You're right about them having to play up to their niche of course but there's something great about a weirdo that's just oblivious to the whole thing.
    But your initial statement was saying whether there was a 'place for them' and I don't think there is a proper place for them unless they play to their strengths. Yes being oblivious does make it sicker in a way but by being oblivious also means you're still trying to get a conventional sponsor which in turn means you don't really 'have a place'

    These kinda guys need to take their form of skating on its own path, start up their own little board brands etc. which only comes from a degree of self awareness

    It's like some minimal techno producer just focusing on getting his tunes to No.1 in the charts...

    Yeah you're right. I've muddled myself abit. I suppose I think there is a place for them in the public domain but not at a professional level

    Yeah there definitely is within the broader public domain. Like I'm sure this Jeff Dechesare section could get on the front page of Reddit vs. a Nik Stain section or something

    there's always been freaks and weirdos and tech stinkers in skateboarding but now there is a platform for them for the world to see them every day with Instagram and you-tube.

    They've always managed to squeeze in somewhere though. Sherwood and Falcon being good examples.
    It's kind of funny how Jamal Smith started out as a youtube weirdo but was so loveable and cool that everyone just rated him and now he rides for palace.

    Yeah I thinks partly because he had enough self awareness and took the piss out of himself and wasn't chasing sponsorhip.

    Not to mention his style is actually good and thohg mega spinny stuff he does on paper should be fucking horrible but he makes it work so well. Also he can do some legit more conventionally 'tasteful' tricks as well (ie. his line at Fairfields in Palace vid)

    Yeah definitely, his self awareness sets him apart. He is aware that he is a goof and has fun with it, which differentiates him. He isn't a great example but was the first 'youtube' skater.

    Absolutely.

    He recently said something about not being able to do kickflips but being on the same team as Lucas and it was so rad.
    "There are people in skateboarding whose views and backgrounds differ from mine, but I appreciate that they’re a part of it because that’s what keeps skating so diverse and not just some homogenized bullshit. More opinions, more girls, more homosexuality, more global representation." Ryan Lay

    Yeah Jamal Smith's Twitter is probably one of the best things about skateboarding social media. Keeps it real as fuck
