Heís only 21 and has been hurt for a year and a half, what can we expect?

He just had a samba colorway and is still sponsored by Supreme. Thatís not quite petered/flamed out. I agree Violet wasnít the smartest move but Iím sure he could smoke weed every day and post instagram clips for years to come and still be sponsored.

Marisa Del Santo. Jamie messed up not turning her pro

Ran into her at the bins out here in Colorado, she sells vintage and spins records now, saw her spin once with my homie, good tunes

My band was going through Denver about a year and a half ago and we ended up playing with her band (she plays bass). We chatted for a bit and she was super chill and friendly.

Sky Siljieg

Dude was ripping bowls in the PNW and making a name for himself, one if the first of the newer generation to get really creative before it was cool.

He was a crowd favorite at the Combi bowl contests with some rad lines. Nothing that would have won, but just putting it out there that there are other ways to rip a bowl.

Sponsored by Lib Tech, which maybe held him back in some ways but apparently were able to give him a decent hook-up from the snowboard money.

Anyways, I heard a bit of his backstory, and itís a shame that he got into the drug culture and fell out of skating, right when that style of skating was starting to get noticed. And could have gotten big.

 His riding really made me smile.

That's sad to hear, I was actually wondering the other day what had become of him, the guy had some serious talent.

Wow such a good deep cut name to mention. Used to skate with him in a lot of the PNW contest circuits and always wondered what happened to him

What happened to Justen Drysen? Huf part then gone.

yes he was pretty hyped a few years ago. he had a small part in that obscure board brand that Antwuan dixon rides for last year. it wasn't any good and he was filmed horrible. so he puts out stuff. it looked like the newer stuff trevor colden had put out. so not very high quality clips.

Damn shame indeed. His and Nolan Johnsonís styles were kinda similiar but Skyís was a bit surfier (or hippier?). Also those Lib Tech parts are great but I think one of them is long gone from the internet for some reason.

Marisa Del Santo. Jamie messed up not turning her pro

Per Jamie and Marissa herself: He offered her a pro board and she turned it down because the had more fun skating as a hobby with her friends and didn't want the pressure to skate stuff she didn't want to and to have to move to California long term.

Personally, I think she'd still be in skating if she rode for Baker, Foundation or Toy Machine with a more chill owner.

Yeah I always kinda got the impression it wasn't just "going pro" that was off-putting to her, at the time it was more "going pro for Zero" being the issue.
Maybe I read into it too much, but it seems like she made an informed decision; she would have already had a degree of familiarity with Jamie's...management style what with being on the team and filming for one of their full-lengths.

Her Strange World part is still great and her skating has always been enjoyable to watch.

There's a Jenkem interview with her a couple years ago where she says exactly that. She specifically mentions how Jamie would make her go back and film tricks if he felt they could be done better or look better from a different angle. Then she would go back and do it again to find out the clip didn't make it into the video. I think naturally, she was like "if this is what it takes to be pro, then I don't want to be pro."

I think timing also wasn't her friend either. She was basically the only prominent woman in the industry in the time period between Elissa Steamer's and Leticia Bufoni's peaks. Back then, skate companies didn't really know how to market women skateboarders, so Marissa was set to the standards of her fellow male riders.

Of all grief JT gets, he certainly pushed and Marisa to skate to a level weíve not seen since from woman skaters. Her strange world part showed she could hang with the big dogs. If she felt she didnít want to be pushed and pressured into that style of skating I totally agree and understand. She definitely would have flourished in the skate world even further had she came through a couple years later or obviously on a more mellow team. Regardless she ripped.

Chi suda, chi lotta, chi mangia una volta,
Chi gli manca la casa, chi vive da solo,
Chi trova scontato, chi come ha trovato...

Truman Hooker
[close]

This name should never be forgotten.

His career/skating? Give or take. But the name? Oh lawd.

Truman's the man. Used to film with him a ton back in the day. His sister's name is Alli Hooker. The True Man Hooker and Alley Hooker. Incredible stuff.

What about Mike Wright, the U.K. one:

Never really knew why he didnít get on a US team. Back in the day he was all over the magazines in the U.K. and seemed to possess the trifecta of: being really good, likeable and still very young. Everyone who saw him skate irl, whether up north or around the country, was blown away.

I stepped away from skating for a bit and when I came back I expected he wouldíve blown up properly (in an international sense) but it didnít seem to happen.
