#392: a box of newports and puma sweats








about the only other dude I know that can get away with smokin' in a flick... the foam rollin' ripper Rob Welsh.

cot damn. Welsh kinda made it important to make the pop outs and dismounts on your block tricks look good. i mean, dude has some serious "outs". nobody has a noseslide pop out like that guy.
another timeless ripper that i'm just hoping to see another full part from at some point, just cause of the great ones, you always want more.

Never saw that big spin tailslide ad before. Way ahead of its time. Very, very good.

Love Wu Welsh to death and love the 3rd Bass reference in the post title.

Dude is such a versatile skater it's a shame he fucked his knee up, he could have had a serious Lakai part if not for the injury.

Switch 360 flip the Brooklyn Banks barrier in 5 Flavors was bonkers and ahead of its time.

Nice 3rdBass/KMD quote Chopps

Sometimes I forget about Welsh. Dude's so damn good. The 3rd frame of the switch 360 flip is perfect and with a cig dangling in his mouth!

The word association with Clyde is funny as shit!

Whenever I think of Welsh...I remember this day and his giant pants.

this dude's footage is always a treat. From the clothes to the tricks, Wu Welsh has always had so much style. When I first saw Free Your Mind I definitely got stoked on camouflage hats all over again.

rob welsh has always been a favorite but dammit, after reading that clyde singleton article, i have to wonder how someone could be so damn ignorant. seriously, just cause you're black, doesn't make it okay to say those sorts of things i,e, "niggerness". jeez.

When I saw the title of this post, the first thing I thought was "Welsh"

Skating was radder before it was taken over by wiggers.

chops said...

well put anon1, its hard to get stoked on noseslides but when they look as good as welsh's, its hard not to.

yeah skate nazi, i was looking forward to a longer part as well but what he did have in there was straight heat.

glad my "gasface" reference didn't go unnoticed. quite comforting actually.

classic shit, petunia

don't know what to tell you David... that's kind of Clyde's schtick.

anonymous3... is that you, bill danforth?

dedleg said...

Haha yeah, sick title, and so perfect for Welsh. I knew who this post was about before I even saw a photo.
