Rarely Seen

I've been re-learning frontside curb slappies without grabbing the board. This blur was snapped back in 1989 or so at the now defunct City National curb spot.

The lot was full of these curbs and you could do boardslides for days. They don't make curbs, or bony knees, like they used to.

Me and Cheese circa 1988


Yes, the Vision Street Wear suede hi has been reissued.

Zig Zagger Re-Revisited

The Zig Zagger by Krooked is one of the best boards I've ever ridden. Here is a clip from today's session.

Then and Now and Every Now and Again



20 years of non compliance has made me rebellious to a fault. The top photo was snapped in or around 1989. I was riding a Santa Cruz Tom Knox with Thunder Trucks and some OJ Street Razors. The backwards ball cap ala Steve Saiz, the cargo pants, Mess's Thrasher sweatshirt, and those white hi top Reeboks all scream "Late 80's!!!"
The bottom pic was shot in August of 2008. I've lost the hat and the hi tops but the no comply still is still a favorite.

9x32 "Knox" Shape Deck by Eastbilt



Big Ups to Eastbilt! This was delivered just a few days after I placed my order. This is a Tom Knox type shape and I can't wait to set this up and hit the park.

Zig Zagger + Slab = Fun



It's a pretty simple formula. The Zig Zagger by Krooked is now set up with Indy trucks (149's) and 85a 60mm Rat Bones. This set up is perfect for street skating. Thanks Marc! Photos by Emily Hope.
