The weekend's are a slow time around the SMLTalk HQ and it's not without good reason: skateboarding downtown, especially the more coveted flatground spots, is a weekend man's game. It should go without saying, but after a long week of providing you, our fair reader, with incredible content, we try to relax and rejuvenate at the local watering hole, only to stay too long, leading to heavy vomiting and absolutely no skating the next day. So with all that being said, we are beginning a new weekend segment called Picky's Picks. Our good friend and all around amazing human being, Erik Pickard, will pick a video of his choice and write a little something about it. Simple as that. It might not even be a skateboarding video, we gave him total control. It's almost impossible to say no to someone that handsome. From here on out, Sunday's belong to Erik "Picky" Pickard. Enjoy. - SMLTalk Staff
For the first installment of "Picky's Pick", a new weekly segment featuring whatever part from the skateboarding world I choose, I decided to go with one of my favorite parts of all time, Ragdoll from Pig Wood's 2005 video, Slaughterhouse.
This part has the craziest trick selections known to man. Don't believe me? Even his filmer has no idea what he's doing (4:36).
Just sit back, relax, and enjoy my pick and be sure to check back every Sunday for the part I pick next.
Who knows? It could be your part (it won't be, don't flatter yourself).
