    Whats going on people… This guy kills it… no comments…

    my take: it’s not trick selection thats the problem, its pants selection… ask Geetz he’s battled through and won. dope tricks, dope pants, trying times!

    I’ve seen dudes on this site in tight purple pants dressed like freakin court jesters getting the royal comment treatment….

      maybe because this is it’s first day online? Maybe because the people’s opinions on skateboarding that actually matter (the skateboarders) are out doing what this its all about… Skateboarding! 
      Instead of sitting at home on the computer during the sun shinning day  (veiwing male fashion related sites on sperate tab’s) assuming people are also at home on the computer all day, not writing comments just because the selection of his pants? 
      What exactly did geetz ”battle through”? 
      Geetz since day one had kept it real to his style in clothing and skateboarding, which is how and why he has gained his respect in skateboarding. 
      The unbiased skateboard media of New Zealand (this site and its magazine) in my opinion gives all skaters a fair chance reguardless of apperance, from parachute pants to ‘tight purple pants dressed like freakin court jesters’ (which i’m yet to see from this site).As for royal ‘comment treatment’ it seems like you care about the faceless digital praise’s more than this man himself, whom i’m sure is just stoaked to have this page in the first place. In my opinion, this guys skating is great, he’s got a natural style for sure. Tre flip over car? Hell yeah.

      My take; legit.
      Your take; was as gay as the male fashion site’s on your home page
