The Gonz Appreciation Thread

Postby doowyrag » Fri Oct 21, 2016 8:21 pm

Evenin' All,

An idea completely ripped off from the Sidewalk Forum.

Please feel free to post any Gonz clips that you happen to find / enjoy in here.

One from Crailtap last week..



And a new one as part of the BS with TG series today..



Haven't seen the TG one myself yet, but will pop open a booze shortly and give it a watch.

Cheers.

I love him from afar, but if I tell him in person the romance could be lost. Dear Deadre, How Can I Let Gonz Know How I feel?

Anyone who skates decks the width of an ironing board is good by me.

Agreed. I really like his bikes too. I'd like the BMX is this one.

Hadn't seen this - cheers! He like to skate a wide range of boards for sure.

Haha! Pretty much 'snap'. Apart from all the street plants and launch ramps.

Cheers gents!!

Picked this up from the skate Junkies forum:

[YouTube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDg1vDUp3us[/YouTube]

The frontside disaster at 2:48 was shot at The Works in Leeds. That vert wall is insanely high - probably an 8' transition with 4 or 5 ' of vert (sadly it's gone now). I've never managed to get more than a foot from the top of it. To pull a move like that is totally rad.

He is using Wes Humpston's Beamer mold for that deck. He didn't come up with the idea of the Beam pressed in the middle, it was Wes. Wes sent him a few Bulldog boards with the beam and he has messed with the shape from there.

The Jenkem remix was brilliant. I sometimes forget just how gnarly he was/is. Too many highlights to mention, but the kickflip hippy jump and part where he was skating (fast) on top of the (very thin) brick wall are already burnt into my brain.

Will revisit that later. Thanks for posting.

Thanks for posting it. Great compilation of clips. I loved the ride up the block on the Brooklyn Banks were he rides his board up tail first and just jumps round to ride down, simple but brilliant.

Good call - cheers Fen.

Coincidentally, I just read an interview with Sem Rubio about the Mark Gonzales Book that came out recently.
