Todd Congelliere RISK IT

There were no ramps closer than a days drive from me when I was a kid, so I never got a chance to skate vert growing up. I gravitated to video parts of street skateboarding just ’cause that's all I could really relate to or all i had access to, BUT... more than any video parts i watched to get hyped to go skateboarding was this Todd Congelliere part. Gotta figure something is rad about a vert skater when the way they skate vert can get a kid all fired up to go skate curbs!

Also, if you have Todd's part from the Union video, PLEASE post it on YouTube ASAP. Word up.

Todd did bigspin back Ds on vert before anyone knew what the hell they were.
Funniest thing I ever saw was at one of his first pro contests. They called Todd's name and he just stood there with his tail on the coping. The announcer kept saying, "Go ahead, Todd. You have 45 seconds." But he didn't drop in.
He just stood there ... and then he peed his pants.
He was laughing with this huge stain all over his pants—his board was getting all wet, too. Then a few other people started laughing. Then he took his run all soggy and wet.
Best ever.
