Skateboarding needs height classes. 6' skaters should not be judged the same as 5' 7" skaters.

somebody pointed this out in the tall skater thread in the appreciation board that pro skaters are generally  shorter. pretty much every time i've encountered a pro i'm surprised by how short they are in real life. now i can't help but think of pro skaters as being similar to race horse jockeys

I've noticed many pros I've seen have the Hollywood dimensions where they have little bodies and big heads. Haven't seen them in person but Sammy BACA, Adrian Lopez, Carlos dr Andrade, Daniel Castillo all look like they could of raced horses

I think we will go another year where Kader, KB, and other overhyped skaters do not drop a single full length part.
i honestly think kader might be soty this year (haha first day). i was watching him last night and thought he has to be stacking footage since baker 4 and has gotten so much better. he has to be dropping something this year. tyshawn too.

Chris Russelís Mohawk is tough.

The 90ís look is ridiculous and no better than the hypebeast aesthetic.

I enjoy Fred Gall but he is overrated.

Carpenter pants are the equivalent of Thrasher shirts for those who donít work construction.

Cariumaís logo is actually kind of tight.

Jagger Eatonís haircut on Jimmy Kimmel looked good on him.

I think Louie and Ishod are long overdue for parts. I actually could see Ishod getting SOTY again and make it seem like heís not even trying.

Carpenter pants are kinda hipstery anyway. Always worked labouring and the only people that wore them were at least 50. More likely to see a barrister or barber trying to pull that look off, most people on a worksite are probably in board shorts/rugby shorts. But then I'm from Sydney so nothing's probably how it is elsewhere.

I just know I have a bunch of pants with little loops for hammers that have never made physical contact with one.  Total poser.

I think Ishod said heís got a part coming soon. Might be in conjunction with his new shoe.

So first of all, I said if youíre pro; right?
These dudes are supposed to be extremely skilled at their occupation; correct??
So youíre telling me that a guy that can heel lock frontside 50-50s on a round rail canít heel lock backside 50-50s on the same rail??

I briefly worked on a construction / mining site (in the US) and every single person wore Wranglers

Nah, if someone chooses to express a dumbass opinion they deserve to get schooled. The guy talking shit on cross-locked 50 50s is a perfect example.

But it's the unpopular opinion thread, not the get in line thread. Posts are made knowing they are different to how the majority thinks. (And I assume often done with some amount of humour)

Hey guys, Mr. cross lock 50 fuckface here.
Sorry I got some of yallz stirred up.
Iím just real dumb with my unpopular opinions in this thread. I was mostly thinking front 50s, but my dumb scared little brain that canít do back 50s on round rails figured that the logic would stand to be the same for a trick on an inanimate object no matter which side you approach it from. But hey, I can take a schoolin from a some overly serious dicks on a silly message board about toys. I hold the L on the back 50 if you say so, but Iíll die on this hill about front 50s.
So fuck me, and while weíre at it fuck you too.
Happy New Year everyone!

cross locks arn't bad, but it doesn't hold a candle to all heels. All toes is almost 100% a mistake but it might work out. Expidition used to have an am Frankie Heck that would cross lock the OTHER way when back 5050ing big rails, kink rails... bizarre stuff.

Don't really remember people cross locking more than 5-10 years ago. Think it got popular when people started skating wider boards.

If you can 5050 without cross locking, that's great. If you can't, it's okay too. But you got to know which one is more proper

This is a good example of an unpopular opinion.

Criticism/disagreement doesnít mean itís an argument or even personal. I would also say a lot of the responses(at least in this thread usually) are satirical.



Also, I stand with balanced 50ís. That diagonal shit doesnít do it for me.

Oh shit happy 300!

if you donít skate to get places you donít get style

This is a good one. I've seen some pretty impressive tricks done by people who can't really push.







Someone got legitimately mad at me for this but here we go: I wasn't very impressed with how my Ace Trucks turned.
