Oh aye, and Lintell is on Real and rightly regarded as one of the best British skater’s of his generation. With that in mind, somebody doing arguably bigger/harder stuff now* should be at least worthy of having their name chucked into a niche online chat about people who’ve killed it this year.
That said, Hinson’s problem is two fold. Firstly he isn’t cool. Which, as we all know, is the biggest obstacle in skating - if you’re not down with the right people you’re pissing against the wind from day one.
Secondly, his footage is always out of date by the time he releases it. His Rugged Kingdom part for
Darkstar in March was sick, thing is he’s two parts further along with his filming. Whatever tricks were in that he’d already one upped them at least twice by the time that came out.
*Edit: Not saying Hinson is better than Lintell - obvs not. Lintell has possibly my fav style other than MJ/Gustav and his trick selection is second to none. Was talking in regards to “double kink ten years ago.”
