"Had the most fun, definitely watchin' Nelson. He's just the smoothest, sickest rider. Ever." - Randall Harris circa 1998 filming for MayDay.
Nelson has been one of my favorite riders ever since I saw HIT IT! back in '96. He's one of only a handful of riders who truly possess their own style and stand out among everyone else.
Nelson is, without question, a pioneer. For me, one of his greatest accomplishments was Double Up. There was never before a company like Double Up. The company embodied free thinking, focused on making the sport look good and of course having FUN. Just like Greg himself, the company stood out by doing things uniquely.
To anybody that's new to the sport: You need to check out Greg's riding in MayDay (http://www.boardflix.com/product_inf...roducts_id=197
). If a picture is worth a thousand words, at thirty frames per second Nelson's section speaks volumes.
