Great video about Lee Ralph. I think his model was the 2nd or 3rd real board I had (which outs me as as gently caress)

The ender in this is loving absurd. Total THPS level poo poo. The best bit is that his buddies have the exact same expression and reaction that I did (and you probably will too)

It was cool to finally see some stuff focusing on AA's personality and outlook. He's like the borderline kook/awesome skater. almost gonzish if I dare say.

He's quite a character for sure.
I saw Rodney Mullen in a video a few years ago and was also taken aback at his wonderfully weird kooky personality
I'm the same age as him, so have watched him skate for maybe 35 years but have never heard him speak so it was quite a surprise.
Anderson has some of the same skate style now that I think about it. Both are amazingly original tho.

-e- Just remembered, it's Mullen's Ted talk. Rewatched it, he's great man.

drat Mullen, haha I'd never noticed but now I can't un-see it.
As for Barbee, he is so casual, even when at regular speed he looks so relaxed it's mesmerising.

I wish I'd had some of that slick style when I skated. I was self taught during the first boom in the 70s and I taught myself to push mongo. When I picked it up again in the 80s I couldn't be arsed relearning. It looked pretty bad.
It often confused people into thinking I was doing stuff switch/fakie or something, but nope, I was just a freak

-edit- Here's a guy explaining it in case anyone doesn't know what it is.
He looks way worse than I did though as he's not used to doing it. Also, what he's saying about foot poitioning isn't quite right. When you're done pushing, you can basically do a little jump into position as you stop pushing which is a fraction of a second at worse. That foot shuffling thing he's showing looks like a nightmare.

Coincidentally, when I'm fighting I'm southpaw too. (I fight about as often as I skate nowadays though)

poo poo I remember when all the boards were 30+x10. With the necessary bigger trucks and some 60mm wheels they weighed a loving ton lol.

Here's a video I though some of you guys would appreciate. noting totally outrageous, but it does have a few older dudes who are still ripping.
