Ok NS, I know it’s still the middle of summer but I feel a lot of y’all have already been chatting about this so I figured I’d get the thread rolling now. Below I’ve made a couple predictions, many are obvious but some may have you thinking “hey now… that would be pretty butter”.
**drop any predictions, opinions, wishes, recipes, hopes, dreams, haiku’s or clips that you think supports your idea of what will be trendy this year :D **
————--official forecast according to me (young_patty) below :
*things looking very skate inspired (go figure), be on the look out for everyone and their mom making VX street edits.
*we saw the rise of many homegrown edits, crews and premiers last year. With arsenic, Zoot and Jet blowing up the organic film format I’m thinking this year a lot more people will be focusing on full parts and projects rather than the clip to insta format we’ve seen dominate the past.
(If not then god have mercy on our souls)
*based on hood this year and the shit I liked skiing during the season I’m thinking we’re gonna see a lot more wallies, pole jams and tap features in edits. Maybe a stronger focus on the DIY aspect.
*PUNK ASETHIC IS BACK, HESH 4 LIFE
*dark colors and earth tones again. Big pants, patchwork, homemade everything, 90’s inspired color ways, and as usual: whatever skating/snowboarding just did a year or two ago.
*50-50 tricks are still cool, gaps to rails have been popping off as well, weirdo flips along with unusual axis’ and rotations will be big this year in and out of comps.
*More and more street skiers will turn to spots that AREN’T handrails (gaps, ledges, pads, drops etc)- we’ve seen that in years past but I think this year will be a bigger split away.
~~as usual these are just predictions made by me (young_patty) based on what I think is cool/ where I genuinely see skiing going.
if you have anything you’d like to add, argue, disprove, talk down on, pretend you already knew of/started (lol as if), highlight, gaslight or infer about please add to the thread
See you in a few months y’all!
