Props for mentioning Puleo and Drake Jones. Definitely a couple of dope skateboarders. Plus Photosynthesis is one of the best videos of all time.

A couple other blasts from the past:

-Lennie Kirk

-Pontus Alv (Mad Circle flavor)

-Rick Jaramillo

-Jerry Fowler

-SergeTrudnowski

-Kris Markovich

-Charlie Wilkins

-Matt Hensley (Dopest 360's)

Oooo... You seen that new Pontus Alv vid? Strongest of the Strange, serious art fag stuff but the skating in it is brilliant, and Scott Bourne also kills it in Strongest of the Strange. I think he's still on Unbelievers right now?

Another one... Ocean Howell anybody.. Ocean still kills it in the new iPath promo, which is an awesome vid and free!

Current set-up:

The Harmony 8.0(I like to feel my board.. for all of you that have heard of Dist.One the Harmony are his board company)

Indys... how can you ride anything else haha, Indy hardcore

Swiss... what else

54mm Spitfires

Pair of Lakai Neaux Diminions

Like Cheaps set up a lot! DLX wood is always good, but I buy all that local crap.

Heh, I'm posting a lot more about skateboarding than anything else, more absorb the knowledge elsewhere.

how long did it take everyone here to land there first kickflip? there's something so humiliating about trying to learn to kickflip at 27, yet i persist

^^^^

Kickflips were hard for me at first. I could do heelflips and varial flips before i really had kickflips down. I think it took me a few weeks to actually land one, but it took months maybe a year to get them down consistent and good looking. Some tricks come easier than others, but it's all about skating alot and being comfortable on your board..I mean tricks will come to you when your ready to land them. You gotta fully commit to ride away.. 60%mental, 40% physical( old skate company, that i doubt anyone remembers, but i use that saying alot when i'm teaching lessons). Anyway good luck, and keep on it you'll get it dialed in no time...

I got heelflips before kickflips as well. In my mind, I couldn't even imagine getting the spin for a heelflip, but once I tried it, it came sort of naturally. Kickflips have always been a bitch though; even to this day I can't land them "nicely".

Ooo hope the afterparty is a good one Cheap... skatemums galore? report back immediately haha

Fully Flared is gonna be off the hook, seriously how could it not be with Mariano, Carroll, Jensen, Brady, Puig, JB Gillet, Koston list is too good.. but as for Plan B, new Plan B aint got shit on old Plan B (Duffy just isn't the same) and it's lost a bit of it's heart. Seriously though putting Robbie Williams as the music to your trailer? baddd baddd idea

Kickflips took me 2 fucking years. I guess I just wasn't truly committed to landing them or I was just doing something really fucking wrong. Oh well, that was 3 years ago and I've got pretty decent ones now...

I'm super psyched for Fully Flared. Lakai has an insane team. I heard MJ has a looooooong part (we're talkin like 20 minutes).

I haven't seen the Plan B promo yet. Their team is pretty solid. I'm not psyched for Shecklers part. Kids a dick. Wennings a dick in person too. But I like his skating. So I'm psyched for his part.

I swear, Florida is the best place to live if you skate on the east coast. Between the Tampa Am, Kona, and the weather..ugh makes me mad.

By the way, where do you guys usually skate? I've been almost primarily street intill I found this place: http://www.jayrox.com/glory_days.htm

Skating a bowl for the first time is amazing.

Element is so terrible. I remember when they used to be good in the late 90's, Element was all I rode. Then they got beyond wack.
