    that looks so unpredictable/suicidal, the hang up potential has to be code red. Does it only work on tranny without coping?

    Probably because it predates the ollie era.
    Edgers were kind of the transitional trick moment before people started 'getting air' so they kind of became irrelevant once aerials were the norm.
    Such a good feeling trick though....

    Nick Zorlac does the sickest two wheel ones. Are they called two-wheel edgers or what?

    Are you sure you don't mean Carve Grinds? I've only ever seen Nick do them on his trucks not his wheels. Maybe he does, though.

    They're pretty fun and easier than an edger! Just push your toes. Not done one for a long time though!

    Mental! Easier on anything without coping really.

    Isn't that Peabody photo a frontside ollie? If not then that trick's fucking cool

    Also, what the utter fuck is up with this Jeff Tatum? He looks like an extra from Pirates of the Carribbean, who accidentally wandered onto the set of Spinal Tap and then got bitchslapped by KISS's make-up artist...

    Poor Grosso, having to keep a straight face that whole time

    I asked a few people about that yesterday including Grosso himself (cmoac) and apparently JT wears face paint pretty much the whole time.
    To me that is fucking sick.
