his transworld part and his shared birdhouse partds were soooo good
Sorry, sometimes I get overly defensive on that point.

dont forget his sight unseen part..... hammers with amazing style, especially that last tailslide that he came out regular....

i had 2 pairs of his emerica shoes.... the ones that looked like space boots..... they lasted forever but the board feel was terrible....

I had a pair in black and white and they looked like space shuttles but skated good. Ive always loved his skating since I saw The End, I thought the rest of that video was shit though besides Heath and Reynolds.

Always a favorite, but at the same time I kind of forget about him sometimes, so when I see some coverage  I get soooo stoked on him. One of the gnarliest with one of the best styles.

i think thats actually in the old animated gif night thread.

That old footage of heath as a kid with josh beagle is really cool.  When he goes to a bar in the ghetto and all that.

sight unseen is basically one of the best videos of all time, with amazing skating contributed by cardiel, henry sanchez, dustin dollin and kirchart.... 

Kircharts tailslides to regular on rails were what inspired me to learn tailslides..... to come out fakie from a tailslide is easy but to turn it back regular is hard and just looks way better....

lets hope kircharts next part is not his last....

the thing about heath is, he skates gnarly as fuck, awesome style, always one upping himself, and he's had longevity in the gnarly game. Lots of people come out of the gates droppin hammers and burn out real quick, heath jus tdoes it, forever, at night.

One of my favourites too, Heath's part is so rad, hes skates such gnarly shit and destroys everything. Probably one of the sickest skaters out there.

his switch flip manual on top of a picnic bench going mach ten is insane.  mosaic.  also the line with a sw nosegrind 180 out into slowmotion and then gp to lipslide the rail is great.

I'm waiting for his next big part ... does anyone have some news about that ??

Such a raw skater, one of the most stylish hammer throwing skaters ever.

I still watch his sight unseen part all the time, that whole vid is fuckin sick, minus tosh's part (im sorry but the music alone for tosh's part made it suck)

Yeah Heath's great, that shared part with Jeremy Klein is one of my favorites ever.

Slightly interesting side note, Panda Bear from Animal Collective has said that Heath's part in Sight Unseen was his favorite part ever. It's cool to know that somebody like that is not only into skating, but has good taste in it as well.
