Drawing a ton of inspiration lately from Ray - the skater, the musician and the man.

Sometimes he walks his dog past my house, but Iím too much of a kook to say hi.
You can feel his good vibes as he walks by, seems like the raddest dude.

Probably the greatest dude in all of skateboarding.
This is not my SOTY. I'm telling my kids there was no SOTY for 2021

Love his Ban This part. Just so different.  I watched it again yesterday and realised he did a heelflip in it. Introducing jeans into skateboarding and always smiling.  He is my number 1.
They laughed when I told my friends that I was going to be a comedian.....well they are not laughing now!

Not as buttery as his early parts but Iíve got a soft spot for this one because I had the video and it captures a particular moment in skate time.

Just posted in the obscure vids thread, but thereís some early tech Barbee in this vid:
https://vimeo.com/19199370
including some nbds, or tricks that had hardly been done by anyone else at the time. My brain still melts when I realize that he can do no pop frontside shoves NOT off the nose !!!

Ray flowing through the BPSW era. Nice find.

Also Ray inspired me to develop my own film
