Is there any little skate clip of him over the last, lets say, 13 years?

Did he completely stop?
Its crazy to me that someone with this status stops.
Then again he might have thought better to leave as a legend, when hes not into it that much anymore anyway.

I watched some of that raw footage that the Shortys filmer posts up and couldn't believe that he did the roof drop to boardslide from Fulfil the Dream three times!! Each clip had something wrong with- a glitch, a car driving past, janky filming etc

according to him he still skates all the time. I am assuming he has 0 desire to film

Ive always hoped theyd get Steve Olson (90s Foundation & Shortys). I skated with him several times in 90/91 and he was so good and truly original.

Didn't pay too much attention to his career but I'm a fan after reading this story.

Steve Olsons ender in Guilty.  Hands down the craziest trick I've seen in person.  Not only the makes, but the misses.  He would tightrope walk down the rail every time he missed.  Not only that, he pretty much focused his back on the last kink of the rail.  He was down, we all thought he was possibly paralyzed.  Then, I shit you not, he puts his hands together in a prayer like motion, starts kind of moving around in a circle on the ground, pops up to his feet, waxes his board and lands it next try.  We were in total shock.  Later I asked him what exactly happened back there with the slam and he casually replies, "I just had to heal myself."  They don't call him the crazy monk for no reason....

lil b and Olson CAME THROUGH for Guilty. Smolik and Baptista went pretty hard too. Muskas part is decent. If they just didnt do all that goofy acting stuff that video would have held up way better. That video got really hyped up and it was impossible to top fulfill the dream unfortuantely.

Saw this guy on 3rd street by Joan’s as my girlfriend and I were driving by.  I tried to explain who that was, and how wild it is to have a living legend just walking around looking like some random guy undetected, but that’s just skateboarding for you.
Hows my driving?  1-800-TAP-KOOK

I'm gonna gnar you a bunch just because you want to be kooked so I'll do the opposite, that will be funny
