I submit Mariano for greatest comeback.
[close]
Yeah fair call, he was my number two. But I'm sticking with Cards.
[close]

Eh. Marianos part in fully flaired is kinda gross and he has not put out much footage since then. Guy is more of a cock tease than a comeback. Freddy or Spanky is the greatest comeback because they actually do the damn thing.
[close]

Mariano's FF part is "gross"? Why? What does that even mean?
Dude dropped off the planet then came back out of nowhere with the final part in a stacked video.
By the time Pretty Sweet came out he was pushing 40, how much more do you demand from the guy?

I'm not saying you have to agree with me, but shitting on him is just corny.

I don't demand anything from him, but filming one part then not putting out anything else for a decade is not even close to a comeback, let alone the greatest comeback in the history of skating.

I rewatched it and it wasn't as bad as I remembered, but it's still far away from being a SOTY worthy part like so many people say it is.

Feeble to Smith is gross
Lipslide to krook is gross
Lipslide frontside flip is gross
Few other lipslide combos that were not favorable.

Respect for an older guy getting it, but he is far from a goat. Definitely could have been a goat if he stayed around with the right work ethic. Maybe you could argue he is a goat in the under 16 age bracket for his video days part. But after that he's just whatever.

What do we do with Smolik?

I can't think of a single category he GOATS.
Nothing he did on a skateboard hasn't been outshined 10 fold by countless others.
Even everything about his personality, like even his wacky whiteboy gangster personality, Jeremy Rogers took that vibe and ran way harder with it haha

Aww man this is sad but I have to agree. Dude was so ahead of his time but itís hard to do something as a tech skater that someone wonít come along and one up at some point.

I know he shared it with koston but he has a part in Pretty Sweet. He had nearly 10 minutes of footy between 5 years and 2 full lengths. Not on par with today's crazy output but not exactly doing nothing for a decade.

"Shared with Koston" is being very generous to Koston. Everyone forgets he put out another part a year after pretty sweet.

He had that On Video part in 2014 that was so good. Guy was never a footage machine- he only had two great parts in the 90s, and they were five years apart. So only occasionally putting out parts is a comeback as far as Guy is concerned.

Brandon Turner hasnít? I love Brandon. He does some of the grossest tricks- tre flip roast beef? Come on dude thatís so ugly. But heís like ďI like them and Iím going to keep doing themĒ. You gotta respect that, at least I do. One of my favorite skaters.

So Brandon Turner is the best at street flips to grab. I donít think anyone else is even in the conversation.

jon Allie is The Godfather/OG of that. Billy Marks definitely pushed unconventional tricks into handrails (halfcab smith, switch big heel boardslide) in a time when for most it was flip board/lip, 5050, crook, etc

Impossible - Braden Hoban
Front foot Impossible - Andy Anderson (even if you hate him, this is undeniable) Mouly wins that one

Malto would be a contender for best switch kickflip too.

This made me LOL.
he does meth now and sells it on El Cajon Blvd in San Diego. Wears a HUGE actual chain around his neck. Not a necklace chain. An actual chain around his neck that you would use to lock up a fence at a school. You can find him in back yard mini ramps doing nose stall to tail stall to shuv it tail stall revert out on the weekends. None of this is fabricated......

Lol! Point taken. No disrespect was meant. Perhaps Mullen or Daewon are manual GOATs among GOATs. But Dilo is maybe  a gnar manual GOAT? Not sure what you would call his approach but the shit is definitely unique IMO.
