As a 6'4 person I want to say Tx does miracles on his tiny board, I wonder how his style would  change if he rode 8.5+.

I'm 6'7" if I stand up straight. Curse the heavens for making skateboarding my passion instead of basketball or something.

Anyways, BA is the best tall skater.

This whole stanceless shit is garbage it’s 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.

Biased because I’m 6ft 4 but a tall guy with style will always out a skinny manlet, in my opinion. Idk something about it actually looking like a grown man, with an explosion of power rather than a delicate glide through the air.

How y'all forgetting Hjalte? For shame...

Edit: Just Googled how much 6ft is – you consider anything above 182cm as tall?!

American pro skaters skew very short, so yes, over 6' is tall to us.

I never would have guessed Shier is that tall… you sure thats not a error from converting metric data to the clearly superior imperial?
For someone w.no signature ur awfully hostile, & that is why I do this

Seen Ellington in person and I'd be surprised if he is over 5 11 maybe 6 foot max.
Anyone remember Andre genovisi? Was he actually tall he always looked way too big for his board.
