I find that most people are so confused on this whole matter, but tbh there's a fine line between style and plastic-ism.
I think everyone has style, there's just a side of style that leans to creativity and another side that leads to looking like a robot.
This being such a cliche topic amongst lowkey underground skateboarders, I don't want to sound like a Rieder, but there's people that look great while they skate and then there's people that bore me to death.
A lot of factors play into having great skateboarding style and as contradictory as this makes the post sound, *skill* is probably the biggest one. You can't have a great, enjoyable and creative style without oozing tons of skill. But with that being said I think any skater that has skill and a large trick book can have good style. I think a lot of posterboy energy drink marketeer skaters just choose to purposely skate like robots. Which is so sad. I think having that level of creative / intellect / art form skating also requires a pretty high level of intelligence. I mean when it all is said and done skating is way more of an art form than most of the things on earth today and we all know great artists were pretty intelligent (deep down).
I'm really in love with the way underground skating is moving right now. All these great skaters with great styles, portraying amazing creativity and real street power it just makes me so happy to be a skateboarder right now. I'm glad someone posted a Magenta video and even that Power's vid.
Style is great, skill is great and skateboarding is the best man.
