Smolik was in the game for like 30 years 🤔

I’ll say Jeremiah Vance, Element was talking him up non stop then he vanished in like a year.

Good one

He used to get mad coverage 02-04 and then nothing. He was a stair/rail guy when it was cool for every up and comer to be a stair/rail guy. I don’t think he turned pro. For him to drop off like that without picking up a sponsor means he prolly quit. Never heard anything bad or about him since then.

He’s a high-level BJJ black belt that runs a succesful gym and competes from time to time.

On Ernie Torres’s bunt he said Ramondetta basically went awol.

I mean he deserves to do whatever he wants, he earned it. He was Real’s gnarliest dude for about eight years. Real even ran an ad with no photo, all text just thanking him for his service - and this was during his active prime. btw I know the OP was just making a joke on the name but I wanted to give Ramondetta the credit he deserves while we’re talking about him

I thought he left the industry to head back home to settle some family stuff?

I thought I read something on here a while back that Ramondetta got into real estate and made a killing off that, then decided to just dead the industry entirely. His insta is cool to keep up with, he's skating exactly like I do when I get off work in his recent posts.

Lots of great answers in this thread of names I used to see a lot, especially in old mags.

What the hell happened to T Spliff?? He was on fire then disappeared, then had like a 3 day resurgence then disappeared again?

Cole Wilson, Dyson Ramones, Kenny Hoyle, Andre De Silva, ANDREW POTT.
I think with T Spliff he just piled out from what I remember, which if you pile out too hard for Foundation then maybe you really are the problem. Out of all the ShepDawgs I thought he’d be the one to have the most impact.

This is more of a "where did they go" post…what happened to Gailea Momolu? My memory is telling me there was some major injury, but I misremember a lot of stuff.

T-Spliff moved to SF started skating with the GX dudes and then came back to north county had a little freak out filming with Buya and then no clue what he's been up to since

What a time , she came in actually ripped , got on real flow for a bit and then just said fuck it and we’ve never seen her again. Makes you wonder if Reynolds ever actually had a kid.

She was on on real...whats crazy to me is that i'd still take her career over kelly harts skate career lol. She had name/face on a real board and Kelly got one pro model on expedition, after already being booted once, and turning pro when everyone else had quit already..lol

Jackson pilz is another one....thought he was a soty calibre skater when he dominated on kotr

Dang, never realized Forrest switch flipped Wallenberg, and so good, too.

All add: Josiah Gatlyn (berries wonder boy), Dyson Ramones, Mike Hastie, Jonathan Pierce (though maybe he didn’t get the chance he deserved in the first place), John Lupfer, Zach Wagner (yoga dude on 2000’s Stereo), Andrew Pearl (mental health) and Luke Crocker (Krooked).

What’s crazy about  this list and just that late 2000s era in general is how many of those names were on emericas sponsor me tape section of their website. Like who ever at emerica was doing that really could pick em out early cause this had to be around 2005 -whenever the video iPods and video “podcasts” came out - and then like 3-5 years you’d see them getting on a team like abdias Rivera, Dyson, Josiah. There was Richmond kid I think who got on slave for a bit that wasn’t pat burke.

Tyshawn is the only one from that group of NATIVE NYC kids that made it.

Black Dave? Is a rapper now
Luis Tolentino? Broke the Ollie record and is now forking for UPS. He shoulda moved to Cali for a bit.
