Jeff Dechesare 'Wait For It'

Posted by Route One on 15th February 2018

You have to feel a little sorry for Jeff Dechesare, you really do. When it comes to skateboarding, the two main factors involved are the ability to do tricks and, more importantly, style whilst doing them. Many people throughout the years have made very successful careers having very little ability to do tricks but just oozing style out of every pore.

Your boy Jeff however? The poor lad sits at completely the other end of the spectrum. There is no denying his ability; truth be told he's doing tricks of insane difficulty down massive gaps that 99.9% of the world's best pro's could never imagine doing. Unfortunately the old adage of "just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should" rings especially true here and no matter how bonkers this clip gets (and boy does it get well and truly mental), you just can't help thinking you'd rather be watching a nice Kenny Anderson backtail or even a Gino Iannucci push.

We've gotta be fair to the lad though; there are absolutely no rules in skateboarding and although he's never likely to get hooked up by anyone legit outside of Grizzly Grip, you can't front on the stuff he's doing. He obviously loves skateboarding and that's all that matters. He's also inspiring young kids to pick up a board and you have to give him his dues for that, just hopefully they're not all gonna grow up thinking quadruple flips are acceptable behaviour!
