Tim Brauch -RIP- , he totally destroyed the skatepark where the girl & chocolate team (late 90ís) among other famous skaters like Rob Welsh didnít even dare to drop in.

Two skaters for totally different reasons:

Paul Shier turned up to Stoner Plaza when I was visiting America. Once he stepped on his board he didn't get off it once. Just cruied around the whole park doing tricks and not trying anything more than once. Made skating look so fun and effortless.

Yuri Faccini. Was at Sants and he was battling nollie FS 180 to switch FS crook on the top of the big bench. It was insane to see him jumping that high into that trick. He got it eventually and it was unreal.

Pj used to skate In the parking lot across the street from house a few years back. When ever heíd show up Iíd just sit down and watch. Heís also kinda a dick in the sense heíll see whatever youíre trying and do it perfectly 10 times in a row.

Prime 2005 Salabanzi was the craziest I've seen, and that's even after seeing Koston, Ishod, Busennitz, and Appleyard during that time. It was like seeing Luan's skating combined with Chris Joslin's, plus better transition skills.

Used to go to Modern skatepark in Grand Rapids back around í04, Kalis used to show up once in a while and destroy the place. Bigspin back tails were what he would be trying a bunch, it was awesome watching him.

This is going to reflect how old I am but Phil Shao. Had a ramp at my house when I was young and he was over at my house at least a few times a week. I have tons of old pics and video that I would share but I can't upload anything here for some reason.  Anyways hands down the most impressive skateboarder I've seen in person.  He could probably have filmed a legit part in under a month.

Is this your ramp?

Pretty easy - itís Ishod. Heís incredible. Heís probably the best skateboarder to ever live. He does it all and he doesnít stop.

Sleeper mention Iíve seen Tore Bevivino from the sabotage videos skate a couple times like over 10 years ago and I just watched didnít even skate because I couldnít believe someone would be that good.
[close]

So every comp he's ever in the commentators are like, "holy fuckin' shit you should've seen Ishod in practice for the last 5 hours" - has anyone ever filmed this? Obviously it's just skatepark footage, but I'd like to see it.

go check out Jason Rothmeyers story right now. its 7 or 8 slides of ishod right now in that japan shit.

If you dont make it in time, get some pop corn, have a seat and sit back and watch his obtuse moments. start it at 2:41 to about.....11:15 to watch him in his mode. you will notice that he ends up being the only one skating the demos and everyone in the park, including his team mates are just in awe of how good he is and how long he doesnt stop.

Ishod is the one. hes Neo.

I've seen Jamie Owens and Ronnie Creager skate curbs.
It's one thing when you see someone that's been skating that spot as a local and another one as a pro.

And for more niche guys, Heavey Metal Chuck is wild to see in person. Dude has a ton of pop.
CurbKiller is gnarly, seeing him skate curbs makes me want to sit down and watch.
Nothing I do deserves more than an iphone camera.

Right after real sorry came out, I was at the Santa Monica gaps and ledges and PJ Ladd came by himself. We sessioned for about an hour where he didnít miss anything, I was landing tricks, and we didnít say a single word to one another until I landed a move after him and he said, ďwe just did doublesĒ.

Watched Luan pull up, film a line for extremely sorry and a throwaway line in about 5 minutes then leave because sprinklers turned onÖthe line where he 360 flip noseslides the table off a bump.

Just over the years watching him in parks and spots while he was growing up - Franky villani.

There was a local guy from around here that was real good that Iíll throw out thereÖ Gonzo Hernandez.


Gonzo's skill used to be unreal, so bummed we didn't get to see him blow up.

A few months ago I went to a taco place late at night with my girlfriend. As we walked in there was a dude sitting by the entrance asking for spare change, i didn't bat an eye and just walked by as its pretty standard for most taco places in Santa Ana. While I was sitting waiting for my food I noticed Gonzo walk in with a backpack on, grabbed a drink and walked right out. I mentioned to my girlfriend how good he was and how he was a local legend and she replied "that was the guy asking us for change out front?". That caught me fully off guard and kinda shocked me. Wherever he is, i hope he's getting by and doing better

Rick McCrank at Burnside circa The End my first time dropping acid. I remember the pure feeling of speed and grace and time bending around him doing a handplant in a way that felt like he was reaching into the earth and conjuring a heron spirit perching on a branch.

Thank you so much for posting this. The park shown from 3:40 to 8:10 is my local indoor and people still talk about that outing many years later. Now I know why. Nothing else I've seen go down there even comes close, and I saw a Flip demo in '03 there.
Doesn't matter what pants you got on at all.

Ishod, Jamie Foy, Shane O'neill, Oskar Rozenberg. The way they make skateboarding look so effortless and easy is just jaw dropping. CPH Open is a beautiful thing to witness. Pros just having fun on the board.

When I was a kid, ben hatchell would skate my local contest series in southern MD.

Saw him doing 540s in the gnarly ass deep of my home park.

Shit was sick

Is it a prerequisite of these demos to play the most dogshit music of all time? Good god man.

Rodrigo TX in an Adidas demo. There was a lot of goods like Heitor, Lucas, Donelly etc.

But Tx just crushed it in hard obstacles.
