Pro Skaters everyone likes but you dislike

For some reason I just don't fw Franky Villani, im sure hes a cool dude but watching him skate pisses me off, same thing with Foy.

 I know Nyjah's the best any way you look at it- like the richest and wins the most- but sometimes I wish he was somehow even better.

I agree with all these choices. With Jolson and Dilo, itís probably because they have terrible fashion sense and aesthetics, only slightly better than Ryan Decenzo. Basically like a tween 2000s skater that never grew out of their clothing choices.

Regarding Foy, itís his Red Bull hat and simultaneously super long and balding hair. He also has very questionable clothing and doesnít eat vegetables, which is just gross.

Regarding Villani, heís not as bad as all these others, but he just tries too hard to be unique while also being on Primitive, which is one of my least favorite of the successful brands.

I know I'll probably get a lot of flack for this but CK1. Ever since the car crash I just never liked him. I think the industry in general gave him a pass. I think he should have been in jail for much longer.

I strongly dislike watching people skate that look like they have zero fun or even kind of hate doing it. Yuto is a great example, but also basically everyone with the fake gangster tough guy steeze. Make having emotions cool again

Mango and Jalba. It's not that I don't like them as people, they seem cool. I just don't enjoy their styles of skating. Especially Jesse, Chris is alright
What you're doing is like if I made a thread that was about monster trucks and everyone started saying "Uh, just get a bicycle". I just wanna know how you guys wash your asses

Newer skater - I donít really get the hype around Caleb Barnett.  Iíve listened to his Bunt interview and he seems like a cool guy but thereís nothing that outstanding about his footage to me.

Older skater - Iíve never been a Koston fan.  Iím too young for the earlier 90ís Koston (I picked up following him around Menikmati probably).  I obviously recognize that Koston is insanely talented but his skating has never really been that exciting or raw to me despite his talent level.

Swan Pablo looks a stick bug.

I also really dislike the style of tech thats like a crazy flip trick into an extremely short grind. I feel like the grind is supposed to be the trick, so just tapping your truck on the ledge feels like cheating. Sebo does this a lot. So does Stephen Lawyer.

I hate to say it but I fucking hate his pants and Iíd probably really like him as a skater if he wore different pants.

In the modern era: Yuto and Shane OíNeill. Their both immensely talented and smooth. But the skating almost looks strangely robotic.

Yuto has secret transition skills though.

In the past: Koston for sure. I remember the industry pushing Koston so hard and he was absolutely crushing, but he was never my guy.

I was always more stoked to see McCrank skate.

Justin Henry is gross. The stiff bow legged style seems to be popular these days for reasons I canít wrap my mind around. Shit wouldnít fly in the 90s.

I guess Iím an out of touch old man.

I will go with Gonz.  Yep. 

Any of the cariuma guys especially the flip in flip out dude. Gustavo Rubeio or whatever.

I used to not like Tom Knox and now he is among my favorites.

Iím having a really hard time with short skaters.   Low center of gravity skating. Zion is an example.  Heís probably not short but skates like it.  Even tho he is absolutely incredible.  Iím 6í1í which I consider pretty normal height I guess. 

Donít care for the robot skaters either.  Shane and many of the new Asian cats in the contest.

Too techy is wack AF too.  Laser flip nose grind nollie tre out. Garbage.

Iíve said it once before here, but Gustav Tonnessen. Heís obviously amazing and doesnít need my approval, but his footage doesnít do anything for me. No offense to those who like him, and there are tons.

Huh? You can tell he's short by looking at him
