Jesus Rick is still absolutely killing it. If I didn't know who he was and watched this there's no way in hell I'd think he was 46. Looks like he's still having a ton of fun too.

McCrank is still so good. Has it ever been explained why he pretty much disappeared from skateboarding at the height of his popularity after Menikmati and Yeah Right? Fatherhood?

Did he?   I just assumed his sponsors weren’t putting out videos aside from some minor eS works he had parts in

He had the eSpecial part but that whole video felt kind of lost. Maybe I'm imagining it but it felt like he stepped back for around a decade until pretty recently

I feel the same, he was easily on some Koston-popularity-level and disappeared. I felt, like he quit skateboarding, without a serious injury.

mccrank made shows for vice in the meantime like post radical and abandoned, there was always little bits of footage here and there, tho. he skated weird spots in the abandoned series in pretty much every episode. i think family is the other reason he stepped back a bit. i think especial might have been his last real part he had in a video. would be sick to have him film a little part again, but this pretty much counts.

I thought some pretty serious injuries were involved as well as a decent amount of McCrank footage not being used in Pretty Sweet since the focus was on the younger skaters? Maybe I was misinformed about that but dude was certainly the PS tour MVP and has continued to steady slay it.

Today is Zane Timpson's birthday RIP and Independent posted this clip. I think the camera angle doesn't really show how psycho that trick is. That white bank looks steep as fuck.

Maybe because I am in Canada but he never dropped off my radar the entire time.

Acted in a movie in 2006
éS: éSpecial (2007)

Viceland TV: Post Radical - Rick McCrank takes viewers on an exploration of skateboarding's varied subcultures.
Girl Skateboards "Doll" (2018)

Keep in mind he also absolutely KILLED it on the beauty and the beast tours. Looks like he was a single dad as well so i imagine the amount of travelling and work he has done really took a toll on his relationship with his wife. He also owned a skate shop, and a wheel company. You have to also remember, only recently do we get to see a lot of footage of older guys. It was very rare for a company to keep legacy pros at the forefront until the instagram era. pretty clear he has been skating the entire time. such a rad dude , one of the best to ever do it on so many levels. had a pro board for birdhouse and girl at the same time haha

I think he was going for a 360 flip one foot post-catch like he did with a kickflip last year.

I had to look really closely to spot the kid. He‘s alright. Tyshawn didn‘t get that close to him.
