Heath Kirchart is not tall. I am six foot tall and he was at a good four or five inches shorter than me when I stood next to him.

looking at old emerica team photos (reynolds as the reference point) theres no way heath is 6 feet tall.

leads to me wondering….is ishod 6’? anyone tall see him in person?
while cool-guying is a real phenomenon, studies show that 83% of all cool-guying incidents can be attributed to the cool-guyee being an awkward weirdo

I am 6’ tall and do not feel tall whatsoever. I think if I had an extra (angry) inch I’d have Dylan and Heath-esque kick flips. In work boots at least.

I’m 6’1” and Tim is definitely smaller than me by 2”-3”. He is really narrow though which makes him look taller. Ricky is taller than Tim as far as I recall. I think Ricky is about 6 ft.

Weird. I was so sure that Tim was a tall guy. Seeing him so often with Pancho Moler may have something to do with it.

Duffman ain’t tall. I’m 6 foot 3 and have seen him for years the top of his head is my nose level maybe.

Ishod is prob not over 6 foot

Remember lots of 5’11” dudes round their height up for a faux tall guy flex.

BA is a really large dude in person and taller than me can confirm.

Rick Howard might be a bit over 6.

Welsh is 6’4”

He said he was 6'2" in his nine club interview, for some reason I'm inclined to believe him. Who the fuck lies about their height?

It's easy to accidentally lie if you have to convert from metric. I'm a little bit under 6'6 now but used to be a touch over. If you convert from CMS it says I'm 6.5 (.5 foot=6 inches not 5) so it could get a little confusing if someone wasn't used to converting

I thought I was 6 foot 1 for a decade cuz my Dad was 6 feet and I’m taller, but then I was measured by a Dexa scan at 6 foot 3 and my Dad was a liar and is 5 foot 11.

I’m 6’3” and I hate my local for not having shoes in my size 13 1/2”.

8.00” feels like a toothpick 8.5” is just right but if I like a tech deck 8.25” is my sweet spot.

I don't think any companies even make skate shoes in a 13.5. Nike vans DC make their 13s 31cms but other brands make them as 32.5 and 33.5cms so I guess you could try find the bigger make ones.

Ed Templeton is at least 6’3”. Mike V. Is about 5’10” so use him here for contrast.

Fuk soz I feel like this is what happens with every post(at least a couple times my fault probably) so I won't do it again but I don't think Ed is 6'3. I met him when I was a teenager and was already way taller than him. Mike v however is definatly barely average height with shoes on but has a heavy case of short man syndrome

Jason Lee is listed at 6’1.5” on IMDB. Here is a picture of them:



I am a true 6’1” with shoes off and Ed is the next size up from me—whatever that is.

Mike V. Is listed at 5’10” on IMDB what it’s worth.

This thread is pretty funny, honestly. If the Tempster is that tall it really explains why he was my first favorite skater; dude has that tall guy lurch that can be so graceful when the skater knows the type of skating that suits them and leans into it. Jake Johnson is the most obvious recent example of that.
