I thought Andrew wore the Braves hat because his first name started with the letter A. He has worn Florida Gators gear in the past.

Is the Boss wearing Emericas for his varial heel ender? The shoes didn't look like Vans. There are people wearing masks in the background so the footage can't be all that old.

I definitely agree Zach Allen improved greatly in this video. I was stoked on his part. The five minute Lennon song, not so much. Baker ain't afraid to take a big swing and miss for music.

As I often comment, Thrasher is doing what they can, but it is physically too much for one entity to handle everything. Black skaters routinely get the cover, interviews, photos, and more so those are positive things. Gary Rogers gives us the news each week, too. There's always going to be room for improvement from everybody.

Another thing about Clyde, which maybe gets overshadowed by his writing, is that he ripped on a skateboard. There's never a bad skating photo of him.

A couple of other industry folks worth mentioning would include Chris Pastras, Ron Allen, Karl Watson, and Atiba Jefferson. The biz would definitely benefit from some from new faces as those dudes are all old. Just like us.
