Got damn our mans is still throwing down. Full lock in down clipper too! I’m sure imma get kooked for this but some of those clips really reminded me of Ishod’s style and how he lands things. Dope part, always had a soft spot in my heart for Manny lol.

that was a weird edit but I've been a Manny fan for a long time and he's always been a super good dude every time I've met him plus I know he does a lot for the skate scene in Puerto Rico. there were some heavy tricks in there and his ability to heel flip into anything is pretty wild.

the skater + filmer's matching giants fitteds for the first clipper trick was adorable

This is phenomenal. I'm a fan of the guy, unique set of skills for sure.

Quote from: I sniff my own butthole all the time
2nd vote would be for PJ. sometimes it is a fine command of the english language to say nothing and he extended that to skating. PJ's plan B part is the emperor's new clothes.

Music was terrible, would have been a good 2-ish minute part without the frankly overwhelming amount of slow mo and second angles that only diluted the skating.

How the fuck?? Are they still sold in PR or something? I guess I haven't been in a Burlington Coat Factory in a decade.

Idk which is more impressive, this part or him dating Christina Means.
Manny gets a lot of shit from the “cool” skaters but he seems pretty authentic and is a great skater, he doesn’t seem to fake a lot of tricks/style like plenty of top pros.
Fuck it, put him on primitive.

Damn, How many "trick-to-back feeble on a small-mid size handrail" were in this part? I lost count towards the end. Could have maybe pared some of those back, but I honestly loved that part.

Reminded me of the best and worst aspects of skating in the mid 2000s, filming with earbuds and all.

Despite not having any real backing in the industry, he still skates at an incredible level after all these years. Big respect!

Any time I see this dude's name all I think about is Brad Cromer's cake story on the bunt.

Always been a fan of the guy, but I've always wondered how bad his back is because he keeps it so stiff.

His trick selection has at least gotten better. I feel like for a while he was going out of his way to do the ugliest combos possible. Seems like he has fun with it, which is all that matters at the end of the day.

Was Manny Santiago established in 2000, making him 21 years old? Or was California established that year? Or did Manny establish his own state, Manny Santiago California? I need answers. Post your theories below.

I would've cut the lazerflip down the doubleset, but other than that, I though the trick selection was pretty decent! the 3shove nose manny down a bank was tasty - that's kind of a Gino trick, as wild as it is to say that. The Clipper tricks were legit

Probably my least favorite pro to watch, but that was a pretty fucked part. Felt like the part was 80% same trick and edit was awful, but can't hate a man varial heel bs 5-0 ing clipper at 35.

Any reason why he was riding ventures in the slow mo nollie flip in the intro? he was on Krux less than a year ago. Looks like he's riding krux in other clips

Definitely holds the crown for mid-sized, generic rail skating.

and graduating top of his class from the Felix Arguelles school of style.

Seems like a nice dude.

ha ha ha I don't know how anyone can hate on Manny. People get hella hyped on dane Brady skating curbs and kook on Manny. I just don't get it. I don't skate like he does and never did but it's fucking sick. Someone said dudes 35 (2 months and 2 days younger than me and I can hardly walk half the time), and he's still skating hard. still a skate rat, ripping hard, and getting visibly stoked on skateboarding. On top of it he's a Puerto Rican kid from Lowell, which is a gnarly fucking place, and growing up in a city in MA with a large Puerto Rican population I only remember 1 PR dude ever skating, so the dude obviously overcame social adversity too. Ain't nothing to not like.

What this guy said. I am not the biggest fan of his skating but I can respect it and especially at his age. Any way is this clip that has the most ever filmed flip/ shuvit - grinds/slides on handrails ever in a single part?

I saw him at LES and didn't feel any excitement. I think I'm the problem
