David Gonzales 'Spirit in Black'

Posted by Route One on 14th November 2019

Daveeeed is back! Seven years on from his epic SOTY win and fully recovered from his horrific ankle break shortly after, Flip Skateboards' Medellin connection returns to our screens doing what he does best; full throttle ripping to the heaviest of metal soundtracks!

Sidewalk Magazine's illustrious editor Ben Powell, a man who pretty much lived with Penny in his 90's heyday, once stated that David Gonzales is the greatest natural talent he's ever seen on a board and, with this latest part, he's only cementing this reputation further.

Sadly the flip fifty attempt at El Toro, with that horrific slam that set Insta alight a few weeks back, was as close as he got so don't pin any hopes on that going down but, outside of this one small disappointment, it's a ripride of 'pedal to the metal' shredding right from the moment those first Lamb of God riffs kick in. Daveeeed definitely went buck for this one!
