Legends Never Die R.I.P. Fausto Vitello

It's been 5 years today since the co-founder of Independent Trucks and Thrasher Magazine left this Earth. Fausto, I just read, learned English by listening to radio broadcasts of S.F. Giants games. Do a slappy for Fausto today. 1946-2006. Legends never die.

Sunday's Slappy

A grainy shot from Friday evening's rainy slappy session will have to suffice for this Sunday's slappy thanks to a car with a bad fuel pump. Otherwise I would have spent my 39th birthday doing what I did on my 38th. Skateboarding. I did receive a new camera this year though so be on the lookout for better quality photographs as well as some special features that I'm working on such as interviews with up and coming rippers in the local area, reader submitted photos, and skateboarding from everywhere I can find it.

Big Ketchup

Ohio's Mark Heintzman and Assault Skateboards! A classic shape with double kick and Assault's Kreep concave. Sure to be big with collectors and skaters. I recommend you buy 2 and have one to ride and one to display.
