Trick where you skate through dirt should be considered very ILLEGAL. Nothing makes me cringe more than seeing that shit.
Hard disagree. Dane Brady does that several times in a polar video and thatís one of my favorite parts

If the problem is waste I cannot see how that is worse than focusing.

Which would be my entry but I don't think it's an unpopular opinion.
It's somewhat understandable in heated moments, but doing it just because you can sucks.

I just watched a Foy edit yesterday in the vids section and 3 minutes after a land with everyone all happy and shit he breaks his board, with his ass which was pretty funny, but annoying regardless.

tfunks pantaloon cut is way goofier than nyjah but not as silly as ben kadow

Kadow dresses interesting but it doesn't look cool to me like others seem to think. It looks like he's trying way too hard.

fs180s (transition excepted) are gauche as fuck. really not a good looking trick to me
what's even worse is fs5050 fs180 out, it's every new skater's cool trick but it looks Shit

I feel like it's just a bridge trick to other stuff. Just like kfbs50 is easy to pull off, or ns shuv out. The second two I'd argue can look cool on the right obstacle done by the right skater.

landing something on street doesn't make it more impressive than at a park, and you can achieve most if not all you can at a street spot at a park instead, with more people around.

that being said curbs are fun as fuck, and i will never stop leaving the park for the slappy spot.

Skating the Midwest would change your mind.

I feel like the mid six figures # has been pretty well established, I donít think itís from celebritynetworth.com.  The question is if itís fair that Forrest edwards canít even afford to light a new cig for each clip, while Burnett sits in a cushy office, getting SOTY wrong in ways that benefit his cooperate benefactors.

Cushy office?   Have you seen Thrasher offices?   Also, I donít think he lives in SF and heís out there on tour and shooting photos.   Itís hardly like he doesnít do anything and heís been at it for decades

No idea why you are singling me out, lots of people think mid six figgies is a lot for an editor.  And leave tyshawn out of this, heís dealing with enough guilt without us digging back up his 2022 scandals.

Sam smything it up, eating street food from around the world while broke kids huck themselves seems pretty cushy.  When youíre pulling in (reportedly) mid seis digits, people are gonna wanna see those TPS reports.

Tell me what other editor in chiefs are making at other mags.

Also, what salary do you think a 20+ year employee (heís probably been Managing Editor for at least 10 of those years) should be earning especially when you consider he was at the helm when itís brand grew the largest?

Where did we get the idea that Burnett makes mid-six figures? Who provided this information? AFAIK Thrasher/HSP is a privately held company so presumably Burnettís pay is a secret known by a tiny handful of people.
This is not my SOTY. I'm telling my kids there was no SOTY for 2021

Can confirm. California native that went to skate with friends in the Midwest. Totally different.
Street will always hold more weight over park because the places/things weren't even made for skating. Also, knowing the location of spots is also important. I mean, who wants to see the same trick done by different people? It would make it very stale in my opinion. Anyway, I like skateboarding in general.

A "good" day in the street beats a good one in the park. Way more satisfying accomplishment wise regardless of skill level.

Nyjah has eaten shit all his life.

He blew me away with his yung bwoi era and more painful than eating shit were the people that dismissed him and his obvious natural talent because his dad seemed to lead him instead of 100% organically finding it independently.

Not medaling at the Olympics when you were a favorite going in had to be a really shitty sandwich to eat.

Every part he put together to win the SOTY contest in his mind that hasnít given him one as a result.

He is used to eating a lot of shit as a consequence of his obvious love for skateboarding. Iím actually a huge fan but I can see and have seen that his approach to SOTY is not a formula that works.

I hope he heals up quickly so he can get back to eating shit with the rest of us.
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.
