Mark Gonzales is extraordinarily gifted as an artist and skater. His contribution to the skating world is really hard to articulate. I had totally not realised how forward thinking his technical ability and style was when he was captured on classic skate films.

I was watching the dew tour 09 yesterday... thinking to myself "yeah i have seen most of these tricks before" and the street course has been better designed over the years but I still prefer to watch skating on the street, it just looks way more unpredictable and engaging.

if you haven't seen Gonz skate before, you can happily rejoice on youtube with many old clips to consume.
Prepared to be inspired by the original artist on wheels.
