    Default WTF happened to Josh Kasper?

    I was watching Trilogy this weekend and marvellign at Josh Kasper's section. I know that he used to be a blader, and he had a limited repertoire, but I was always stoked on Josh Kasper. His benihana over the rail in Trilogy is sick. He was also in the Storm (Osiris). I know that he got dropped by Blind and Osiris in 2003 or 04.

    Does anyone know what the hell happened to him since then? I know this is a bit like one of those lame 'where are they now?' things but I am genuinely interested in how someone can drop off the radar so completely?

    I think benihanas are under-rated. They're hard as fuck, quite apart from anything else. Also, I've never seen anyone else work two benihanas into one line! Maybe there's a reason for that.

    He also had a wicked tré! I know that it was one of only three tricks he could do but they were mental.


    Bring back benihanas!

    Was it this years or last years Thrasher King of the Road?

    He was the blind special guest skater, if you look on the thrasher site theres a vid of him doing a benihana. Calling all kasperholics. That tre flip at carlsbad was pretty sick though.

    Afraid not. Well, maybe the bit about bringing back benihanas, but I genuinely though Josh Kasper was fucking good and I am interested to find out what happened to him. At a time when other older skaters are gettign back into it, Like Shiloh etc, it just seems relevant.

    Yeah it was, and that was a horrible looking slam the first time he tried it!

    Wasn't it his dream to do some kind of stadium demo where he rides in on a Harley and then bennihanas over a bunch of Kasperholics? (or possibly the Harley, I forget).

    What happened to Josh Kasper...and Aaron Snyder, Dave Mayhew, Adam Mcnatt and all those other pros who obviously got too old and had to find an alternative career path.

    I think he said the Kasperholics thing was a joke once he had come to terms with his lack of street cred.

    Oh yeah, don't get me wrong. It sounds like he was a tool. The Kasperholics was never going to be a good idea. But he was a reasonable skater.

    As for the too old point, agreed up to a point, but then there are loads of older pros who still skate, and many more who are still in the industry.
