there's a trick you don't see every day...

Dec 21, 2006 Mart

Too bad the angle sucks balls, there's absolutely no perception of height in this shot

Dec 21, 2006 AnthoFlex

I duno about the angle sucking balls, but hmmm....Would it be ok if i get a different angle of this and repost it (and have it over this?) like i mean, Instead of this one, the other pic....or sumthing...

Oh shit, gotta go, teacher coming

Dec 21, 2006 Rynasty

I believe this is called a christ makio, but cool picture still. Those little rails would be so fun to mess around on.

Dec 21, 2006 Slidey

Thats so true Ryan, I would try a backside to backwards cheesgrater to 270 frontside on that. or a frontside to cheesegrater to backslide. or a unity to savanaagh. or even harder tricks that i know i cant do :D

Dec 21, 2006 Slidey

Yay for switch-ups!

Dec 21, 2006 snikas

yo thats awsome. nice

Dec 21, 2006 Kru

I agree about the angle. It is quite lame. Nice style though.

Dec 22, 2006 AnthoFlex

Ok, thank you for the comments on the grind but imma put my foot down...All of you, stop hating on the angle, i dunt see any of your stuff up here

Dec 22, 2006 SonicSoaper

YAY! I wanted to see this up here.

Dec 22, 2006 Kru

I don't have a camera or I'd of been way ahead .

Dec 22, 2006 snikas

sik grind man

Dec 23, 2006 Mart

You forget that I have three pictures up on here, Antho. And that you've commented on two of them

Dec 23, 2006 AnthoFlex

Yea, i know Mart, cause those two pix are hot, but IF you couldnt tell, "All of you, stop hating on the angle, i dunt see any of your stuff up here was aimed towards Kru and other people to think that. It wasnt aimed towards you cause you and the hate crew cant resist looking for things that are negative to say about it ;)

So dunt take my last comment offensivley cause it wasnt aimed at you

Dec 23, 2006 AnthoFlex

and you technically didnt say anything bad about the grind....For all i know your comment could just mean Nice, grind....but do you have another angle of it? Thats the way i see it

But its cool though, i have agreed to take a better angle of this shot....but its gonna have to wait until Christmas, thats when i get my new camera! yay!

Dec 23, 2006 Slidey

Grr... Camera... I'm so jealous lol

Dec 23, 2006 Mart

Last I heard, 'all of you' doesn't indicate that you're addressing one person in particular. Besides, don't take it personally cause you're not the one at fault here; it's Dario ;)

Whilst another angle of this grind would be alright, it wouldn't be featured; there's no point in featuring two photos of the same grind at the same spot

Dec 23, 2006 AnthoFlex

Dude, leave Dario out of this, im going to geet another pic to replace this one (replace! thats the word i was looking for! xP) So yea, my new Sole Christ will go over this one

And imma take it in a new spot, this rail isnt exactly the HIGHEST....if you know what i mean, so yea....i'll go to a higher spot...If my new camera (hopefully) has sequenceing, then i'll submit that...IF it looks good enough

Dec 23, 2006 SonicSoaper

All I'm going to say is the replacement is sounding like it's going to be good.

Dec 25, 2006 matrix8967

nice grind...i'm still getting used to my sole plate...i havn't used it as much...it's kind of forign (sp)


Dec 25, 2006 Mart

Holy Christ what are you, his girlfriend? The only problem I have with this picture is the angle and, since Dario took the picture, I don't see what the problem is with saying he's the reason I don't like it. Chill out

Dec 25, 2006 AnthoFlex

Fine fine, i only said to leave him out cause you guys have had multiple wars in the past, i didnt wanna see that again

Merry Christmas ;)

Dec 27, 2006 Kile

Wicked trick man, maybe when you come down we can shoot some footage. You can hit my 50 footer lol


Jan 7, 2007 snikas

kyle i thuht when we measured it it was olny 40ft. but ? nice trick AnthoFlex

Jan 7, 2007 SonicSoaper

He kinda looks a little bit like Jesus in this pic. The way his hands are looks like when Jesus does that pointy thing that shows where Heaven and Hell are.

Jan 7, 2007 AnthoFlex

Well it IS a Sole Christ.....

Wow, u dunno how many times i get the "You look like Jesus" comment

Jan 7, 2007 snikas


Jan 7, 2007 snikas

Jesus Rocks. iwonder if Jesus would soap

Jan 7, 2007 snikas

Hey AnthoFlex do you know were i could get a pair of broadsides. iv been lookin for about a year and havent found anything

Jan 7, 2007 Mart

...Christ Makio, Antho

Jan 7, 2007 snikas

nice angle

Jan 7, 2007 SonicSoaper

If J.C. soaped, he wouldn't even need the shoes. He'd just draw the soap logo onto his feet and he'd be off.

Jan 7, 2007 SonicSoaper

He can call the trick whatever he wants, like when people call plasma grenades stickies in Halo.

Jan 7, 2007 snikas


Jan 7, 2007 AnthoFlex

Thanx SonicSoaper but yes, the correct term (Now that i've been recently informed) is indeed a Christ Makio. BUT, when i Soap, im going to continue to call it a Sole Christ...i dunno, i got used to it

Jan 7, 2007 snikas

hey man were can i get those shoes

Jan 8, 2007 snikas

do they still sell them in size 11s by any chance

Jan 8, 2007 SonicSoaper

Yeah, you get used to names you make up.

Jan 8, 2007 snikas

Jesus is a sick nick name

Jan 8, 2007 Kile

Yo it's going down, Jesus would beat anyone in Soap end of Story.

Jan 8, 2007 snikas

Jesus soaping! that would be a kick-ass pic. hey AnthoFlex WERE DID YOU GET THOSE SHOES.i wanna piar bad

Jan 8, 2007 AnthoFlex

Im Jesus remember? I thought of the shoes and they were on my feet

Jan 8, 2007 SonicSoaper

Renny's Jesus? Then it's true. Jesus lives in New York. TAKE THAT NEW JERSEY!*

*Just kidding. I love you Jersey people.

Jan 9, 2007 snikas

Jan 9, 2007 Mart

I removed them. These comments pages aren't chatrooms; any comments not related to the picture or just general chatty bollocks will be removed

Jan 9, 2007 AnthoFlex

Thanx Mart, i appreciate it

Jan 26, 2007 AnthoFlex

God i hate those fucking pants....geez

Jan 26, 2007 SonicSoaper

I think they look okay, except for the pockets being out-turned. Why do you hate them, too baggy or are they hugging your boys?

Jan 26, 2007 AnthoFlex

The pockets....Right where tboth pockets are, they got ripped so the pockets can come straight outta the pants.....i always gotta tuck them back in

as a matter of fact, im wearing those freaking pants now :p

Jan 26, 2007 matrix8967

i can't stand tight pants...my rule is, If i can count 3 cross laces on my shoes, I don't wear the pants...my fav. is old school Jnco's...I wore Jnco's and soaps like mad back in the day.


Jan 26, 2007 SonicSoaper

I'll reply to both comments, starting with Antho's first.

I see you took the Hypocritic Oath. XD

With me, I have one pair of tight pants that are actually okay and anotherpair that looks like I stole them from my sister. Seriously, you can't see shit when you're looking for pants in Hot Topic. The only reason I wearthem is because my girlfriend likes it when I wear clothes likeBillie Joe Armstrong from Green Day, and even then my Torches are out of the equation and it's back to my first loves, the old black Chuck Taylor high tops.

Jan 26, 2007 SonicSoaper

The one's I have now are the special edition Jackass 2 ones.

Jan 26, 2007 RamenRadio

God I love those shoes. Eh, angle is OKAY, but not bad. I can't do it lol

Jan 26, 2007 AnthoFlex

Ur girl is fucking wierd then.....She better make up for making you wear wierd shit with some...... fun

Jan 26, 2007 SonicSoaper

You bet she does Renny. >:)

Jan 26, 2007 RamenRadio

XD Because of the pants, or the chucks Renny?

Jan 26, 2007 AnthoFlex


Jan 26, 2007 SonicSoaper

They don't call me A.J. Hammer for nothing!

Feb 6, 2007 AnthoFlex

Im not gonna start another fight here, but there is perception of height here....

Look at the floor, Where the grass is (even lower than the concrete), and look at the concrete ledge.

That rail is a little over knee-high...and a few of the other rails in that park (9 in total) are even higher than that rail....but they arent straight like this one.

Feb 6, 2007 SonicSoaper

Oh sweet! I think I could definately hit this rail then.

Mar 27, 2007 mets603412

demo spot i was grinding on those rails with u and travis

Mar 27, 2007 Mart

Sorry dude, but just because there are things in the background that are lower than the rail doesn't mean that you can perceive how tall the rail is. The rail is only running along one dimension in this picture; depth. There's no vertical information when it comes to the rail, thus it's impossible to judge how high it is from this angle

Mar 27, 2007 AnthoFlex

Lol, ok dude

i think u chould just imagine kinda like photoshopping with your head and move me onto the floor....

but that doesnt always work

Apr 4, 2007 SonicSoaper

That and he was there so he can pretty much tell you what height the rail is.

Apr 4, 2007 Mart

I'm aware of that, thanks, but that's not the point I'm trying to make

There are two criteria for sports photos; the trick and the composition. The trick in this instance is of such a standard that it is severely let down by the composition. If this was just a frontside or something along those lines, I wouldn't specifically care so much about the angle because the whole photo would suck

I appreciate the notion that Dario was being creative when taking this instead of taking a straight shot at it, and I'm not knocking that; from a purely photographic point of view, this is not a good picture because it does not accurately convey the subject matter in all its glory. This rail may be knee-high or whatever, but I'd much rather see it for myself than have to rely on someone telling me about it to make up for poor composition. If you extrapolate that logic to a far grander scale, you could say that there's no need for a photo because Antho could tell us that he hit a Christ Makio, on a knee high rail, in the middle of the night whilst wearing some funky items of clothing, right?

The whole point of taking a shot of a grind something is to showcase it. Composition is just as, if not more, important than the grind itself; fantastic composition can make the simplest of grinds look sick and, conversely, whack photography technique can ruin something amazing

Very nice Mart I couldn't have said it better. See how he explained it and didn't get mad. That's how it should be here.

Apr 1, 2008 wyattpeterson
