chrome ball incident #628: heaven is falling















Been saving this one for a minute...

Thrasher's epic D.Way retrospective commemorating Danny's 2nd SOTY win back in 2005.

A little newer than what I usually go with but it's just so damn good.

Have a great weekend everyone.

I have been a lurker on this site for months. But when Danny showed up...I had to write what I believe. Danny Way besides "Rodney" is the best skater PERIOD. What he does is mind blowing.

The gnarliest ever! Saw him at McGill's skatepark a few times back in the day and would just sit and watch in total awe.

That switch nosegrind is one of the gnarliest things I have ever seen.

Can't believe Danny can still walk after the shit he puts his body through, let alone 80ft 360s!?!?!
The great wall!?!?!?
DAMN!!!!
That Madollie pic is great!
Heard he was making some super mega shit in Hawaii. Can't wait to see it!

D "the bionic" Way!!!!
Miss a lot not seeing him at he Mega ramp touring in Brazil, unfortunately he got hurt at the first day...his vert skills has always been killing but don´t forget his street tech too, Plan B´s Virtual Reality it´s a real proof of his street skills as well as C.McKay!

Solid interview. Took me a while to read it!

It's hard to tell in an interview but in the 3 or 4 I've read over the past 20+ years, Danny Way comes across as some combination of cocky, arrogant and confident. I get the impression he would be super intimidating to meet in person.

Hosoi/Way dubs is amazing! And I guess it's pretty ironic that back in 91, when everyone was wearing other companies' shirts and hats, he's wearing and Alien shirt, which he ended up riding for a decade later.

The guy is so gnarly.

I forgot one thing... that Plan B vs. Kanten thing! Never saw it, never knew about it, until a few years ago. So crazy. Huge "What if...". Another crazy "What if" came up in that Frankie Hill web doc... Hill on Blind!? wtf...

"Murdered a gay guy!"

Indeed. Interesting how this and Swindell sitting in prison is just completely overlooked and ignored in the industry. Pretty damn awful.

I remember seeing D Way in Muenster in 91. WAAAAY back then he was already trying the 900.....
