I’m not going to say good can’t skate, but I am going to say this edit sucked. I’d like to say this is factual, but the truth is that it’s all subjective and it’s just my personal opinion. I’m glad he’s having fun.
Isn´t it a positive thing that everyone doesn´t skate the same way? I think he has a uniqe aproach to blading. I like it.
Isn´t it a bit stupid in our small community to not be able to see that diversity makes us stronger. Why would we wanna become more like any other “eXtremesport” and have big shows and shit? To make more money? Money is not gonna make you happier you know.
I think it´s a good thing we are all looked down upon, even all you haters, because it makes blading more legit and if you realize that it doesn´t matter what everyone thinks about you, you can really get a lot off energy off this thing we do for the love of it.
Christ. This is awful. The reason no one else has ever skated those spots is because they are shit. There is no angle to this skating. Its so flawed its unreal. I see something I want to put my feet on, so I do it. Great. Its like watching a baby learn to walk. No one cares, start running and do a flip and make it interesting baby.
And he’s on Ground Control? We need new direction yes but…this is not skilled, its nothing.
What was this? I thought Ground Control was all about dropping hammers not rolling on hammers. Why dont u grab your balls and skate something worth watching. Why is he skating rails that are bolted to the walls? is he just taking the easy way. I thought i was going to see something amazing from GC all i saw was a big dissapointment
it’s cool to see someone doing unconventional shit, and these tricks come with a very high level of difficulty (and some don’t), but it doesn’t look like very much fun at all and it doesn’t get me excited to blade.
is it fun anymore kevin?
new school kids should be into this ^
kevin yee is tight and very good at blading…
Farmer, Haffey, Broskow, Bolino, Livingston, Feinberg, Shima…
kevin yee has his nich and it’s cool that people dig this style, but come on don’t say he is the best that is a gross exaggeration.
he’s super awesome at blading, but he skates THE worst obstacles.
it’s pretentious if you ask me, it just insists upon itself so hard.
You just don’t get it, ROLLERBLADING IS MARKETING, IT’S A SPECTATOR SPORT. It’s not about the big stunts you pull, those can obviously help, it’s ALL ABOUT YOUR MARKETABILITY. DO YOU HAVE A STYLE THAT IS MARKETABLE? Do you look good when you rollerblade? Are you a good looking person? Were you born with good physique or a handsome face? This is the first requirement. The next would be your style of rollerblading, it does not matter how big your stunts are, Kevin’s style proves this. And then lastly is your trick vocabulary.
In my opinion, guys like Haffey and Aragon have marketability, they have style and they a certain “LOOK” factor, yes they were born with it. Every pro athlete is BORN WITH IT.
kevin could make an edit that all the bullshit losers on here hating would love. doing whatever lame ass tech trick down some big rail, or some spin to win garbage but he has been there and done that and has evolved to the next level. dudes like broskow, sk and farmer are actually all starting to skate a lot more like Kevin now a days because skating weird shit is getting trendy now.
I think the majority of people upset with this edit aren’t protesting his ‘unconventional’ skating, but rather that companies like Xsjado and GC are giving him an exceptional amount of credit by having him on their team with such a high title like Am for Xsjados.
I’m sure Yee is having the time of his life skating the way he does, after all don’t we all? But just because he skates differently, and spots skate spots that others would otherwise would not (more like we ignore because they are horridly unattractive) does not deem him a skill level of a GC rider or a Xsjado Am.
But ultimately, more power to him cus he loves what he’s doing and he’s getting a large amount of controversial reviews which feeds his skating lol.
Verdict: other people doing bigger, leeter, and fucking amazing shit should be in his place.
he does hard and interesting tricks for sure, but his lines are gross and choppy. plus, he does gay shit like run up steps for lines , or land sideways and stop, yet continue the line, or go from plant, to plant, to plant. to me it is all the things that blading does not need…
^ “all the things that blading does not need” ??? are you fucking kidding me man?!
Its not about what blading needs, its about having fun.
Kevin is no doubt talented but ya’ll high school kids hating wouldn’t know a damn thing about how technical his skating is since all you do is play on your p-rails all day long. Show some respect.
Negative makio to fishbrain both ways. Guaranteed not one person that posted shit talk could come close to doing that in the same line let alone your lifetime. Fuck you rollerblading faggots, and die slow mother fuckers.
Hey guys, if you want to see some 720 true top dick in the ass, that’s your problem.
kevin, like a few riders, is tryin’ to create something new, and it’s not for you, it’s because he just want it. Skating is personnal creativity, vision. Stop to split on it. Rollernews is really the place where i can read so much hate. Why ? guys, you sucks. Really.
I’m going to post again I hate this edit so much.
This is the worst thing I’ve ever seen.
Will someone who enjoys skating like this try and explain it to me? I don’t understand why he has skates on really, let a lone a frame sponsor, all the tricks he did would look better in shoes.
not much of a skill intensive edit but the spots he skates are like right around the corner. allthough i relate to this as this is my recent way of skating having to blade from home to work and viceversa. so one might say that this i something rad. i would say its the casual adaptation of rollerblading to our everyday normal fucked up lifes.
hm, he has skills of course – doing negatives like a boss, but it seems he is trying be original by every trick and it sometimes looks weird… for most people and also bladers this is lil boring… but like P said upper, its a good that there exists diversity in our sport in style,tricks,spots and whole idea and purpose of blading … I hope it moves rollerblading on …and nobody should hate, if dont like, tell it politely …
This is good skilled edit, don’t get the hate, some rail are high, the last sweaty is done one rail which isn’t that small, the line are awsome specially the trunk to trunk transfert, the reverse soul stall on the wall… He does deserve the be on both Xs and create orignial team because he’s creative, how many of these spots could you ride haters ?????
Love your perspective on rolling bro. Makes me want to go get creative out in the streets. Im sure if I could lace wallride to fish on a wall rail anyone seeing it will definately never want to rollerblade. lol.
