That's right. This is the cycle of the New "New" School. The kids are ripping and leaving us in their wake. This dude is 15 years old and can do everything. He'll grow into style, but for now he's just having fun SKATEBOARDING!

Sh*t!!



Style/schmile!

kid has all the tricks down but no style now a days kids learn tricks first and if there good they develop there own style most look like robots going through a routine you know? but now that I look at that photo that kid

is like Tony T going over that hip to get that much air the kid is going mach 10 and that takes BIG BALLS!!!!!!!! so I must retract  some of my last statement not all are robots!

My first 3 years, not only did I have no style (still don't) but I had no tricks either. This kid will show up with style in a few years and we're all going to trip on the skills. He's been skatnig for like 3 years. He'll develop style in time. For now he's just skateboarding and stoked on the freedom to go big and know what it feels like to seriously rip sh*t up. He is just as good at street skating. Total monster skater.

The clips are me after 20 years of skateboarding and I'd call it more of a rut than skateboarding. I'm not sure if I have style but I know I only have about 10 tricks on a good day. Leave it to the kids to show us what's up with how bio skateboarding has become. It's all about progression. It's a rad sport with no limits. There are no rules. Style/schmile. It's all about getting rad and rolling around like a maniac!

Go skate!

He looks good!

It kind of reminds me of a couple of my guitar students years ago, little prodigies that could RIP, especially blues, but they didn't have enough life experiences underneath them at 11 and 14.

I understand what you guys are saying about 'style', but just give him time to develop his own.

That dude rips! His style will get a little better as he matures and gets stronger, but he does not have far to go. Those airs are huge.

Rad!

Some of you guys have his back. I know the kid and he's super nice. He skates every day. More hours than any of us. And yes, the skinny little 15 year old punk rips!!

Here's my quiver and that's not a re-issue Cab...it's real(notice the scratches on the Dog Town! Oh no!):

I don't see how anybody can look at that photo and rag about how the guy has no style. Style or not , what's up with the negativity? Skateboarding should be about learning, progressing, being stoked(not just for yourself but for others). I can get along with anyone who rides a skateboard and I have respect for them. From little grommets on popsicle sticks to downhillers and slolam guys. It doesn't matter to me how they do it, I enjoy watching it and doing it.. It's skateboarding.

Agree a 100% if its honest that's the way to go . It doesn't matter from what school you come from.

To me, it depends on what came before that air.  I see kids flying all over the place, but they drop in one side, do the air, land it and walk out.  That's it ... it's just the trick, and it doesn't fit into any flowing run. I know that they don't care, but to me it's a lot like doing 360s on the sidewalk (in fact, the bowl is just a big launch ramp to them).  Now, I don't know, this guy may be in the middle of a 30 second run, but that's not what I've been seeing.  Then again, who am I to ruin their fun?

I watched the local skate hero here try the same "down the ramp, up the other side, try 5050 grind, bail, try again" about 50 times the other day ... he looked great when he was actually working the lines of the park, but the trick was more important to him. Was boring as hell to me, but hey, when he made it the photo was going to look cool.

Yeah,

David is a rad kid. His nick name is "Pads." He hates it though! He used to wear full pads and looked silly cause he's so skinny.

Foot position happens. Everyone has their comfortable positions.

Rip sh*t up!!
