I watch that part every so often. i seriously think it's one of the best parts ever. if it weren't for the overall little kid-ness of FTD and intermittent fake style, i think it would be in the conversation with Guy in Mouse, PJ in PJLWHL, and Henry in TAHPOL...

Fully agreed. Dude definitely did some balls out stuff a long ass time ago, and then beyond that, the entertainment factor of that section is off the charts, and for that matter, not many skateboard parts can be called entertaining in the true sense.

The whole video epitomized that time period in skateboarding. I know that we all rolled around in baggy windpants on Shorty's boards soon after. While this part was probably the standout, you can't forget parts like Steve O and of course Aaron Snyder (pre-photoshop-fiasco).

it's sick how that dude still looks the same, skates the same and acts the same. He never jumped on any bandwagon.

Everyone shit their pants when Fully Flared came out, but I've always said most all of those tricks were done a decade or more ago. Anyone remember Troubleshooters?

It's always good to remember Troubleshooters, and then beyond that, it should be said that half of Marc Johnson's ledge wizardry from FF was done in Questionable.

Fulfill the Dream was my favorite video growing up, Aaron's part kills it.
