Careers that petered/flamed out
« on: February 08, 2024, 12:12:53 PM »
The caleb barnett discussion got me thinking about other guys you were high on when they first came on the scene and than ultimately just flamed out  and became a bit of a bust

Jake donnelly for mine came out on fire in since day one, had that buffalo part 10 years ago, and a shared part in away days, and more or less nothing since, barely on any of the Real or addidas trips, he doesnt have a real board out at the moment, and from what i can tell hasn't had a board since early 2022...

Would have liked to see more from Angel Ramirez, and as long as we are talking early mid 2000s F I would have liked to see Abdias Rivera go pro after being am for them for years.

Did Hoyle do this or have I just been missing things.

And does Forrest Edward’s count? Can you even technically "flame out" if all of your go-to tricks are strictly hetero?

Similarly, cam we say BA flamed out but in the most fabulous way possible?

Strange call, I'm always hyped for more Pete. He's had pretty consistent AH/Grimple boards in the recent past. Almost certainly out of his prime, but dude's gotta be pushing 50 at least

WAIT

I'm fucking dumb. good one!

Im assuming you mean Kenny Hoyle. I got the impression it was bad luck mixed with bad timing. He had some bad ankle injury that he had surgery on and while he was out Kayo dumped Expedition and he was left high and dry. I hope he still skates, he was great on the board

Enzo Cautela

I was stoked when I heard about him on KOTR.

Even stoked when he finally went pro for Enjoi.

Then it felt like everything started to slow up.

Then it really felt like that after he got the boot from Enjoi.

Going more current, has Provost done much after getting on Creature a couple years ago?

I surfed for split when Colin was on the team as a kid and he also grew up down two doors down from my wife all I can say was he was under a intense amount of pressure from his dad and sponsors at a young age none of the drinking surprise’s me, but he was always humble and kind.

Ah that’s a bummer to hear. Yeah Kenny Hoyle was fantastic.

Actually if you think about - an easier thread might be who makes it past the 5 year pro mark. Don’t aspire to be pro kids.

Raven Tershy came to mind the other day when I saw a chocolate deck in a recent drop. Wonder what it takes to get your name taken of a board over there

Nah he had a long a fruitful career with a second (Mystery) and third (Cliche) wing, knew it was time to hang it up.

Beat up a homeless person while filming it or give a bunch of girls genital herpes. Can't remember anyone else that's ever gotten the boot from the Crail camp.
