Is there a medical reason for Jeff Deschares lack of pop
« on: July 02, 2022, 01:05:37 AM »
I'm generally curious I heard he has some sort of genetic disorder does he have no fast twitch muscle ?

What a hilarious question. Had to look him up. Seems like he was once too weak to flip his board on flat, so he started flipping stuff off drops/stairs for more time - but never grew out of it.

I had this mentality when I was 12 of 13, kickflipped off something before I could do it on flat because I was a weakling.

Yeah it's a rare genetic condition known as "97 pound weakling".... There is hope though.

I'm genuinely confused why someone wanted to be the next Nate Sherwood but without pop

Yeah, that's how his skating struck me too. For the ridiculously hard flip tricks he does and even the more simple ones, the way he executes them makes his lands look like flukes and not in a good way.

I'm not going to go back and watch his parts to check but I think he has the classic carpet board/trampoline board problem where they don't pop that tail and just hoof the shit out of the board and land on it again. Not a classic pop flick catch land

I actually watched a video where he explains his reasoning and you're not gonna believe how ridiculous it is:

He once accidentally stepped off the tail of his board and fell, so now he puts his foot as close to the bolts as possible.
I wouldn't have any pop either if I'd use his weird as fuck foot stance.

The source is this video, or part 2 or 3 of it. I really don't want to watch dan corrigan in order to confirm which one it is.

some of his earliest YouTube videos are of him skating an ankle high flat bar in his driveway, but he was doing some pretty crazy technical tricks on it. during his formative skateboarding years he had no reason to develop the technique to get onto or over anything with any legitimate height.

99% sure this is why he skates the way he does.

Respect to Jeff for doing his own thing, but he still looks awful on a skateboard and probably can't kickflip a parking block.

Someone on here many years ago said he has the style of a kid who grew up skating a tiny garage and that's what I always think of when I see him

I saw your mom do a ollie to cooch drop straight down the big black pole, it was gnarly. she defiantly shut that shit down

Is lack of awareness a medical condition?

I get that not everyone gets it in relation to skateboarding but this dude has no fucking clue.

It's this video, around 12:30 mark.

Oof though, what a douche of an interviewer and what a way to do flip tricks...
Oh, the places you'll go.

I get it to a degree, I avoided boardslides for nearly a year after credit-carding myself badly on one. However, there's almost always a chance of your back foot slipping off no matter what you're doing.

Im guessing this might be an unpopular opinion around here but I like jeff, he definitely has a different (sometimes obscure) way of looking at things, I like the way he skates, its different than the norm but I think its pretty enjoyable to watch and its refreshing imo that he does things his own unique way.I talk to Jeff every now and then and hes a good dude imo.. Hes just dosent have your standard skateboarder personality I guess,,but hes always came off as a chill dude to me.

Watched the video, the answer to the og question is mental retardation.  No further research necessary.  This guy should never have progressed past the depths of youtube obscurity.  I suppose our morbid curiosity is to blame. We must do better collectively. Power to the people.
