I wondered the same thing and then went and watched all his footage that I could find. Heís a lot like Chris Milic in that he has raw ability and does the shit that he finds fun and interesting. I donít care about the hill bomb stuff, but lots of his manual shit and ways of skating spots can be an interesting change even if itís not the most hammer-y.

you say he hardly ollies into anything. but at 45 seconds into that part he ollies onto a rail that's like 4 1/2 feet tall.

I can't do that, so im fine with him being pro tbh

Maybe.....the Hokey Pokey is what it's all about.

Might be some complex mental gymnastics but I'm going to guess Ave and Dill turned him pro?

I like Aiden but his part in dancing on thin ice was like 90% gimmicky manuals.

because the skateboarding industry is marketing based, not talent based. A lot of everyone's favorite skaters aren''t very good at riding a skateboard, but portray (project) an image they relate  to. hard pill to swallow, but if you don't like it change the channel.

I love his 917 part and his Dancing on Thin Ice part where he skates to Amebix gets all the punks hyped. I rewatch both hard

people who are incapable of thinking always dust off the ol' platitude "skating is about marketing not talent." is this really the only way ppl are able to rationalize the fact that pros exist that aren't ishod wair?

aidan mackey goes to real street spots and does tricks that most people can't do. all you have to do is just watch the footage. it's not hard to figure out.

yah, i donít understand how you can watch him do that drop fakie manny hill bomb and not see the appeal.

people who are incapable of thinking always dust off the ol' platitude "skating is about marketing not talent." is this really the only way ppl are able to rationalize the fact that pros exist that aren't ishod wair?

aidan mackey goes to real street spots and does tricks that most people can't do. all you have to do is just watch the footage. it's not hard to figure out.

edit:maybe hill bomb is generous, but that still was a sick spot to come up with a clip for

Long and usually fast fakie mannysÖ.

I also liked the half cab manual 180 out he did down the 3 stair to flat at EMB. I donít know if it is illegal, but it looked fun as hell.

is having a signature trick still a thing?

its more important to have a signature style and way of carrying yourself.

doesn't matter if you have a trick on lock if it looks like dogshit

i digress, he's the token ginger
his tricks look like a cartoon where the character throws a sandwich in the air and it reveals all the contents of said sandwich, but then it lands back on the table like a normal sandwich
