Not For Nothing But This Nick Tucker Sequence Is Among The More Fucked Up In Recent Memory

December 18, 2013

If you were to glance at any of the above frames on its own, possibly in a moment of quiet repose, what trick might you guess Nick Tucker is whipping down those well-trod Hollywood steps on behalf of Supra shoes — fakie 360 flip? Half-cab kickflip? Tweaked switch backside heelflip? Backside 360, or something far more ominous? If you guessed “switch inward heelflip” you may legally change your name to Pat Canale. While John Igei continues to hold the title for the best switch inward heelflip ever performed, over the Pier 7 block just a bit up the road in SF, a persuasive case maybe could be built for Nick Tucker to hold a spot somewhere in the top 10 off the strength of this outlandish sequence alone.

Supra Has Stevie Williams Riding The Bench

July 29, 2012

Incendiary click-bait topic title aside, not a great deal to see here other than a much fantastic photo of Stevie Williams in this ad for his Supra signature model footwear. Enjoy that this photo doesn’t clonk you over the head with a big fisheye angle showing how high the bench is, kinda like Stevie Williams’ strictly basics attire here, the whole idea seems to be take it or leave it. A dude cracking an awesome trick as he goes down the sidewalk, on his way to wherever. The Hollywood squares sidewalk kind of threw me at first but this is a worthwhile entry in this internet site’s long-running love affair with the switch frontside noseslide and from a veteran practitioner. There are plenty pro-types whose off-board months and years carry the whiff of wasted time but Stevie Williams always has seemed to be genuinely operating in the background, to whatever end, and really looking forward to his section in this long-discussed DGK video.
