what kind of vehicle does a-stone drive?
Posted By: jim on April 4th, 2006 at 08:31PM PST
austin is one of my favorite skaters just because of his smooth and relaxed style and chill trick selection. I really hope suffer the joy is as good as good and evil was.

i dont wanna get in some fashion war... so yer you got your opinion i got mine
Posted By: dh on April 5th, 2006 at 01:52AM PST
you back nosegrinding that ledge, berry, is completely irrelevant and is pretty much erased from history if austin did it .. who the fuck are you to compare yourself to austin .. i hope you are walking across a busy street someday soon and get distracted by bragging about how sweet you are and fail to see an oncoming car and it runs your foot over , breaks it, the foot gets infected and then it gets amputated .. seriously, noone could ever touch austins steez .. fuck yourself
Posted By: ryan on April 5th, 2006 at 02:23AM PST
I must come to the defense of "berry" a little bit.
Writing on the web can be weird because you never know where someone was coming from.
If he was bragging and saying that he did it in a way to belittle Austin, then fuck him. It sounds like "ryan" took it that way.
The reason I write is because when I read it, I took it another way. Like he was surprised to see the photo, because he skated that same spot recently.
Now a backside nose-grind is a pretty mellow trick, and I could imagine a number of kids reading this very website who could do that trick.
So it is not inconceivable that he was just stoked and wanted to say, "hey I did that same trick, Crazy!!" You know?
Either way, none of us know where he was really coming from. I took it one way, and Ryan took it another. Respect to all.
I thank both of them for posting on the website, and hopefully spending all of their cash on The Bloodsucking Company.
PS: Don't mess with Austin Fans.

i'm pretty sure ed is correct. let's not hate on each other, ok?
Posted By: nicholas on April 5th, 2006 at 06:52AM PST
i agree with ed on how comments on the web could be read wrong, and to ad to how "bery" could have been misunderstood, he could have just been joking completely thats how i took it, hence the haha
Posted By: j-town on April 5th, 2006 at 07:27AM PST
Thats a pretty sweet pic, I like the "oldschool" feel of it. Whatever
Posted By: SHMO on April 5th, 2006 at 07:54AM PST
yes it is in fact the church from slaughterhouse.
Posted By: :D on April 5th, 2006 at 07:57AM PST
"i dont wanna get in some fashion war... so yer you got your opinion i got mine" good and evil line goes kickflip some amount of stairs then 3 flip the next. his pants are fuckin hells tight. i'm right everyone else is stupid. end of discussion
Posted By: blake on April 5th, 2006 at 08:10AM PST
does the tightness of austin's jeans matter?
for clarity, i've observed that he wears a moderately flared jean, often tight near the thighs& buttocks; however not always.
people are allowed to vary what they wear from time to time, it's not against the law.
Posted By: nicholas on April 5th, 2006 at 08:33AM PST
Ed's right, don't mess with us Austin fans. We'll tear you apart.
Posted By: anthony on April 5th, 2006 at 08:50AM PST
fuck you guys
Posted By: berry on April 5th, 2006 at 08:53AM PST
maybe berry was just saying he thought it was cool that he could do something that austin could... when i watch a video and see a great skater do something that i have done before i think its pretty awesome
Posted By: sam gillis on April 5th, 2006 at 09:50AM PST
That is a very very cool picture.
Posted By: Big Al on April 5th, 2006 at 09:59AM PST
kool picture, i always wanted to skate one of those things
Posted By: matt on April 5th, 2006 at 11:54AM PST
ok ed ,no more a stone pics ,less war ,,, hahaha.
are you gays ??a stone fans??
Posted By: onirico'? on April 5th, 2006 at 12:30PM PST
out of respect for ed .. ill take it down a notch next time i get a little mad .. it was at like 2 in the morning and i had drank way too much coffee and clearly wasn't thinking too well and didn't realize that it could have been in a joking manner .. but there is still no way in hell, that anyone could touch austin's steez .. by the way ed, the majority of my paycheques go to buying the monster large board and now that i have a new job more money will be coming your way .. unfortunately for you, it is canadian ..
Posted By: ryan on April 5th, 2006 at 12:35PM PST
i remember when i met austin for the first time. he was just moving out to huntington and he came to my little track in wildomar, ca. My neighbor was friends with his mom and told her that i skated, so he and cameron came over to skate but i was busy mowing lawns. But later that day austin came back and met this baggy pants, es, flip kid, and i was stooked. Complete opposites, but i soon changed. Think what you want , but thats the truth.
Posted By: b on April 5th, 2006 at 12:51PM PST
Austin has the smoothest style ever. I think he shows that skateboarding's not just about bringing the most difficult big tricks ever, but bringing smooth style and a fluent of variety. Ive enjoyed every video part from him. I would think it impressive of him if he quite somking though, although im not gonna bitch. Looking forward to the trailer!

You kids are DAMN CRAZY!
Posted By: J-Lay on April 5th, 2006 at 01:52PM PST
i was wearing the same pants as Austin, doing the same trick at the same spot, and typing this. All at the same time.
Posted By: turtle-boy on April 5th, 2006 at 03:01PM PST
I have to side with Ed and Berry on this on. Cool picture though.

Posted By: berry on April 5th, 2006 at 08:22PM PST
Radical manouver performed by Sir austin, the Duke of the stair grinding department. This photograph really captures the essance of the so aptly titeled "nose grind".

The tricks done on thet church in slaughterhouse are wiked-sik
Posted By: mega-licious dillusionised dambu on April 6th, 2006 at 05:12AM PST
I used to like tight pants. but i started wearing corduroy or slim fit levi's and must admit they are really comfortable.
Posted By: Andru on April 6th, 2006 at 06:31AM PST
if you guys are austin fans you'll understand he is just wearing what he likes...who cares what he is wearing as long as he is skating...and as long as he stays super smooth and stylish. Some just need to relax
Posted By: Andru on April 6th, 2006 at 06:35AM PST
thats a sweet how it looks like and old picture...and thats a sweet grind. is that like a church in the background?
Posted By: email@example.com on April 6th, 2006 at 09:18AM PST
austin is smooth. he drives a bmw with rims, this set is in slaughterhouse and many other videos. austin still wears tight pants, he just never wore them that tight, it is a church in the background, and to that berry guy:you did not nose grind this, and no one believes you. and levis are sick. i bought a pair yesterday in chicago. so im really agreeing with andru who can't spell his name. but... toy machine and austin are the best

How the fuck would you know if l did it or not. Just to prove it to you, ill try to get the footage on the site you fuck

Posted By: grif on April 9th, 2006 at 09:55PM PST
This pants thing is really bothering me. Who the fuck cares if you wear tight ass jeans or pants down to your fucking ankles. Either way skateboarding is skateboarding. This is the Toy Machine site where people talk about skateboarding. If you want to talk about fucking pants go hop on some queer pants website and talk about pants.
