This guy is still putting out full parts…but what else do you expect from perhaps the only first generation Girl/Choc rider to contribute a full section in literally every one of their projects that he was a part of. Makes you wonder why the 30+, people-just-wanna-see-you-skate guys don’t lighten up and throw something out there more often. Gino sorta started to oblige us after Pretty Sweet, and hopefully the guys who share that special category follow suit.
After last year’s “two 360 flips in a row” / FTC part, York is back with a four-minute section for a company that most of us out east have probably never heard of. The dude is writing the book on how to make the third arc of a skate career fun and relatable to people whose ability is a few million notches below a Plan B rider’s. Even the current no comply and wallie renaissance makes its way to York — a dude who spent most of his pro career with those tricks being underutilized — so it’s rad to see him toss those in between the noseslide and crook combos.
The part’s brief stop in New York makes us wish he paid Three Up Three Down a visit, as the potential for an on-brand York line there is huge. No, he’d know not to wax it ;)
Tied with Scott Kane’s comeback part as 2014’s best underdog film.
