Habitat ad... basically the opposite of Maple ads. Wenning ripped. Bummed it didn't work out with Selfish (cough).

A bit out of the loop here gang. What went down with wenning? And what went down with Pappalardo. (Was just watching an old Workshop ad that introduced the two - Newport ledges, fam).

dunno if Brian knows but I got my first pair of linxs past down to me because of him, wish I was around sk8n back when they were produced I would of scooped alot of em, most durable and stylin for the ol tre bomb, I hope Wenning can get back on the horse one day but if not at least he got to take the ride. rad post, Jersey Pride!

you're comparing maple and habitat ads??? they weren't even in the same era really.

Alien and Girl did good with their sister board companies. Just saw the first half of Origins. I like it!

A lot of amazing ads in this one. Habitat did a good job with their layout and overall feel of their company. I was kinda bummed to hear Kalis refer to Habitat as "Habi-whack" lol

Hunchback style gets a pass when you're killing it and not fat. Unfortunately, it doesn't fly in 2011.

Saw some Wenning footage from around last halloween, dude hasn't lost shit, mostly ledge stuff of coarse. With a fuckin noLlie hardflip back salad front 180 out. Never seen that done .period. Yeah he's fat but fuck it. This post made me watch the DC video part. Still dope. Wenning could definatelly come back. Its up to him

thanks guys.

I guess its becoming pretty obvious how much I've been watching photosynthesis in the last few weeks.

anonymous3, the fact that there is a question of him having to "comeback" is my point. of course dude still has it because dude was too good not to still retain most of it. I know what you're saying and I do agree. Thanks. But it still bothers me because this site is littered with kids pissing away their gift but rarely were they as talented as Wenning.

The DC video was 8 years ago. He needs to serve the world a refresher course or just retire.
