I gotta say Tjadens the man! He kills it and was lottis partner in telegraph.
But really.... Carroll is the blueprint for the modern street skater.

"be honest, if you were brian edwards or tjaden brewer and you saw the four other dudes your backtail was gonna be compared to in that piece, would you really go through with it? just sayin."
^Damn. Pretty much what I thought when I scrolled down and looked at that. Irrelevent but I've got to say, Ethan Fowler's b/s t/s all day.

Always loved MC. The Airwalk pic is great. Remember the Venture add where he's doing a Japan Air on an Miniramp and the add said:"Put the fun back into skateboarding"? That was so true back then (mid 90's, I think) and I think MC still brings back the fun with pics like that Airwalk.

Their bsts's aren't stinking, so there's no need to get all high and mighty.

Didn't say their backtails were stinky by any means, just saying that between Kenny Anderson, Rick Howard and Mike Carroll (Lee Smith is no slouch either) those are some of the all-time best styles ever.

I'd gladly donate my ankles to MC if he could knock out a full part for each one. Dudes ankles are cursed. Best style and no slack anything in his career. MC!

Still one of the most anticipated video parts for the upcoming Girl / Chocolate vid.
Switch f/s flip at Embarcadero, was that from Big Brother #1 ?

Love the nollie varial flip lakai sequence, but still can't believe how jocked out and lame late 90's early 00's skate shoes were. that shoe in the ad looks fucking horrible!! MC is my all time favorite and hope he comes through for the new vid.

I can't say enough good things about this post. One of, if not my all time favorite. That back smith is photo is classic, rockin the Chocolate cargo pants. Carroll can make any trick look good, like his front salad in FF, and makes stylish tricks all the more stylish.

The Chez said...

All time.

One of the craziest things is his parts get so overlooked in the Girl vids nowadays because they are so heavy on talent.

I think both his Yeah Right! and Fully Flared parts were overlooked(if that's possible). Plus, he always chooses good songs. His parts in Finally and Questionable always stoke me out.

Ollie over the bar into a swastika bank. Nuts!

Agree... Airwalk sole kick into the lens is nice.

nollie flip varial over the rail. come on!

Carroll's been skating at such a high level for so long. Legendary status. I wonder how much his macaroni and cheese h-street board is worth these days?

I like that bs tail slide article. Classic posture by Kenny, Rickk and Carroll. Square upper body is key.

bs smith is so pointed down. great technique.
