Wade D best ledge skater of all time?
« on: May 21, 2022, 02:13:48 AM »
Been perusing through a lot of his Instagram compilations especially, as well as parts. Itís obviously an impossible thing to debate, but I feel as though he might be the ledge goat.

I canít think of anyone whoís done a bigger variety of ledge tricks honestly. Often mirrored also just for the fuck of it. Seems like an endless supply and he can obviously do any trick he wants. Thereís also such a vast variety and not much repetition which is what separates him from a lot of other ledge skating greats.

Not to mention the execution. Crazy fast precise flick with basically zero effort. Truly a once in a generation talent and a pleasure to watch.

Shane might be the most technically proficient of all time.  Skill and style combination though - AVE or Wenning for me

Been perusing through a lot of his Instagram compilations especially, as well as parts. It’s obviously an impossible thing to debate, but I feel as though he might be the ledge goat.

I can’t think of anyone who’s done a bigger variety of ledge tricks honestly. Often mirrored also just for the fuck of it. Seems like an endless supply and he can obviously do any trick he wants. There’s also such a vast variety and not much repetition which is what separates him from a lot of other ledge skating greats.

I can appreciate the fanboy-ism here.  Out side of this, you deserve to be strapped to a chair and forced to watch videos starting with mouse up thru the most recent sour solution III.  Your perspective must and will change.

In the paraphrased words of the great Pat Beverly, “delete the app, throw your phone away, retire from the sport, and evaluate your life.”

Edit.  I would add that Wade would not crack the top 10 historically.

If style factors into the equation, then Wade D won skateboarding fifteen years ago already.

Fred Gall

Id like to throw Tim O Connor In there. He was one of my favorite ledge styles. Backside flip fakie 5 oh pop out.

So fire.

Pj wins I think but I’d like to mention David Milliken. I feel like if you luv ledges you should be told about D Milli.

Kalis. Henry.

Tiago obviously. Stevie. Ave. Umm… Chris Roberts…

I’ll try to think of more later 

(These are all based more on style than bag o tricks)

Iíve been a skate nerd since weíll before mouse came out so youíre barking up the wrong tree there.

Appreciate all the responses! Some good ones in there for sure. Iím still sticking with Wade though, mainly based on the massive variety of tricks over the past 20 years.

Agree.  There is an argument to be made that heís not even the best Canadian ledge skater.  Bobby D got it if you ask me.

Jesus Fernandez has done some pretty bonkers ledgework.
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.
