Age: 16

This morning, I checked out Matt Zicopula's footy for this month's Sponsor Me Video Review, and what a great bunch of film it is! Matt's got some nice tricks stacked up in this sucker, including stellar hardflips and frontside flips, as well as a nice ender: a switch frontside flip down a grass gap.
Matt, the one thing I noticed after watching your footy is that you didn't have much in the way of rail and ledge shredding. While it's not essential, I think it will help diversify the segments that you've put together. Potential sponsors always like to see that you can skate a wide array of terrain, and tearing up the local rail and ledge is a definite plus. You may even want to drop some tranny in here and there to really light some fires.
I liked your run with the switch backside 180, 360 flip, nollie flip down the gap, and would have liked to have seen more connected lines incorporating your hammer arsenal. Don't forget, consistency and good lines are always where it's at...not to mention they are fun to watch and usually tend to be memorable. That being said, you may want to consider linking up some tricks in your next vid.
All in all, your footy is solid, and with some rail jammers and consistent lines, you could command some attention from the couch. Keep it comin' and enjoy your brand spankin' new Emerica kicks! Stay Gold.--Timothy Nickloff, Emerica Sales Manager

    Proud2beanEmerican's Emeritar Proud2beanEmerican Posted:
  28. Man, let me tell you something. This kid is fucking RIPPAGE! His tricks were solid like cheese biscuits. The only thing I would of liked to see was more speed. Speed makes any trick look, at least, fifty times better. Oh yeah, he also has a stupid last name that I can't pronounce. But besides all that he is great.

    thatonekid's Emeritar thatonekid Posted:
  55. sometimes when you're lacking key elements to a good part you make up for it. he just needs to skate faster aand explore bigger things. other than that his part was almost decent.

    thatonekid's Emeritar thatonekid Posted:
  56. his tre's looked realy low and he was slow. he needed way more footage to.

    baker2727's Emeritar baker2727 Posted:

Fuck the haters. Long Island Represent

    JFK's Emeritar JFK Posted:
  77. How can a kid get on the emerica website and you say he is "ok"? In order to get big you have to have coverage. And judging from matt winning game of skate and being on here just tells you he will be big one day.

  86. almost everyone on here is all talk, but got nothing else. Its pretty gay when skaters go hating on other skaters...very gay. There's no what skating was...now its just what skating "is".

    Good video anyways...everythings smooth...some tough tricks down some sweet gaps too. I think that 360 flip was personally pretty sweet also, concidering i've never seen one look like that...so it gives you style points for looking different then everyone else's 360 flip..

    SquidwardMcDickfingas's Emeritar SquidwardMcDickfingas Posted:
  95. damn, that was clean fo real tho. What i liked the most tho was that semi-flip or hardflip, i think it was a semi flip because it didn't go up it went like a backwards varial. I really like that switch bs 180, it was all late thats why i liked it.

    I dont think you guys really know what you need more speed on. When you do your lines you need tons of speed, not so much when you go off of stairs. When you got fast lines it shows you can control your board and that you are consistent.

    Really the only thing i can say to this guy is grind, thats all you need, you got lines, you got stairs and drops, only thing really is grinds. all in all, this is a tight ass video.

    RandomHero's Emeritar RandomHero Posted:
