Deconstructing the NBD machine that is Dalton Jones
If you were to watch Dalton Jones' skating for the first time, right away you'd notice his unique approach to skateboard riding. There's no question that his skating looks exceptional, but what really stands out to us is his choice of tricks. We hesitate to say 'choice of tricks', because most people couldn't just choose to do them. Dalton, however, is not most people. He is a NBD machine.
Nearly everything he does has a sex change, an extra rotation, or a shove-it in or out involved. His skating needs a few views to fully understand what is going on. We decided to gif some of our favorite tricks of his to study them, and figure out just what he is doing.
