    CHRISTIAN HOSOI is finally getting out of PRISON

    http://www.crailtap.com/c3/newrandoms/hosoi4.jpg'>

    a few years back christian hosoi (80's skateboarding superstar, for those that don't know) was locked up for drug trafficking in hawaii (the island of honolulu to be exact). well, according to the oh so reliable news resource that is [url=http://www.crailtap.com]crailtap[/url] he went before the parole board, and they decided to let him out next wednesday. apparently crimes against fashion aren't grounds for extending a sentence, and for that the world is thankful.

    how they could lock up someone that did dope rocket airs i'll never know.

    i was reading in transworld (i think) that christian's dad and a bunch of skate heads build a backyard vert ramp for holmes to rip when he gets home. companies will be throwing free product at him when he gets home no doubt

    shit yeah. even footage of him doing an axle stall would be enough to earn a spot on the next 411 openers.

    hosoi was one of the illest from that era. god that takes me back...thrasher, suicidal tendencies, nintendo, the bones brigade, giant decks like my reese simpson schmitt stix, stealing sticker hang tags off of gotcha, o.p. and quicksilver clothes from macy's for the room, my school books, and my deck.

    Christian Hosoi was one of those rare skaters that had (and hopefully will still have) style for days. I had so may of his pics on my wall that I tore out of Trasher and the like.

    I'm buying these . Maybe some of the funk will rub off on me.
