I feel like people still don't know how good he was.  Ban This was like "what?"

^ I just spent a few minutes looking at that last Chocolate ad in detail, it's so sick. Super fans should try and track down a copy of Overground Broadcasting, Paulo has a short but beautiful part in there that never really leaked online except back when the full video was up and even then most everyone would just obsess over Gou Miyagi's part and the pool montage (which are both amazing but also a big shame to exclusively focus on given the rest of the vid).

I feel as if I sometimes didn't give all these dudes the props they deserved because I was so overwhelmed with great content during these times. It was hard to really give each guy the props. I definitely didn't appreciate Gabriel as much as he deserved.

Such an amazing skater, I would put the Chocolate part on repeat. Paulo had amazing pop and was an Adidas OG.

Paulo is fucking amazing skateboarder.  He comes off as genuine, kind, and interested in life, i hope that his troubles are few in this new decade. Dude fucking rocks hang ten nose grinds and wheelies and shit

I have bad taste and I smell like fetta cheese

Always backed Paulo since there aren't that many people like me that like to smoke weed, listen to classic rock, nollie a lot, and play the flute.

Getting to make a deck with Paulo was a high mark for me and my little company. I came up in Los Feliz in the mid 90s (take that Jonah Hill) and he was a big inspiration for us lanky kinda oddball kids.

Paulo is a true original and is still super fun to skate with (does Paulo tricks, as in “what the hell was that?” “Oh you know, Paulo tricks).
