I have never heard of FTP but I would love to have a antwuan board for my wall If the graphic is right.

I was 15 when he came out of nowhere and i was highly influenced by his skating (as so many others). Seeing him sober and back on the board is the greatest news in the Skateboarding world for me.

Second that, and not just clips but gold. Does he have a board sponsor at the moment? Would cop product to support. Criminal if no, and someone fucking sort him out.

Imagine he got back on baker/deathwish? I know it wonít happen, but I can dream right?

I mean probably not, but if there was a brand that would do it I can see it being Baker. Who knows what that relationship is like after all these years.

How old is Antwan? Early 30ís? Would be great to see him have a comeback story similar to Guys. Clearly he still has the style and abilities.
I think he's somewhere between 33-35. Guy was still relatively young when he came back. I think Guy was like 27 or so when he started filming for Fully Flared and maybe around 30 when it dropped. While, Guy had like an 11 year gap between full parts, he was pretty young when Mouse dropped. Would love to see Antwuan back with a full part though. An absolute style god.

If there is really NO chance for him to get back on baker/deathwish, PRod should scoop his ass up for primitive. Would be a pretty wild move, but i think it could work. PRod's work ethic/mindset could really mesh well with his sobriety if he's interested in pushing his skating again.

Guys on FTP, which is arguably a better spot than Baker dependant on how they treat their people. FTP is insanely popular with the 14-25 age demo.

Heís actually posted a few really sick classic Antwuan style street clips. Like a perfect nollie heel down a 10 or so stair set. Hopefully he putting a part together. Love to see it.

If he dropped one full part a year of him just cruising around doing his standard tricks I'd eagerly await it's drop and throw a big watch party with all the homies every time forever.

That frontside flip was as good as a frontside flip can be.

Back when I first started coming on slap was when Supra was starting and Antwuan was on es.
Then there was a thread on here with him wearing a Supra shirt
Es made an animated gif where a soup can came down on Antwuan, covering him up in the team shot, and it said Later Twuan
I think about that way too much
Love Antwuan

No, i completely understand that. I just dont respect them as a legit skateboard brand, they seem more like a streetwear hypebeast thing to me. Maybe im just old and out of touch though idk. W/e the reason i have way more faith in PRod to take care of twuan in this second wind of his career.
.....Nah

this thread is the antidote to that continuous bummer it is to see Bam keep slipping in that endless thread.

Stoked for Antwuan!

(My mind is blown that Guy wasn't older in Fully Flared - damn he started young, if he was only 31, when that came out!)

Absolute style legend. If I could skate like someone, Antwuan would be my top 3 choice.

Wishing Antwuan the best , this just makes me happy. I remember when he was such a larger than life skater with his part in Baker 3 and that effortless style. If he drops one more part and it's even 60 percent of his Baker 3 part.... we might get the You Got Mail ending for twuan that us dreamers had our fingers crossed for. So many skaters die from drugs, it's just rad when a skater overcomes his demons.

Congratulations Antwuan!!!!

Awesome to see.

His style is up there with classic Penny.

I love this story so much & hope it maintains its trajectory.
I wanna go to the top of the highest nearby hill & shout from the top, ďTwaun, Twaun, Twaun!!!Ē
Gotta show some apreesh to the original hands-down god.

I wanna play you in a game of SKATE for the right to continue talking shit on me.  You think you got me?

One of the only pros I follow. His clips are always a treat. I donít throw the term goat around ever, but he is one of the best to ever grace a board. Congrats on 2 years twuan!
