Big boys on their toys
« on: Today at 01:23:02 PM »
I knew this dude was big, but 230 and 6’3”?!

I know there’s some other skaters on the thicker side, but I gotta think this is the heaviest pro skater due to height and build.


Anyone ever seen any pros with a listed weight in this range?

This guy’s mom works with my best friend. That’s all I got for this thread.
This is not my SOTY. I'm telling my kids there was no SOTY for 2021

his whole vibe makes so much more sense knowing he's christian (not saying it's negative, just there's a vibe)

This dude has never filmed a legit part. He’s strictly a contest skater. That’s crazy in 2024.

He has “it”. He was skating like a grown man at 12.

Front lip Hollywood High. 12 years old.

Fuck that shit, us Canadians are not claiming this dude.  Moved to the States at 4yo before ever skateboarding, moved to Cali at 8!?  Nah he’s all yours.  Between 2cents and Papa Burger our contest squad is embarrassing enough.

I'm 6'4 180lbs. Not there yet, but I was 170lbs two years ago.
Check back with me in 10 years and I might have him beat...of course, I won't be built like a linebacker...probably more like Grimace from McDonald's.
