Tampa Pro 2012 Finals and Best Trick

Lil’ Wayne scares me. The blank strung out look reminds me of some schizophrenic people I’ve served at a restaurant before. You can tell how many drugs he’s on by the number of sparkles in his eyes. But really, I just don’t understand his connection to skateboarding besides that he is a famous person who tries to. Kind of like Paris Hilton was like, “I’m going to to be a Model“, or when she was like, “I’m going to to be an Actress“, or when she was like ” I’m going to be a Singer“. Apparently I’m not the only person noticing this weird branding issue either, here are the top comments for this video:

Anyway, aside from Weezy’s distracting introduction, this is a pretty sweet video. Here’s what RideChannel on Youtube posted about it:

“What a day of mindblowing skateboarding topped off by Weezy on lurk out. Italo Romano, Nyjah Huston, Kyle Berard, Chris Cole, Manny Santiago, Eric Koston, Ishod Wair, Shane O’Neil, Billy Marks, Ryan Sheckler, Matt Bennett, Leo Romero, Porpe, The Moat Race, Mike Vallely, Brian Schaefer, Ryan Clements, James Craig, Chris Cole again and more ripping at the Tampa Pro 2012 Finals. Damn! Oh, and Sean Malto’s fakie 5-0 fakie flip out? Video part tricks in contest runs.”

    I think Lil’ Wayne is just living life the way his financial means allow. Music is a job, but he loves skateboarding… apparently. I’m not a fan, but I can’t say I’d handle things any differently if I were in his position with his interests.

    Nice reminder of why I gave up skateboarding, oh about 30 years ago!
