Title: Colin McKay
Post by: _fucktard_ on June 02, 2010, 01:59:11 PM
One of my favorite vert skaters. He has such a clean-tech style and he can go huge. I know he has had some serious injuries that have had him down for awhile. He had parts in Life after death in '06 and Superfuture in '08..That is well over two years. I know he's never been a hard core contest skater but c'mon. Haven't seen a photo or clip of this guy ripping in years. Does he still skate, did he retire???

After watching Maloof this weekend and seeing Felipe Gustavo just killing it, how is it that he's not pro?  Super consistant, clean style, sick bag of tricks; he should be pro. Colin hasn't done anything in literally years and he has a board out, I don't understand the skateboarding world sometimes....

Dude, I was so wrong about Colin. I thought just because he doesn't enter contests, put out video parts or get any coverage in magazines he was milking his pro status and didn't have "it" anymore. Wow, was I wrong. Did anyone see the shit he was doing at the Xgames Vert best trick? He was killing it, still has a smooth ass tech style. Good to see him ripping shit again.
