#589: attack of new jerusalem










"Unfortunately, due to his East Coast locale and attitude coupled with chronic injuries, a good portion of the skate community might never know how great Tim O’Connor is, and always was, at skateboarding. His desire to innovate, keep things fun, real and fresh has always preceded his desire for skate fame or to be liked by everyone. If everyone likes you, you’re most likely doing something wrong, because being liked by all is impossible."

-an old friend of Tim's

Tim's always been one of my favorites to watch. Amazing style and trick selection. I really hope he comes out with a full video part.

Oh and that bs180-nosegrind shot is absolutely tits.

This may be a dumb question but is that Jason Dill in the background next to the car in that backside kickflip photo?

I really like the angle on the kickflip. And the Saviers!

Underachievers part was super. I was definitely a fan back in the day. His bs shifties always looked good and he did tricks and skated to what seemed to be the beat of his own drum.

bs 180 fakie nose grind photo is great.

big flip at fort miley is awesome!

fwiw from the clips I've seen on youtube, I don't think he's very funny.
