pushed further…

well, i was a little late on the viewing of the new David Gonzalez part on the Thrasher site… when i watched it, i was blown away… my expectations were met and exceeded for sure! i knew it was gonna be all handrails, hubbas, and fucked up stuff… but some of these spots were pipe dreams for most people (even pros)…

there were a bunch of tricks that got me charged up… there were some that got me thinking, “this kid is moving skateboarding”… that’s the insanity… he is a kid… doing the most burly shit i have seen in a long time… flip trick gap out to hubba grinds, kinked death rails, head high handrails, etc… lot of respect for David Gonzalez…

the two tricks that blew my mind were the ender and the down to flat handrail to drop… my hands were sweating after these hammers… i felt a sense of insane slam when watching these go down… it just seemed that there was no way he would stick these tricks… the angles of the rail with the abruptness of the kinks just seemed a bit too much… but he just powers right through to an effortless landing… amazing. (i think that rail to flat to drop should have been the ender… so fucked.)

after the part was over, i still couldn’t quite figure out what i saw… it was an overload of hammertime… i don’t think anyone could watch that part once and take it all in… i am anxious to see what this kid is gonna put out in his next Flip part… congrats to him on this part… he pushed himself to limits not many others have and succeeded… everyone knew he was insane, but this just shows that there are infinite amounts of skateboarding progression barriers that can be overcome…

David Gonzalez is possessed… but he is also inspiring… well done.

peace and noLove…
