To me the pantheon of great tall-guy skaters like BA, Kenny Hughes and Andrew Reynolds reserves a spot for Tilt Moder Jesse Erickson, especially when it comes to tech merchants such as Rob Welsh. Before beard farming, Santa Cruz talent-wrangling and giant iron-wrought pentagrams came into vogue, Jesse Erickson was surfing out of ledge tricks at speed, with the occasional lewd conduct happening in the background or even more occasionally in the foreground. His section in “Black Cat” seems to have vanished into the great internet vaporizer but the above part from “Man Down” is just as good, offering a rarely seen varial flip out of a backside tailslide, a backside noseblunt transfer to regular and a yeoman’s switch wallie. Always thought the passionate hurling of the garbage can during one of his lines here ranked as some kind of ‘defining moment’ for the TMA.
*and, he’s got one out of a frontside blunt in the OG Tilt Mode.
