    Default Has there been a Stevie Thompson appreciation thread?

    Well if not, there is now!

    I met this guy when I was living in Brighton in 1998. At a time when I was obsessed with learning every popular flip trick robot style Stevie blew me away with his spontaneity. To this day he is still one of my favorite skateboarders.

    He reminds me of Jimmy Boyes, similar kind of style and tricks.

    Jimmy is more raw, whereas Stevie Thompson is more tech, in comparison, that is! Super sick!

    During his stay in Brixton a few years back he made stockwell skatepark a really amazing place to skate by being there regularly and being an endless inspiration. He has the ender section in this and while it's rad it doesn't even nearly do him justice:

    Always really enjoyed his sections on the andy evans vids, skating 'non-spots' and looking like he was having a whale of a time. He came down to the deaner for the fun day this year, it was real cool getting a chance to skate with him.

    Stevie's an inspiration, a real O.G and a great dad. Smashes it every time he skates. Always down, day or night, park or street. I look forward to many more years of skating with him.

    This was a fun day:
