What’s wrong with a genesys boot? I’ve worn all kinds of brands, looking for a comfy skate since I have oddly-shaped feet, and the only two boots that were always a comfortable fit were Salomons and Genesys boots. They’re good skates.
How was that boring? Explain, using more than just two words!!! Because that was on point and fucking clean. Better than most other pros out there. Respect him and this sport before making comments about something you will never understand!
McLeod’s incredibly gifted and clearly practises all the time.
Some people get more of a kick out of being able to 540 into everything and be able to do all their tricks switch. They enjoy the difficulty.
Some people would prefer to try and toe roll an unexpected piece of urban furniture.
We’re a diverse breed dude. Embrace it.
McLeod is the man. Dude can probably 900 both ways, can probably 450 royale both ways, can jump higher than almost anyone, hold insanely long grinds, hit insane switches, releases plenty of footage and could give Aragon or Haffey or pretty much anyone a massice challenge in a game of S.K.A.TE. Enjoy him for what he is-a true legend of the “sport”.
mcloud is boss, been killing it for years. just cus he doesn’t fuck with toe rolls or any “creative shit” doesn’t make him boring. He is Bad ass and better than any of the mother fuckers posting on rollernews. He been putting in work for years. only problem i have with the edit is why the fuck is he Rockin SL’s? I thought he got a pro boot on Gens. Just proves what ive been saying since SLs came out. GENs SUCK FAT DICK!!!!
These tricks are ALL recycled and were done by Farmer, Broskow, & Mcleod 10 years ago. That is why this is boring to those who have been skating longer than 10 years. Sure if you are on year 5 or 6 you would find this edit interesting, otherwise its pretty much a blast from the past hahahaha.
you gotta enjoy peoples skating for what it is. not many are doing that type of skating these days… well not a good as that, so may as well just appreciate it.
the reality is, this type of skating will appeal most to younger kids who haven’t seen it done as much before. My hope is that he is able to keep working and push it to a new level never seen before. THEN it could be appreciated by all skaters young or old.
…on the other hand. WINSTON WADDLE what are you doing with your life?! hahahaha
Agree here and give Ian all the credit in the world but dude is BORING as fuck to watch skate…
yes he will do like 20 different tricks all down handy rails and average crap but all that is not even nearly worth watching Jon Bolino stomp out an INSANE gap or super stylish skaters like SK or Broskow…
Not saying Ian isn’t a machine here but honestly anyone could do the tricks he does and the spots he picks given enough time an practice.
Sick skating from a sick blader, but this is a practice warehouse and nothing innovative is ever coming out of that building. These are P-Rail edits! that ledge is barely knee high and they sit there for hours weeks months skating the same shit over and over again on the same ledges.
Show me some crazy ledge transfers, show me some sick wall rides over the doorway, what about doing runs? 4 or 5 tricks in a flow line? Thats why this was boring.
Wow! Mad Haters. That ledge is the warehouse is pretty decent. Even doing as top soul on that bitch is pretty legit with how steep it is. That Bs Royale would have made most of you slip out… He spun into it.
Ian is easily the best ledge skater in the world. Ive been blading for 18 years, ive seen all the skating from the spin to win days. Its not boring, its just not trendy right now. The style that ian has on these tricks is incredible and perfectly solid, cant hate. He has consistently been doing next level switch ups and rail tricks his entire skating career. One of the first people doing 900′s on street, and every single one of his sections are incredible. To discredit him is blasphemous.
hammer ass shit is what skating is about, all you other pussies kick curbs and love tap ledges. fucking pussies. you haters balls just havnt dropped and r scared to do a real down rail or get hurt.. fuck you all farmer, haffey, aragon, cambell, feinberg, wojda, montre… NOONE! has done that hammer of a switchup on a big ass downledge. i dont give a fuck about fakie 7 ao soul or fakie 7 kindgrind
IAIN winston and quinn feldman destroy lives more than anybody, cuz they throw that hammer shit and dont give a fuck about all that pussy shit you SO CALLED BLADERS do. FUCKEN haters go skateboard. Cyress OUT!!!
damn people really like commenting on winstons apperance…haha i think its funny you might say hes fat but that fat guy will be beter than you ever wish you could ever be. i just look at the hammers i see done and the massive rail transfers noone else can do. chubby or not thats a true rollerblader not like you possers
