekly roundup, which accounts for social media clips as well as 'parts', highlighted Jacopo a lot. By my accounting for the 4Ply article on the QStop10 for 2020 (http://4plymag.com/qstop10/), Jacopo was a top ten skater for the year. Maybe even top 5.

One might see Lucas Puig as a parallel. Not really a 'part' skater like Mason in 2020, but still constantly getting our attention with social clips. Ishod in 2020 too. It's just the new reality of skate footage.

Honestly, and this is hard to swallow, but for a lot of youngsters buying boards and apparel, social media footage holds more weight than 'parts'.
Warm Up Zone. Let's watch some skateboarding videos.

>A lot of baker dudes got kicked out for less and doing more, like Cyrill.

Dee and Cyril were on for years and never took off as far as popularity goes, this dude just got on

Im a big jacopos fan, but Baker 4 is like a year before Corona shit and a lot of euros has been productive even with pandemic.

You know Baker 4 came out in November 2019 right?  The whole world was in lockdown within 4 months of it coming out. Yeah its been a year and a half now but not a full year before Covid.

Reposting this 2020 part of his bc it seems ignored by most. Nollie flip ng revert out mid ledge buys him two years of not doing anything. And he’s been doing things.

Just come to Italy man. His board is everywhere, shops and in the street. It’s not all about the USA market and interest

This is what skateshops in Italy looked like when he turned pro.

And they sold out within a week for the most part.

Tbh every pro skater that has tried music has absolutely sucked at it. I’m all for them trying and I am interested in listening because of there skating but that’s it.

I think the most talented skate musician is Tommy Guerrero and while he is pretty good any 16 year old kid at Eastman can shred his song during first listen I’ve seen it!

Another example of this is the lack of support seen for them outside the skate industry....

Matt pailes did get a lot of views with ganja on my Brain and I love that song but it’s kinda a gag. Not some mind blowing Augustus Pablo genre defining stuff.....

Dee looked and skated like a budget extra from that Pig Wood Slaughterhouse video. Should never have been on Baker.
