    And I had no idea that you could claim the fame by firsting a thread.

    but yeah... anyone who use to skate and is their mid-twenties-or-later
    should already know about gator. He was truly a skate God.

    you should check the vice article.

    It talks about how all the Dogtown guys were hippies that were all about
    Surfing on the streets instead of screaming down hills shouting Skate or Die!!!

    Haha, that article pretty much says that those dogtown guys were some posers.... in a way. I met Stacy Peralta a while back, he came to the skate park close to my house.

    I'm not a skater, but I'll end up watching both of those movies. I read the article in WYWS a while back about dogtown.

    I wonder what ever happend to Natas ???

    The article doesn't really call them posers,
    but I dont think that they Invented skating as we know it.
    Guys like The original Bones Brigade, the Vision team, the Santa Cruz guys,
    they were the ones that inspired my generation of skaters.
    They pushed it to where it is. Slam City Jam!

    sma was just another way to package santa cruz products.
    I just figured that he'd be working the the offices now a days.

    I honestly think that Natas' street section of the wheels of fire video is some of the best shit EVER FILMED!
