When I first saw the cover I thought it was like the JJ's switch tre in Korea where the wide angle shot looked like he was doing it over a river, then a long lens shot or video surfaced and it was more like a small ditch.

But now that I  see this. Fuck.

The footy of this is about to be mental.
Also anyone hypothesizing about what he did or didn't do that hasn't been to the spot should just sit the fuck down and wait like the rest of us to see what happened.

TFunk is a guilty pleasure for me, he seems like such an intolerable shit of a person but I love his skating and wouldn't change him for the world. I'd just stay away in person.

T-Funk does seem to have cat like reflexes and being well aware of that, but this is insanely high rolling. Not quite water tower level, but we're on our way up there.

This is a bridge...

Look, whether or how he cleared the whole bench is less interesting than the fact that T Funk is the rare case of someone whose little kid style was legit good and just got worse as he grew up.

What the fuck else we got to talk about round here besides whether he cleared the bench or not?
Who gives a fuck? No one is dissing him. We'll all be psyched to see the footage no matter what trick he did. He'll get props all around.
I'm still cynical based on the photo - the filmer looks like he's setup directly in the LZ. I hope he did though!

I'm calling into the bank and jam onto bench. $100.
This whole stanceless shit is garbage itís more Steve Berra confusion. Someone needs to dose this man out just put a ton of liquid acid in his coffee or something he has to stop.

I'll message you when the footage comes out. Feel free to do the same.

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.

He had to have cleared the whole thing by that caption but I donít see how the hell you would get the speed for that just pushing. Seems like a weird spot for a motorcycle tow in, maybe he used one of those bunjee slingshot things.

Having a cover like this without the clip to back it would be the next Sheckler bs flip el toro debacle. I'm sure we'll see the footage in a DC or Baker part soon.
He is ofÖ.
europe's like the capitol of england and france and whatever

was also my first impression - would fit to T Funks skating and would look funky on video.
But they would not hype up a bench bash like that.
He is doing the full bench - and this is... unbelievable -  just check comments on Thrasher IG 
guys like TG, Cardiel and Drehobl the king of the banks are flipping out...

the fronside ollie will be in his welcome to Vans video.
Since TNT & Geoff fade out they are in need for some guy with a loud mouth, Billy the kid Stunt attitude and Napoleon complex.

If you read the thrasher interview Gardner find also good word for T-Funk.
"I think the person who can be the most difficult is T-Funk. But not in a way that I don't enjoy being around him."
"He is a really good dude and maybe just a bit misunderstood"
On the question - if there is anybody in the team who is difficult to work with...

I like Tristans skating since he is the new baker kid. But I also like Geoff and Tony skating.
If you want to hang out with that guys - you need to have a hell of a pussy to suck all of  that obnoxious energy out of them...

This is a bridge...

had the water towers in mind to - the bench ollie could become a classic cover like the towers.
The Towers are even more simple everybody also non skaters understand how deadly that spot is
 - and nobody ever touch that spot again - which gave that spot a extra gnarly appearance.
May the most iconic cover ever.

But China banks is a different game. - this is one of the most iconic spot ever- since 40 years every Pro and kid visiting SF skate that  spot - and frontside ollie at least to me is the first go trick on a steep bank spot. BUT NOBODY EVER
thought about going over the big bench. Most of the people (at least me) struggle doing a frontside carve over the short bench.

What's your call? Do you seriously believe he cleared that? It's clear he lands about a foot short.

And as someone said I think cover bails are long long gone. Ones that come to mind are Pennyís front blunt, and Marianoís switch shove nosegrind. Those were in the mid nineties. Any others come to mind?

cant remember where i saw it pointed out(twitter maybe) but i've seen like a JFK investigation into Dane Burnam's cover not being the make.
