Icons of the Pop Shove-It

Upon hearing that we replayed a ~♥fabulous♥~ pop shove it 5x in one clip earlier this spring, the Shove-It Gods pointed us in the direction of what can surely hold a place on the ever-rotating merry-go-round that is this website’s contention for third greatest line ever done (after Carroll at the Library™ and Quim doing those two frontside 5050s.)

Yesterday, noted sweatpant clothier, Jimmy Gorecki, #rp-ed another Jimmy’s skateboard moves from two decades past. Jimmy Chung, of 411 #19 Fairman’s Industry Section fame, has been posting raw IG clips from his brief mid nineties run that mostly existed in Fairman’s shop videos. One included this absolute gem of a pop shove-it, an equally ravishing backside flip, and a slutty switch manual that looks better than you ever thought a mere switch manual could look on a foot-high ledge.

YouTube wormhole ensued, leading to all three of the aforementioned Fairman’s videos, the best of which is the third, from 1995.

1) Yo nobody not named Jahmal will ever look that cool opening a part with a backside 5050 on a #regular #ass ledge.
2) Dude predicted the precise hallmarks of the 90s vintage revival to a T. If you told me he was styling parts and not the @vintagesponsor guy, I’d believe you.
3) Has anyone ever made the full 360 around the Love fountain for a line? Figure it happened in a Sabotage video, but can’t recall in particular.
4) As my good friend Mike the Dad pointed out, how many *great* feebles on round bars outside of Matt Reason really exist? It’s a stock trick that rarely excels beyond, just like, grinding really long. The one he ends his part off with is a non-Reason exception. Must be da capris.
