Mikey Wright // Root - video

Stu Nettle
Swellnet Dispatch

Orright, it's Mikey Wright. The black sheep of the Wright clan further darkens his name with another edit full of attitood. In the same vein as his last clip, Root has Mikey laying rail, busting air, and showing us the hairy side of his middle finger, all while Lemmy Kilmister serenades from the stage.

It's short, sharp, and loud.

Those front foot pads seem to be gaining traction.

That was the best clip and soundtrack I've seen for a while
And the ATHLETICISM WOW. (bait set)
He's got his front threes on lock.
And the mullet, well
Keep that sort of clip coming and a subscription is not too far away

Perhaps it was just the location, but the way he approaches his turns reminds me a lot of Taj.

Great wipeout section at the end too!

Man that kids got some energy! Spectacular clip... a real contrast to the Kelly Slater vid which I also enjoyed for different reasons. It's amazing how Owen and Tyler seem to hold themselves so differently.
