Recommended Posts

Cab's old. What ever happened to Bill Danforth? He was the ILL disaster slappin' master.

Odd Man Out was Cab's band after The Faction...

 

Mark killed his fiance's sister, the less said about it, the better... actually, anyone remeber the first issue of Thrasher? When it was b/w and still had a newsprint cover... Gator skated a pool naked, he destroyed for a little while and then took a spill leaving a razzberry on his back from his thigh to his shoulder, that was kinda gorry

 

Who remebers the Godoys? Art and Steve the skater twins.. or when Danny Way was a little kid?

what about the Gruber twins?

I remember the first thrasher I saw had Tommy G. on the cover..a purple and yellow cover..photo of him..super young at a demo in Golden Gate park...but I do remember old Skateboarder mags my step bro used to have..all metal boards, tunnel wheels, carving pools barefoot.

How are you going to skate a pool barefoot?!

Gator was good. Anyone remeber the old Steve Olson checkered graphic? I used to draw checkers on everything I owned because of that.

 

jfa, agent orange, gang green,agnostic front, and the infamous DK symbol...

this thread inspired me to look under the dresser in the garage... I found that Madrid Lucero, a Schmitt Stix Lucero street thing (the one with the peace symbols and smiley faces), a Vision John Grigley and a Powell Cab w/ the 'new' dragon and bone-ite... these are just a few of the relics I have laying around the house... somewhere I have an H Street Danny Way (fish shape) w/ trucks and wheels, all in solid condition... I had to lay off for almost a year because of my palms, like I was smuggling grapefruit, and when I came back, the new school had struck, all the kids were doing flip tricks so I just bought a new rig... that was a Plan B board that had a print on the bottom but when I did a board slide I found that the paint was only a thin layer over everslick, and the everslick had a picture of a cop lynching a black boy (like a 7 year old) - that was a bit disturbing...

my first deck, real deck that is, was by a company by the name of URGH! which was an early 90s brasilian company. it was heavy but i was also small back then...goodtimes.

i have an alien workshop spectrum slick, i think its the second logo they had, the kind with the rainbow and the three aliens...a good friend of mine gave it to me and she never did too much damage, so i just keep it for display.

Airborne Peanut Brown (cut like a Zorlac deck, i still got it)

Indys

Yellow SC Slimeballs

yellow rails

 

for some reason, Salba's brother's name is spelled Micke

 

the godoys, mad tattooed and they drew designs too. didn't they have their own company for 50 seconds?

 

does anyone remember a band of all pro skaters called the Committed?

how about 411, the KILLER band with Mario Rubalcaba on drums?

or how about Soda, Caballero's last band?

 

Mark Gator Anthony (Rogowski) was the shit back when, as was John Grigley and Jinx, but Gator sent a letter to Skateboarder or some magazine from behind bars, blaming skateboarding for bringing him to waste someone. a pathetic fall from grace.

 

RIP Jeff Phillips.

 

cleansheets- Johnny Rad and The Jordanaires..

"SHOW ME THOSE RIBBBBBONEEES, NOWWWWWWW!!"

"Urethane, urethane, baby."

 

there was also cruz control, the SC decks that came with the wedge-like riser for intense concave. haha.

 

Bill Danforth? how about Eric Dressen?!

 

"i want it back again, the feeling that i once had"- judge
