Best Old Schoolers currently?

Postby Toby » Wed Sep 01, 2010 5:46 pm

I need some help!

I need to know who are the best old schoolers currently?

I already have few on my list, but maybe I forgot someone.
So please keep some names coming, and also a link to pictures, videos or websites.
If you work for a company and have a sponsored old school rider, please let me know.

It is for an invitational event.

Thanks
Toby

What is old school

board offs

or hooked in?

There are a couple of riders in NZ that kind of ride different to the current trend
in freestyle - very hard out fast explosive hooked in, you probably won't find them doing a board off tho.

I think most a retired or semi retired. I remember liking a lot Julien Sudrat. He still rides but mainly in waves.

Old School as boardoffs, one foots, deadman etc...just hooked.

Unfortunately Marco cannot come, he is a very good rider for sure!

Does Shawn also do boardoffs? He does some great stuff otherwise!

It would be great to see Mark Shinn and Adam Koch in such an event.

yes, but they don't practice those tricks anymore, at least Mark.
Back then they rocked for sure!
