Stoked on that last photo, too.

This made my day! I remember seeing, i think it was two years ago, TNT do this insane back tail in this bowl in Billings, Montana. I think its in an issue of Thrasher, watching him skate in person will blow your mind!

watching this dude skate is unreal. we have the most fucked vert wall at my park in Reno, NV, tony gets out of the van, rolls up it and rolls right back in like its nothing. still the gnarliest thing i've seen at our local park to this day. like phelps said "he'll go to your park, and he'll blow your fucking joint out."

TNT rules----I think he really was (with Drehobl maybe) one of the guys who brought back being an all-terrain ripper---which thankfully a lot of the best pro kids are nowadays. Always enjoy watching a skater who can take it to everything, and have trucks that actually turn!

He's just really good. Santa Rosa! That Sebastopol parking lot gap ollie that is alluded to is of interest to me.

Yo man chrome ball is sick! to me this blog brings back the color in skateboarding.

Last photo really is a banger. Although they all are pretty much. Everything he does looks insane because he's always charging full speed - although he also thinks up some creative, hairball lines too.

There was a quote from a Dill interview a while ago - it's posted here somewhere too I believe - where he said TNT looks like "a beautiful Indian on fire" when he skates. Couldn't have said it better myself.

don't just thank tnt or drehobl (although they fuckn rule.) for the resurgence of all terrain ripping. thank anti hero... and julien... and mic e... and TG... and jim t. those dudes are the reason TNT exists and has a forum to express himself. t-mo pro? just goes to show... those dudes know what's right in skateboarding and... thank you chops! alright... back to the playoffs.
