Man that bs nose blunt at government center in Boston was so sick. The photo doesn't really do it justice... I think it's framed too tight. whatever though... Dude's radical.

Free Your Mind was to short compared to the previous Transworld videos

Just watched Free Your Mind over the weekend actually. Super rad video but the order of the parts just seemed kinda weird... Drehobl, Welsh and then Stanton?

Hey does anyone knows whathever happened to Stanton? I mean, is he still skating? I know that he got kicked off of DC/Plan B years ago...I wondered if he still skates or if he's on crack?

Stanton just released a web-part a couple of weeks ago. And he had that Element Trio part last yaer! He is defenitly still skating. He is said to have left Element though, but don't know for sure.

Regarding Wu Welsh - glad to see those photos, he used to be one of my favorites around the Free Your Mind time.

I like the invert with the gloves on. And his bs noseblunt slides are always good. I've never landed one in my life. Can't say I've put much time into them either but damn... that trick seems nearly impossible.

BS NB.. so tough, but when done right look so beautiful.

Welsh is a skateboarder. I like him

@ Anonymous : I'm sure Stanton is not doing crack, at least I hope so...it's just that he was all over the place a few years ago and all of a sudden all his sponsors dropped him off and he was off the radar for a while...so I was wondering: wtf happened to him?! because we've seen so many talented skaters being dropped bytheir sponsors because of drugs and sh't, if you don't believe me, see Guy Mariano, Danny Renaud, Dylan Rieder...You know where i'm coming from? It has nothing to do with the color of Stanto's skin, so don't get me misunderstood...
@Keith and White Ninja: get the f'ck out of your computer and let's practise those goddamn BS/NS...skate for life! Peace

incline to BSNBS on the bricks is one of the sickest things I've ever seen in my life, i remember when that photo dropped

Stanton dissappeared like all the Element skater do. They call it the Element "Black Hole"
