#828: superscientifical madness











"Them shits never get old."

Watched this dude's parts the other day and immediately had to go out and skate. So good.

One of the illest styles ever, John Igei.

And I realize it probably goes without saying but I miss Aesthetics.

In other news, stoked.

that autobahn ad is beautiful... love the skateboard supporting the piece of wood.

I feel as though John Igei has always been next level. I wish he was more present in magazine/video now but he is honestly just too damn cool...





Static IV?

Saw him skating in BK once. Very controlled k/f back 5-0's looking super nice. Nice guy too.

I feel like the death of companies is just as sad when you think about the skaters you won't get to see as much. Like this guy. So good, so good.

I remember seeing Igei skating Pulaski the first time I went to DC, just popping tricks so high on flat ground. I always looked forward to seeing him skate whenever I went up to DC after that.

Gotta admit, this guy flew under the radar in my world, but every single one of those scans is pure gold. Style for miles. Keep killin' it, Chops!

I was never much for tech skating (still have never landed a t360 flip after nine years on a board) but this guy was one of the first skaters I ever saw in print and his pop and control were inspiring, been a fan ever since
