Genghis Szott

Our good friend Aaron Szott recently moved to Mongolia (yes, Mongolia) for a job opportunity (he knows a lot about economics and stuff.) Taking inspiration from the guy who tracked down and put together the 44 seconds of known Ryan Hickey footage, we compiled all the random bits and pieces of Aaron’s footage from the past decade, and edited them to the sounds of his favorite rapper. It turns out that Aaron’s skateboarding has a cult following well beyond QS, and even on the internet’s most cynical corners. (No clue who “django whinehard” is on Slap, but he is incorrect in saying we have new Aaron footage to release. Last time he was here, we mostly skated Tompkins and talked about Max B.)

Here are a few clips taken from old QS videos, Jay Maldonado’s La Luz video, the first Traffic video, Lurkers 2, and issues of E.S.T.

Good luck out there, buddy.

(Stuyvesant Grocery BGPs. R.I.P.)

P.S. There are still jobs out there, current college students! You may just need to re-locate to Mongolia.

  • Yo Snackman, that thread on slap dated back to 2007 which could have been the reason for the confusion of the “django whinehard” post. Good lookin out with the compilation clip though!!

  • I miss the days of Tompkins when Aaron and Mavadon were both shredding the box on the daily, making us wish we could do fakie crooks and nosegrind reverts like that. They may have been the original pioneers of being handsome and skateboarding, before Dylan.

    and besides Bici

  • I’m from NW ohio and I got psyched on Szott after seeing his mindbending tricks in the Japanese vid Overground Broadcasting (giant ollie off nearly nonexistent bump from street to sidewalk stands out in memory the most), but I could never track down footage of this guy. Problem solved, apparently. Just dig the fact that he can pull sick lines at spots that aren’t spots, i.e. gnarly cruiser lines on random sidewalks
