Zaturdays With Zitzer: The Trick formerly known as...

Things are always changing, for better or worse, and over the course of my 30+ years on the board, along with deck shapes, trick trends, outfit fads, media consumption habits, and the amount of free public parks at our disposal, there has been another significant shift in skateboarding, and it relates to the names we call our maneuvers.

#TBT: Heath Kirchart - Sight Unseen

There’s a pretty small handful of video parts that could be in the running for the Greatest of All Time. Duffy in Questionable, Dylan Rieder’s Gravis Part, and Gonz in Video Days come to mind. Heath Kirchart’s part from Sight Unseen is another one that’s a shoe-in for the top three.

I’ve never been able to substantiate the rumor, but word around the street course was that Ty Evans filmed the part, edited the part, and then held the part ransom until someone was willing to pony up 10 grand for it. Not sure about that one, but either way, it was worth it for us if TWS came through. Sadly however, the stunts Heath put down here contribute to his not being a pro skateboarder anymore. He painted himself right into the proverbial corner. And once he added Mind Field to the resume we were left with an exceptionally amazing dude that felt he’d maxed himself out. Can you blame him?
