Wow.  This was soooooo much more interesting than I thought it was going to be.      I always thought AVE was the silent type, but he told the story pretty well.  Definitely worth the time

Didn't think I was going to sit through an 8-minute video of someone talking about a bench, but by the end I didn't want it to end. Wonder how much it cost to build the replica bench.

"we would chain all that shit together because it would get stolen, or somebody would do something better than you did."

Taking a bench, then claiming it as your own, bringing it spots, for only you to skate it, is wack.
Because you can't kill and idea, and we will not be ruled!

the visuals are also mad visual yo

Great content! Skateboarding can be hilarious sometimes. If you tried to tell someone "yeah I got this huge metal bench I stole from a park in my garage, because other skateboarders will try to steal it to themselves if I leave it somewhere", they'd probably think you are losing your marbles.

For real. Kosta doesnt even have to try, and QS has been the shit since it was called 50-50Skateboarding or whatever. Whereas jenkem is the most tryhard shit of all time.

This was sick. If you have a problem with dude locking up something like that at a popular foundation spot, in the middle of downtown LA for that matter, you probably have never had something stolen or destroyed at a foundation spot (once its blown out that is.).... I get it.

Still waiting for the 2 page ad introducing guy to FA and Freddy to hockey. Or Vice versa. What in the fuck could yall possibly be waiting for, I know someone over there is reading this.

Taking a bench, then claiming it as your own, bringing it spots, for only you to skate it, is wack.

While that is kinda true, taking a regularly skated bench from essentially a kinda diy and keeping it in your parents yard probably unused for 15 years is extremely wack.

Heard bits of this story here and there throughout the years. I can't believe I watched and enjoyed a 10-minute interview about a bench that was stolen, lost, found, lost, rebuilt, and found again, all so a grown man could slide his wheelieboard on across it.

Same here! What a wonderful story! lol  It would most likely cost about 2 grand. Surprisingly it doesn't cost that much to have something bent. Well idk about 2021 with all the price increases and all.  Now I wait for a FA deck with the green bench on it! haha

so rad to hear some extra bits about that bench I never had throughout the years. this is the best type of content that has come out of skateboarding in the past few years. thoroughly enjoy outlets that are telling these kinds of stories.

Super interesting story, wish we could see pictures of the fabricated one.

I'm gonna be that guy tho: if your bs noseblunt is not properly bs, it is just as bad as a nose booger.

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.

If this was anyone but AVE people would be talking about how wack it is. Idc either way, but keep the same energy.

The dedication to one bench is hilarious though. Moving it, finding it after 13+ years, building a new one, getting the second one AND the rebuilt one. I want to skate this bench now

Its also weird to think who out there would be doing tricks better than sw fs crooks flip out back then that Ave was worried about

He checks a lot boxes when it comes to being a piece of shit.

According to his LinkedIn, hes a salesman for VW in Huntington Beach. Strange profession for a dude who killed someone with a car.
