chrome ball incident #584: the dirt










Infamous antics both on and off his board, I hope Danny is doing well out there and gets back in the game soon enough. Skateboarding needs assholes like him.

Always dug this part. This one, too.

Re-watching that Mosaic part--which was always one of my favorites from the video--it's apparent how hard Renaud killed it. As I could imagine Thrasher saying it, "all killer, no filler." It's a shame the dude is no longer in the game.

Damn this was a pleasant surprise! Such a great style, and an FL legend.

He had some tricks in the friends montage in the MIA video. I don't know how old those tricks were.

I know very little about this guy. Kinda snoozed at the wheel when he was coming up.

bs 180 fakie nose grind sequence is killer. Mosaic part is solid. I think I might have seen it once before. Definitely never seen that Static 3 part. sw fs 50-50 on the flat rail bs 180 out the other side surprised me. sw wallride nollie out at the brooklyn banks was sick!

Man, this was a great thing to wake up to this morning. All of those old Habitat ads are awesome.

9 stories is a big fall, especially if it's only the beginning. Hope to see him reappear someday.

I like how habitat promotes Danny Renaud 7 years later after he got kicked off.
