A bit of smack-talk on Pro Skaters.

Posted: 2012-12-31 in Uncategorized

Don’t get me wrong, I totally appreciate the advancements made by some of the greatest skaters EVER…guys like Cards, Mullen, DP, and many others skate GREAT!  I absolutely love watching the older guys skate.  They’re not the world’s greatest wordsmiths though.  Duane’s a mixed bag, sometime’s he’s great, other times he’s not.  Mullen is also a mixed bag.  In The Man Who Souled The World he was excellent, but in The Bones Brigade Documentary he let his emotions throw him off.  Cardiel is a guy who I’ve never seen sound coherent at all.  It’s all “Fuckin…shit…just…like…” followed by some really weird metaphor or simile for something.

Again, these guys could skate circles around me…but they’re awful public faces for skateboarding.
