You'd have to be living under a rock to not know about these videos at this point.
What's everyone think about the Vlog age of skateboarding?

He's the content cop (idubbz) of skateboarding minus the very edgy jokes. It's straight forward criticism against the "wholesome only no criticism allowed!!" skate subcommunity.

I guess you could say he's a necessary "evil" even though nothing he uploads is actually evil or toxic. I am a huge fan since I'm so sick of the previously mentioned subcommunity. I also find it hilarious that he's actually an insanely good flow skater which can back up all the criticism he says.

I think he is great. I'm not sure if he is/was on slap, but he is cashing in on something we could have been doing years ago. I am happy that he is making money.

He’s entertaining and makes some valid points especially about Steve Berra, cariuma, etc. I disagree with a lot of things he says but I don’t really care about that. Seems like a good dude overall.

His vocal timbre is unfortunate, but he has good takes. His skating is about at the level of pro-for-Frog, which I did not expect.

I think you’re overhyping gifted hater and under hyping frogs teams. Joa isn’t doing shit like nick, franky and evan

 Wish he'd cool it with the Tik Tok editing but I appreciate him.

Does this mean we are gonna get an airsoft fatty documentary equivalent in the skating world.

So before he woke up, I shaved off my eyebrows, too. That way, whenever he woke up the next day, he’d probably say something like, “Hey, you don’t have any eyebrows!”
“Neither do you.”
That was my way of softening the blow. GERWER

I wish him and gary would team up for a skate/hateline episode.

Otherwise I could watch him for hours discussing nyjah.

big fan. he calls out a lot of the bullshit in skateboarding that needs to get called out (Nyjah, the Berrics, Illegal Civ, Cariuma, etc.)

however: i think we're all guilty of participating in the "cool-guy mentality" side of skateboarding culture in some capacity, whether it's buying into the idea of "illegal tricks", thinking certain brands/gear/clothes are whack, participating in the "you shouldn't push mongo" discourse, etc. A lot of that is natural and probably in good fun most of the time (of course it's fun to shit on skatepark bowl flyouts and benihanas or whatever, just like it's fun to be into ride-on grinds and wallrides or whatever else you think is cool right now). All of that ultimately comes down to what we find tasteful or cool, and there's nothing wrong with taking those stances, and although it's all subjective, it's a fallacy that there isn't at least some degree of objectivity to cultural tastefulness.

I think where I get tripped up sometimes is that dynamic creates a culture of exclusivity that is ultimately harmful to the skateboarding community. The barriers to entry for marginalized people (queer, POC, women, etc.) in skateboarding are already quite high and I think a big part of that is when you're already intimidated because you're different from other people in the community (mostly straight white dudes), it becomes exponentially more intimidating when you realize that there's this generally accepted mentality of judgement in skateboarding and there are unspoken hierarchies of coolness for tricks, gear, etc. that you're supposed to just be aware of somehow and adhere to. Sucks to think how many young women or queer kids etc. (or even just kids with shy or anxious tendencies outside of identity) might have gotten into skateboarding if that part of the culture wasn't so aggressive.

Anyways, the reason I bring this up is that even though I'm certainly guilty of participating in this mentality and I find these videos funny too, it concerns me that concretely verbalizing those unwritten rules into trick tier lists and gear tier lists and shit like that only serve to further that mentality and spread it to young kids. Gifted Hater does a pretty good job of trying to establish that these are just his opinions and that they shouldn't be taken too seriously, this isn't meant to be a dig at him, just expressing some hesitancy I feel when I watch that kind of content from him. All in all I think he's rad and has great takes most of the time (and a great skateboarder to boot).

I like some of his content, other times it seems like he's trying really hard to be ironic. Sometimes I fully agree with him and sometimes its a hard disagree for me dog, but that's cool.

The best part about him is that he's actually pretty good at skating and has cool style. I often like his skate clips a lot more. He should film a part.

Got a lot of good takes and is pretty funny and also shreads. I'm a fan. Don't really agree on a lot of his opinions on tricks though, and sometimes it gets a bit irritating how much he always tries to be on the cool guy side

Also to me it's really surprising he's making over 5k a month from patreon. That's probably more than half of the pros He's commenting on haha

Hes probably the most intelligent self aware and just generally with it skate youtuber to date.  His skills make it more fun than if he sucked, but its mostly his sound thought process that lends some appeal to his videos.

Big ol’ fan.  He’s the only person I actually subscribe to on Patreon because his part reviews are packed with little details about stuff that I would have never noticed otherwise.

Should be in useless wooden toy banter.

He's decent at skating. Don't really go out of my way to watch his vids, it's more concise to just casually browse slap.

Dudes vids are basically skate TMZ; so sometimes I'd rather not.

That's something I'd DEFINITELY need to watch.

Sometimes yes sometimes no. Sounds like he is a cousin of a big bang theory character. Some takes are "good" but so safe/brain-dead like the equivalent of making fun of selfie sticks or something. Like yeah this thing sucks but everyone already knows it and you're adding nothing by piling on.

He's stated multiple times that he is doing this for entertainment.  If you're taking any of it seriously in any capacity you should probably dial it back a bit.
