I know it's like an ancient dark art that very few practice anymore. When I was a kid I would make fun of Rodney Mullen (Dude I was 13 at the time and it was the late 80s early 90s). Now I'm full on into it. Anyone else out there.

I personally am not into the freestyle thing, however I do know a couple of pro's that are.  Check out Tommy Harward and Sean Burke.  Both are very good.

They are good. I've also been getting into guys like Whitter Cheng, and Mike Osterman. Cheng has a really aggressive approach to freestyle.

Do you class what Gou Miyagi, Chopper and the Osaka spatulas are doing as freestyle.
I kinda think it's not really in the traditional sense, but it does owe a lot to it.

Personally I love it.

I dig Gou. I almost want to call what him, Kilian Martin, Frank Lavallee, and Rodney Mullens newer stuff a hybrid style that mixes elements of old school freestyle with street style. Once I've been back on the board again for about a year I plan on going about that same route.

Here are a few videos:

FOR SURE! after injuries and surgeries and you still can't stop skating, it seems to be the way to go. you have to release all that pent up creativity on a board somehow right?

It's kind of ironic you say that. I started freestyle skating after a 20 year break from skating. I fell doing a Primo Stand and got a distal radius fracture that put 2 plates and 5 screws in my wrist.
