I always thought it was funny how everyone labeled Penny the king of the lazy natural style and never brought up Stranger.  I can't think of a bad thing he ever did.  I think the first actual video I saw of him was the old Spitfire video.  I got so psyched on him and Coco Santiago.  Goddamn, what ever happened to Coco?

Backlips in the middle of ledges. Now go look at Gino's backlip at Flushing Meadows in Yeah Right, you can see where the style influence comes from.

Stranger can't be faulted, innovative, first to really Pop shuv it's and make a lot of tricks seem legitimate, unchanging style, Anti Hero seems to be doing well. So in conclusion good on and off the board.

only pop shuv i've ever seen of his was in tent city over a skatepark hip.  i don't recall any in skypager or the spitfire video.  know where i can see one?

i heard that at one point anti hero was deluxe's best selling brand.  hope so.

anti hero is my favorite company and generally stranger boards have my favorite shapes and sizes so its always a no brainer on what board to buy unless there is a similar cardiel. vans should have him full on for sure too. i'm not going to lie either, i started wearing green shirts and brown pants after watching anti hero videos when i first really started getting into skating a few year ago. hell i even started rising extremely loose trucks too when i first really started getting into skating because stranger did

Damn,

I've said it before and I'll say it again.  if you can't perform in front of a camera, then why do you think you are worthy of earning an income off skateboarding.  What kid really cares about this guy?  Where and when was his last part?  How much of an impact did it make?  The answer:  NONE!


If a tree falls in the woods and no body's there to hear it........

I'm sure he'll look at this post and go "damn it, I gotta film a part for this spoiled brat on the net cause he matters"!

he was kind of a loner. but yes he would come skate embarcadero all the time. i love his style more than anything. hope he is doing well. i kinda miss the dirt bag.

when did he get so damn good?  i know the front board was milestone, but other than that his footage in sick boyz and  speedfreaks doesn't really stand out for the time. 

what about in fucktatrds when he skate benicia? that kickflip straight over one of the banks is definitly one of the best ever.

His part in sickboys is a classic. I saw it a year after it was made and it was top notch for a while. Kids will never know cause he didn't care to go out and film everything. You guys missed out on a great but I'm sure he doesn't care. Real heads know.

something that alot of younger dudes dont understand is that there are some people who dont need to put out footage all the time and still be pro. kenny hughes has only one full length part, but if you see him skate in person youll know why he's pro. same with julien stranger. some dudes just got it, but maybe dont care to film it all.

impact?  you fucking idiot.  it's skateboarding.  "if a tree falls".  think about that in regards to your life and how you never can amount to anything no matter how hard you try and why it matters anyways.  now end your life.

Saw him early 90's skating black rock with tommy g. filming during lunch hour rush, dude was just carving around everyone, would hit the ledge then pop out and carve around a random buisness person. I was bumping in too people just watching him...tommy was filming so that footy is out there somewhere....

He's earned the right to skate how and when he likes for a living and not have to worry about having a filmer. Who wouldn't want that...

I use to see him at the Almeda skatepark with his girlfriend on early am sessions (I am talking 9 am type stuff). thigh high switch flips over the one hip there and just all around cruising and ripping style. He was always stand offish but not in a dick head way, he would say hi and that was about it.

He is and always shall be one of my favorite skateboarders, hating him is just plan dumb, show me one bit of bad footage, it doesn't exist and many pros could learn a lesson from that.

Anti Hero changed skateboarding in a lot of ways, along with the east coast explosion in the mid 90's it made skateboarding made to me again the same way it did in the mid 80's, it made me not ashamed to be a skater like I was because of the early 90's.

  I had those shoes.


  Mr. Stranger might not be mr. popular, but he ruled. Example, thrasher cover from the early 90's with him backside disaster sliding the ledge coming out of the lowest story of the bus terminal in downtown SF. Burley, he had to clear 3 or 4 steps off the end of the ledge if I recall correctly.

  This shirt is old and worn, but I can't get rid of it,

He's active with his company and always touring and always skating. He's still one of the harderst working skaters who doesn't have media exposure.

And, yes, the kids don't care. He's more popular with older skaters who still seem to buy his board, thus justifying the existence of a signature deck (if legacy wasn't enough).

That syringe graphic is my favorite skate graphic of all time.

  FUCK YES.

  I remember looking at that ledge after that mag came out, fucking nutbar, I'm pretty sure there are a couple of steps out of the pic that he had to clear, maybe someone from SF can confirm.

  So rad you found that cover!

  EDIT- Check out the 38 mm wheels on what look to be 159's.

  It was his first pro model as well, the magazine add for it said something like "Mom says if theres a syringe in my board graphic I'll have to move out, guess it's time to move on."

   And what about "Santa Monica Airlines"? Does that ever bring back memories, shit was top shelf back in the day.
