sure they rock, but this topic is about old school!

I agree, Franz is awesome to watch, he combines so many different styles.

I think you have to define "old school" for those of us relatively new to the scene. Does it refer to a bygone age of the sport, or more to a style of riding. Enlighten us T-obi wan.

I would define old school like this:

Boardoffs
Onefoots
Transitions
Any fun style stuff (like riding on the board with just your hands on it etc)
Rotations hooked

Or basically anything hooked, besides wave or kiteloops.

I remember seeing a really cool video of Lishai Miller. Doing all sorts of board offs and rotations about 6 years ago. Haven't seen much of him lately but I still remember that video.

Oldschool.....definition...... Not just boardoffs.

Lou was oldschool when it was new school whatever........

I still think the best vid of all time time is flash drinkin the coconut 30ft up with the back cam.

Some of those older videos are still my fav. All this handlepass stuff is getting rather old.....
