Volume - Tate Roskelly

He is another section from the skate DVD.

Tate is an incredible rider. He really pushes the boundaries of what is possible. I think he takes it too far and makes things look cheesy. I really admire his vision though. Some of the tricks in this section are fucking amazing and so cool, and others are really abysmally dorky. I've watched it once and wouldn't watch it again, but as I've said I really respect his vision.

If someone was to curate all of Tate's cool shit and put it together with some really raw, real street you would have the makings of one of the best riders ever - but unfortunately Tate doesn't see it that way, I'd say. Its one of those things - to have that vision you have to be so radical. Hopefully someone comes along and can take from Tate's discourse and then apply it to some shit that is really rad and become the best rider ever. Sort of like Ian Schwartz, someone who has the edge, but doesn't jump off too far into fruit-loop-ism.
