Jeff Kendall-Streets on Fire

Riding a beat up kit and just killing it with his unique style, the one and only Jeff Kendall.

Craig Johnson - Speed Freaks

In 1985, I can't recall anything more evil than Zorlac's Craig Johnson and John Gibson decks with the Pushead graphics. The head-high pogo to rock-and-roll at 1:40-1:42 in this video comes pretty close though.

Curb Killer: Assault Skates Ricky Winsor

60mm 95a NOS OJ Street Razor from Marc's Board Shop. I'm a big fan of "street formula" wheels if that means that they are 92a to 95a.

The Assault Skateboards Ricky Winsor and OJ Street Razors, one of my favorite set ups. This board pairs well with OJ Wheels.

Butter Bean Rolling on Hot Juice!

60mm 78a OJ Hot Juice wheels sitting on 11.25" of Tracker Dart.

I read the other day that half of the fun of skating can be tinkering with your set up and getting it tuned in. I agree. But the most rewarding part is riding it.

Slappy Saturday Returns

A break in the winter weather provided a chance to pitch a few curb scratchers on this Saturday afternoon. Thanks to Murph at CDS Skate Shop for the grip tape!

The Deckcrafters Butter Bean is a curb yacht! Even a 9" deck looked like a pinner after riding the Bean all day.

Butter Beans and Watermelon Seeds

The DECKCRAFTERS "Butter Bean" is just about ready to roll. Sitting on Tracker 219mm Dart trucks and OJ Street Razor 60mm 95a NOS wheels from Marc's Board Shop.

The long view. This board is 14" wide by 36" long with a 14" wheelbase! Skateboarding may never be the same for me.

Wide In The Streets, Running, Running...

The DECKCRAFTERS Butter Bean next to a 7.75" deck.

The 14" x 36" dwarfs the standard popsicle stick. I could use a whole deck as a set of risers and rails!

The view from above!

Lonnie Toft and the Outrageous Eight

"Sometime in approx. 1972, Toft and his brother concieved the idea for the first 8 wheeled skateboard. The first one was made from unfinished plywood, clay wheels and roller skate trucks. By 1976 the design had progressed to a 20" x 28" deck, Sims wheels and Bennet trucks. The deck was finished with shag carpetting, outragoues engraving and hand-painted Lonnie Toft trademarks.When Sims finally released the Lonnie Toft model 8-wheeler, the first production 8 wheeler ever, it was 13.4" x 29", .425" thick made from Canadian rock maple laminate with graphite. The width at the tail was 12.9", the kick lift 1.05" and it weighed 4.5 lbs."
