Kickflip of the Year

Skateboarding gets more absurd by the day. Westgate looks like he has been watching a lot of Busenitz parts and maybe smoking PCP.

Back smith up a handrail? What the hell is going on?

Below is the gold standard for kickflips around here (obviously solely on a professional, not company-internal level), let’s include a side by side comparison. It looks pretty up to par.

  • A Rodney vs. Daewon-esque Busenitz vs. Westgate video set solely in San Francisco would probably be the greatest thing to happen in skateboarding, ever. Someone call Deluxe and Zoo.
