Jimmy was on Creature. Alex Perelson was the second recent vert guy on Real. I think he was pro status for them, but I'm not sure he ever got a board. Nichol Hause was added to Real officially before Jimmy was announced, but she's still am (as far as I know.)

I thought Jimmy's pivot on the flat was neat. Granted, you can't do them too often, but as a cool surprise to break up the constant back & forth, it's a good move. Did Mike V. do one ages ago?

It's worth noting that his mom is a professional ballerina and his dad is an orchestra conductor.

I think Ronnie Sandoval might be the guy who could do both park and vert properly. Perhaps Ben Raybourn as well.

Where does Auby Taylor fit in all this? He gave up on street skating and committed to learning the vertical traditions. His vert take seems way more interesting.

There are random World of X Games shows on ESPN2 later on Sunday nights. Sometimes they have skateboarding. I don't usually remember to check. I think the vert contest circuit might be dead and that's a shame.

Speaking of the World's Strongest Man, a former WSM lives in my town. We print brochures and letterhead for him. It's awesome.

I've had a few vague ideas for a skate company over the years. Nothing that would really work or hasn't been done already. I wouldn't want to bother with the business aspect of things. It probably wouldn't even have a name, just pictures.
