While I really like the look of the halfcab shoe, I don't feel like giving Steve Caballero my money.

Front Boards on ledges are fun and can look cool.

Pop shuvs out of kickers are rad.

That should fill all the boxes for this thread.

I'd agree I don't know who first thought of it or why every restaurant who tries to get fancy does it but tall burgers are fucking stupid. Have they seriously never seen a human mouth before? How are you supposed to eat something with the dimensions of a coke can? Worst I had was from a local golf club that brags about it's best burgers. It was seriously a tennis ball of meat with tomato's just balancing on top, impossible to eat. Squashed it down and so much liquid grease/oil came out ruined the entire bun.
yeah it's so dumb, really don't see the appeal of 'bigger is better', basically the culinary equivalent of double flips

also not a fan of tomato in burgers

I think they look great, just feel like they'd be a little too bulky for my liking.

Don't want cab to get money for his shoe but don't mind giving him credit for a trick he didn't invent.

Why?

It's hard to explain. Let's just say I am more of a fan of Ray Barbee for example. He seems way more down to earth, modest and friendly. Something about Cab always irked me, for reasons I don't know. His internet appearance doesn't help either. It all seems like acting to me, I dunno.
Maybe it's that case, when people act all cool and chill and they aren't like that in real life. Although I never met Cab of course. Maybe someone on here met Cab and can correct me. @JRF maybe?

I love the way a half cab looks, I would wear one to chill but Iíll never wear one to skate again. In my experience the sole is much more narrow than the upper and so it folds over a bit. This has lead to many, many rolled ankles for me. Even if I tie it tight but that looks like dogshit. And I have thin feetÖSk8-hi 4 lyfe

I was 17 when I was friends with cab. I really canít say if he is a chill dude nowadays.. after I was kicked off powell I never really heard from him againÖ he stopped being friends with caswell when caswell left powell to ride for toy machine. I thought that was pretty lame. Caswell had a good reason to leave powell at that time, he had a lot more opportunities open up for him by quitting powell, so cab should of been stoked for caswell, after all, they were friends and cab shouldíve been stoked for him because it was blatantly obvious that it was the right move for caswell to make. I know that doesnít really answer the question and I canít really say what type a person cab is these days because people change obviously.. ray barbee has always been an awesome person and very interesting to hang out with and talk to.

I'm liking the frying pan burgers right now (altho I tend to like less fancy thing, like a peasant) even occasionally go extra minimal effort and throw a burger in the oven. Still pretty nice.

Maybe less unpopular these days but a video part doesn't have to be over two mins and definatly doesn't have to be over five mins. Also shouldn't take more than a year to make.

I agree. Skating is so sick right now.

As long as you avoid IG and TikTok you can avoid the worst of skating pretty easily. But it's there is you enjoy indulging in hate watching.

Heel lock is the only proper way to do 5050s plus it looks better. Yes I skate round rails and don't cross lock because that wasn't a thing when I was learning them.
