« on: November 16, 2021, 04:15:11 PM »
I was never a fan when (nothing to back up why I felt this way) he was ďin his primeĒ and ended up SOTY. I randomly started following him on Instagram a few months ago, and I must say, Iím completely in awe at how hard he skates still, the shit heís been putting out on Instagram, and the amount of shit he puts in there as well. Almost every day, gnarly shit. Say what you want about him, but heís skating harder and putting out more footage (even if itís just through social media) than a lot of other skaters from when he was coming up/in his prime. Basically, I just want other people to watch his skating and appreciate it.

I actually feel like he deserved SOTY when he got it and I feel vindicated every time he posts more skating on insta. He's definitely charging as hard as ever. Globe shouldn't have dropped him.
I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.

I'm glad daveed is getting some shine finally. He's always been gnarly and he's a nice dude from my interactions with him. We chatted a bit at agenda a few years ago and he was very kind

Yeah Iíve always been stoked on him. Kid from a tough place who is clearly a skate rat, ATV ripper, does flip tricks on tranny, all stuff I dig.

He's always sat in my head as this kind of rock and roll warrior that could never appeal to the masses- but obviously fucking rips. Not really my thing but you have to respect the skating at the very least.

He skates more and creates more footage than some entire teams put together

I feel Suciu did, but Thrasher was never going to give it to an AM at that point.

Iím pro Daveed all the way. Donít care if people say heís corny, heís such a great character. Like a metal super villain who lives off of guitar chords, weed, and whatever energy drinks theyíre sending him.
Donít dip your head in or your board will end up behind you

I've always been into his skating, and you have to respect someone who stays that active years later.  Plenty of dudes pile out or milk it after having half as much success as he did.

He literally did though. He won SOTY in 2012, and then didn't drop another part until 2019.

He's always been gnarly and i don't understand the hate he gets on here. He's still crushing it and definitely deserved SOTY when he won it.

He had a bad run of injuries too .

Yeah the rocker thing makes me shudder but I back him all the way.

Does he still wear shoes four sizes too big?

I also think he deserved soty when he got it. It used to be about doing the most for thrasher and he went on every trip and had photos in every mag and his part came out on their website.
Other skaters had great years too but filmed videos for their sponsors and had the photos and interviews ran in other mags.

Same sentiment on Luan - hated them as the new faces of Flip during Extremely Sorry but their skateboarding has grown on me. David skates some huge stuff constantly, and Luan did that amazing Nollie Heel at BATB 12, so all is forgiven.

Notable David moments:

- saying that his favourite sport is ďmasturbation while watching pornoĒ in an interview when he was a kid

- holding up a dead bird and spitting on it

- the 600K incident

- that big 5050

- kickflip into the ditch

So in conclusion, if this was a perfect world then David would ride for B bandanas.

Lol suciu was like 4th in line that year behind daveed, figgy and guy.

I think daveed is sick, not a favorite but I enjoy his footage enough. His insta is pretty wild, woulda never known so thx for the thread.

I sincerely hope FLiP can restore itself to some semblance of its former greatness. The ad direction in the new issue of Thrasher isnít really doing it for me personally, but we have a Large Mountain (B-How TS ref, lol) on the way to my lil shop. FLiP should be up there in the ranks with Toy and Zero, for crying out loud.

David needs a gnarly skate ad or a cover, with a big ass logo tee on to grow some new community following or something maybe. They should also get Roos the gal who 50 grinded Hollywood 16, thatís the move right there if anyone from FLiP is reading this, imho.

I think flip is still pretty much level with toy and zero. They just kinda lack a clear image both as a team and graphics wise. You know a toy machine board from a mile away. Roos sure but also Aori and Pamela Rosa. Flip should of taken them at least 3 years ago. If Roos is on enjoi flow it would prob make sense to swap over to blind. That might actually lead somewhere the team is from all over and many do comps etc
