Purple Haze

Somebody put together this edit of Nick Trapasso from some recent Toy Machine footage and it’s real good. Personally I never would have guessed that the little troll-faced kid from the Bootleg video, flopping switch heelflips on a board half as tall as he was, would grow into one of the brighter hopes for skating’s future. Kareem Campbell probably would’ve known, if he wasn’t busy digging City Stars’ grave with an iced-out shovel. Either way Trapasso was laying low for a couple years there, cocooning or something before taking flight via switch b/s 360s and whatnot. Perhaps he was recovering from the trauma of associating with Brian Michaud. (via SLAP boards)
