On second thought, never bring a tall person to the sesh. I was trying to get my willy grinds going on a box once, with a tall dude also trying to sesh it, and I was like...

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 think Apples is 6 feet. Maybe give or take an inch. BA and Reynolds are the two tall guys who really come to mind. Funny how BA and Apples have two of the best 3 flips around.

Seeing Andrew Reynolds at an Emerica demo a while back gave me hope as he was around the same height as me (~6'2") if not taller, i was struggling with falling super hard and having better style as I was a year or two into skating at the time and Reynolds gave me a ton of inspiration ever since as a tall guy.

Also i love watching Nik Stain, he seems to be another top heavy homie with great style

Callum Paul, probably one of the most underrated Australian skaters ever. He makes Dustin Dollin look like a small child in the start of this video.

no shame there @blurst_of_times we appreciate the great content

I'm also gonna say Erik Ellington is a favorite. He's about 6'1" or 6'2" I think and has that lanky, Gumby style.

Has anyone mentioned Leandre Sanders? He has to be a least 6' 2"
I don’t care what anyone says, a tit mouse’s tibia is a thing of beauty.

I think he‘s shorter than six foot. Skinny dudes always look taller on video. Heath Kirchard, Provost and Jaws were all fairly short, well bellow 6 foot, when I saw them in person. 6+ skaters I like are sheffey, Figgy and John Fitzgerald. For transition: Jimmy Wilkins and Sam Becket.

According to the skateboarder mag list above heath is over 6' and sheffey didn't get a mention. I don't think anyone thinks jaws is tall tho.

I have stood next to Heath. He is 5 foot ten on a good day. His aura was larger than life, though!

6' is the weirdest height to tell. (At least for me) I'll take your word for it.
Never saw heath but saw Ellington (who was mentioned just above) and I'm thinking no way that guy was like 5'9 look it up and he's 6'1 lol

It is super difficult to tell height on video. Most pro skaters are super short, though, so someone like Heath might pass for a taller person and be added to a list of taller skaters. I saw him when he was in town as the team manager of the Emerica team and apart from figgy, who is definitely a tall guy,  everyone was much shorter than expected. I mean I knew Spanky was a short guy, obviously, but Provost and Jon Dixon were pretty short as well.
