Can piss be covered in shit? Given the fact piss is a liquid, I don't think it be covered in a solid.

I think piss covered shit would be more fitting.

is having a signature trick still a thing?
Not sure if itís still a thing, but THIS dude built a shoe empire that lasted nearly two decades as the unchallenged leader in skate footwear, out of a little Sims cash & a stupid trick (shown here) called the flare. Or la fusee, en France.

Didn't know the guy before - but apart from what everyone else said:

* Goes fast with interesting tricks
* Has unique style - on board and persona
* I'd rather watch some of these clips again than the 100.000th big rail trick or big trick down some stairs which looks all the same nevertheless etc.
* Guy seems to have fun skating

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.
Its the other way around - to manny people are really good in riding a skateboard and doing the wildest tricks with it.
Its not enough to be good at Skateboarding to become a face / personality for a skateboard hardgood brand. 

to the OP
Dill and Ave decide to create a sister brand for FA which shoud be more "edgy" "punk" "hardcore" then FA without being
a copy of all other "punk" "hardcore" brands  already in skateboarding - so you need to find people who gave that idea of a brand a look/ identity.
I am not a fan of Aiden - but big fan of AA.
At least we need to realize that Dill and Ave create two of the more successful new board brands of the last years.
Who thought that 20 years ago about Dill - if you see Kosten & Guy in comparison.(or manny other)
So they did more right then wrong. And Aidenīs Skateboarding is a part of that story of success.
For sure the Boards I see in the shop / wild are Tyshawn, Na-kel, Elijah and most of all the stamp embossed team boards.

This and all soft goods is the bread and butter of the brand. Aiden is more a side kick with one board per season - I have never seen his pro board so I assume that even that one board have a smaller production volume then each Tyshawn board.

Dont be worry that Aiden is a pro skateboarder - he is just living his life.

I feel like he was also this generations ride off a roof guy but moved on to bombing dirt hills when more people started getting roof clips
So preoccupied with whether he could do it for the culture he didnít stop to think whether he should do it for the culture

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

It's pretty interesting how many freestyle skaters went on to be the biggest industry players.

was thinking about it last night and dancing on thin ice has i think ZERO handrails. dont think it has a single flip trick down stairs. theres hardly any stair sets in general, and normally they are skated in a unique way if there is one like a wall ride shove or going down that skinny ass suitcase ramp. there is not a single flat ground flip trick in the entire video as far as i know either.  oh just that massive hubba that he slams on in the very beginning  ;D

because his firey ginger hair absorbs more light and thus protects other, more valuable team riders from harmful UV rays

Because he's marketable due to his association with Supreme. He's not the first and won't be the last of guys who go pro because they are in the right place at the right time and know the right people. I will say, FA has to be the least balanced team talent wise I've ever seen. They have 3 guys who are legit prodigies in Louie, KB and TJ, and then a couple of guys who are pro due to being homies with the right people.
