May 2007[edit]

Is he even still pro? 99DBSIMLR 13:23, 25 May 2007 (UTC) He was pro in 2006, I saw him in some pro comp on ESPN, I think he's still pro. 58.174.227.25 08:32, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

As of August 2014, he is sponsored, but is technically not a professional skateboarder.--Soulparadox (talk) 14:28, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

Re-write, December 2012[edit]

I actually PROD'd this for deletion thinking there was no way we could build an article without major WP:BLP violations. But having gone through the available sources, there's actually more than enough to substantiate an article and so I've rewritten it, effectively from scratch. This is an obvious case of WP:NOTTEMP, though an argument could be made that he's well on his way to being currently notable again anyway. Stalwart111 00:17, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

Also, if anyone reading this has a copy of Issue #185 of SLAM Skateboarding Magazine (December 2011), please let me know. Stalwart111 00:54, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

Competition date and results clarification[edit]

It would be a significant improvement to this article if anybody with records of the competitions to add in details of dates, locations, results etc.

Much of the information here so far has been gleaned from the World Cup Skating archive but that only goes back to 1999. Ideallly, somebody with old Vert almanacs would do well to complete this section.

Yeah, would be great. I posted a similar request here about the same thing. Happy to talk to anyone about how we might cite such sources if they can be found. Stalwart111 23:21, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
I have included content since articles have been published after the release of the documentary, but there are still no substantial sources for the contest section unfortunately.--Soulparadox (talk) 14:28, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

Birth date[edit]

I have removed the birth date and have left the year, as the latter can be verified with media articles published this year. The citation tags for the birth date were over one year old, so it seemed appropriate; however, please reinstate the date if new sources are published.--Soulparadox (talk) 14:28, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
