We are finally back, and in the midst of the 2020 pandemic! Michael, Tony, Simon, and Bob talk freestyle! Join us!
Behold! Or...rather...listen! Tony Gale interviews Dan Garb!
Tony recorded this episode on his way to Paderborn this year, with hero of freestyle and driver-supreme Alex Foster, of LateTricks.com. So get something to drink, sit back, and pretend you're there in the car with them, Nathan Hill, and Nick Beaulieu.
We recorded this pretty early in the morning Texas time, so that's why I sound so slow and weird.
It's been a looooong time since we talked. We yammer about various gossipy happenings in the freestyle world, and Tony relates a class Fairbro story. So good.
Once again, Nathan Hill joined me (Bob) to do commentary of the Pro finals at the 2017 World Freestyle Roundup. It was fun. Listen while you do something else.
In this episode, we discuss freestyle skateboarding, with some additional discussion of psychology, opiates, and mega-church preachers. Laziest intro I've ever made for a podcast!
Simon Mrozinski and Michael Erskine join the podcast crew.
This is an unusually short episode, due to the hour of technical talk about trucks we decided to put into a separate, supplementary episode (22-a), which will be up soon.
We briefly touch on the greatness of Mode wheels, and Bob looks forward to riding the new 95a wheels. I’m glad we have hard and softer version of the wheel, no matter what the Brits say!
Then we discuss potential dates for the 2016 Paderborn contest, as Bob tries to firm up travel plans.
Next, we discuss issue 5 of Broken Fingers: Freestyle Skateboarding Quarterly. A really great issue. If you are a freestyler, you need to be getting each issue, period. Case closed.
You even get to hear us discuss what the hell we’re gonna do with all the stuff we recorded for this episode!
Music: The intro music is Ty Segal, with the song The Connection Man. Buy it somewhere. The closing music is of course the great David Bowie with Starman. We let it play out. Crank it up and let the ethereal beauty wash over you. Thanks for all the great music, David.
In this very long episode (We haven't talked for quite a while), Tony and Bob discuss various topics such as fingerflips, Tony's new Instagram Trick Tips, the Texas Freestyle Massacre, and various other topics.
Tony's trick tips can be found on his Instagram account: http://instagram.com/coldkennels
The music in this episode is from the band Red Hare - check them out and buy their music, from Dischord Records.
Mentions in the episode: Mike Osterman skates for Mode Skateboards. Jesse Whalen is now riding for Bustin Boards. Congrats to both of these great skaters.
In this episode we welcome special guest Simon Mrozinski, from England. Yes, Bob is outnumbered by Brits this time. We discuss Tony’s demo at the London Edge event with Callum Bowran, Bob’s trip to the 2013 Philly Freestyle contest, and various other freestyle related babble.
In this episode we refer to Tony’s supplemental video from episode 4 – click here to see it.
The video from the London Edge event is in two parts…
In this slightly more freeform episode, Tony, Matt, and Bob discuss various freestylers (see videos below), Bob confesses that he recently felt the anger while trying to practice, Matt’s cell phone causes interference, we hear about Tyler Self’s visit to Texas and his skate session with Bob, and skateboarding in Cuba.

In this very special episode of the Freestyle Contest we are joined by kickass guest, Darryl Grogan, long time awesome skater and winner of the Pro division at the recent Freestyle World Roundup contest in Vancouver, Canada!
In the podcast, Tony mentions Darryl’s part in the Casper video. Well, here it is!
Huge thanks to Darryl for being our first guest.
In this episode we give our very preliminary thoughts on the Freestyle World Roundup that happened this week in Vancouver. We discuss some Eastern European freestyler whose name we do not know but we all agree rips (or at least did rip in the late 1980s), we talk boards, high trucks, and lastly the boys give Bob some advice on learning M-80 Kickflips.
The video mentioned in this podcast – regarding the dude riding freestyle on an 1980s street board, can be found here: http://youtu.be/Fvaryy8eAYc
The great Ray Barbee, whom Bob mentions during the show, can be seen in classic part in Powell’s Ban This video, here: http://youtu.be/AKT0T_DJ80U
Tony filmed a bunch of M-80 variations as supplementary material for this episode. Very nice stuff! http://youtu.be/elykMLy4SRs
Thanks for listening.
