So freaking good and so underrated.

Always thought that Reese was kind of overrated. Besides the fat pop he did not bring much to the table... just sayin - no hate intended

if you've ever skated with Reese in person, you would know how much dude was capable of bringing to the table. He had/has that fat pop on every single trick he does...all with ease.

insanely good. i loved that late 90s element team. i even used to buy the boards. now i think it's one of the worst companies ever. johnny shilleroff has managed to mistreat so many legends at this point, i can hardly get my head around it.

That Eastern Exposure part is an all time favorite for sure. Reese's style is so proper.

What issue is that bs flip at 3rd n army from? I had that one as a kid, didn't he have a photo fakie ollieing it in that same interview? Or full cab maybe?

Overrated? Did you see that goodtimes promo vid from the early 90's? Dude was fuckin shit up.

I'm convinced this is who Torey watched as a kid. Every trick he did(he did lots more than just fat pop ollies) was waist high. He did it all clean at a time when that really wasn't happening either. Musta been in control of his footage.
Good luck to him with Stacks.

He sort of reminds me of Jeremy Wray. In that he's not just big ollies, he can do other things. But his ridiculous ollies overshadow everything else, and that's what stands out to people.

His 411 am thing seemed out of left field to me. An unknown to me at the time.

Having pop is a good thing!

Man, that bs flip is rawwww!! Every frame is excellent! Reese was one of the first dudes I glommed onto when I was first introduced to skateboarding. Really incredible pop and trick selection and style. So fresh and so clean, clean. Nostalgia is common these days, especially on this site, but I definitely find myself coming back to Forbes and Scooch and proper guys like that.
Also, I'm grateful for his influence - his pop you can't deny and you can't deny it's a benefit to his skating; that and Dylan Rieder credited him in an interview with scolding/encouraging him about popping his board. Way to go, Reese!
