Rogue States And Freelance Despots Retain Consultant To Evaluate Lasting Effects Of Jesse Erickson’s Part In The “Man Down” Video

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.

    I always loved this part. The line with the distractions is a classic.

  4. Joel Says:

    That part from the first TM vid still holds up better than most parts from that era, period.

  5. intheknow Says:

    that kickflip back lip on the step up ledge is nigh untouchable.

    Was that post title predictive of Edward Snowden?

    They put the passion in that trash can and let it loose. I can never get enough trash can. Really, though.
