Old for some, not for me this news. I was in MalmÃ¶, Sweden this year for the Quiksilver Bowlriders 2008 finals which was plain and simply fantastic even just to watch (I usually don’t like going to contests to sit there for hours watching other people skate, sort of is against the reason I like to skate…) and one of the skaters that made a big impression on just about everybody there was the 17-year old Aaron â€˜Jawsâ€™ Homoki.
He mixes old and new school skating and makes it look like skating should be in my opinion – raw and fun to watch. Blunt to kickflip on 10 foot banks or a McTwist in the deepend of a concrete bowl without any pads? You got it, he’s damn good…have a look at this promo video from IPath and I hope you get the chance to see him live. It was really funny to watch him take second place in MalmÃ¶. No big attitude, he was just stoked and kept repeating “this is just awesome…”.
