I remember getting this at liberty board shop. Miss that shop.



I had that exact same board at one point,  wonder why flip stopped the "new wave" paint  on their boards


New Wave wasn't a paint job, it was board construction with ridges, like ripples potato chips. It was fucking rad. When you do board/lipslides, only half of the board was touching the surface, so you'd fucking fly through shit. It was like rails for your board in the early 00's, when rails weren't cool/accepted anymore.

Thomas Morgan's Alien Workshop pro board "whales". When I asked my parents for a skateboard for my birthday I received a Nash, I didn't want to hurt my mothers feelings so I acted stoked. I saved up my lunch money and purchased this Workshop from a kid at school. After I bought it or maybe before, he told me it was a 'slick'.  I played it cool and said something ridiculous in response, but I was secretly thinking "what is a slick?". That was in the fall of 96, the start of the of my 7th grade year.

I ruined that board when I got caught in the rain a few miles away from home. Sad

It was an Ali Boulala deck that with a tartan pattern and a zip up the middle, I guess inspired by the bondage pants that old crust punk bands used to (or still do) wear. It was about my third deck overall and I cracked it learning kickflip boardslides on a flat bar. Good times.

second hand, Powell-Peralta Steve Caballerro

first bought, H-street Tony Magnusson


edit : after seeing these pics, shapes were pretty similar...wish Real could make that shape again...no, just kidding
3rd board, Tommy Guerrero (always thought it was a Nicky Guerrero pro model haha, got vibes by the homies for skating a vert deck in the streets haha

that i exchanged for this one, Santa Cruz Rob Roskopp, double tail, my favorite

we exchanged trucks too in the deal, lost my indy 1?9mm and had gullwing street shadows instead...fuck


Snake, fuck yeah!!!! I too was slightly vibed by my mates for owning the exact same deck, the Tommy Guerrero one. It was too long for street skating and my mates would call this board "the ship" and when i later sold it over to a mate he got the nick "the captain". Also, I never got grip tape for this board so it went its full course ungripped!

First modern board was a shitty Acme X Image Comics slick that I really regret. Second was a green Alien Workshop believe slick, which I really wish was my first board. First pro board though was a Steve Berra Foundation slick:



Bought it because the first Transworld I bought (June 93 I think?) had a Berra Pro Spotlight and he became my favourite skater for a long time, which is super hilarious now. Also first vid I ever got was Foundation Rolling Thunder but I don't remember if that was before or after this board.

The graphic is still pretty tight.

ordered a blue dune from ccs behind a dune interview in slap [not even glossy then]. think i wanted a fork/spoon graphic but got this record cover everslick instead. didn't know the context or any of that but i liked that you could ride either end as the tail [nollie? switch? never heard of it].

Element Margera National Preserve

I was too young to know what the hell I was doing but it was sweet to show all my friends my Bam deck. I even put the Adio sticker upside down



Don't know why/how I still have this

Phil Shao Think with Spaceghost, Moltar and Zorak on it that I got for my thirteenth birthday. My mom bought it for me because it was half off (I shit you not, Thinks never sold here and were always on sale, I got a Wade Speyer deck later that year for Christmas, too). I had no idea what I had in my possession. I've looked on eBay periodically during adulthood, to no avail.

Eric Koston board from 2006/2007, I remember realizing it was kind of weird I'd already had a bunch of boards but that this was the first pro model one. I remember it being kind of tan colored with like red flowers on it, couldn't find a picture?

birdhouse willy santos. can't find the graphic online anywhere.  think it was called "ez willy"- iirc, was a cartoon dog wearing a baseball cap posted by a car, carrying a gun and some $$, maybe a few chicks around.  mom was not stoked.

Got my first pro board somewhere around 94/95. there were no shops whatsoever around my area (bavaria, germany)  let alone a skate scene. Somehow my brother and I got our hands on a mailorder catalogue from 'Gerich' and we ordered our first ' new school' decks from there via telephone. I wanted that Pepe Martinez Deck with the rolling dices but I got a different one with butterflies or fairies on it and it was a slick deck. Wasn't stoked at first but skated it down until the tail was gone. The started to skate the nose... great times haha. Writing it down made me nostalgic.  Awesome thread btw!

That's the one I wanted, the other one I couldn't find.

Definitely don't have either of them anymore but the only 2 I can really remember having were a Brian Wenning habitat board around the mosaic era, it was dark green or something, remember loving it and skating it in saviers and DCs in the back garden for months. Got it because I saw an ad of him nollieing a big 4 stair I think and was blown away.
A Colin Kennedy blueprint board, it was blue and white. Bought it because WFTW was the best and so was blueprint and also because he was scottish. A shame their wood was never very good from memory.
Tried to find photos of both but no dice.
In general never rode many pro boards, for some reason as kids we got the idea in our heads that pro boards were weaker because pros would skate their own models and wouldn't care if they broke because they were sponsored so just wanted thin, light boards that would skate well. Also boards didn't come cheap and realistically smaller company/shop boards were cheaper and just as good if not better at times.

G&S Bill Tocco: The first real skateboard I ever had. It was a turquoise stain, dope wheel wells with a dark middle ply, and some clear grip.

I went to the Alley (I didn't know about Windward) with my heart set on an Alva (everyone in Chicago skated Alva decks in the 80's). I had never heard of Bill Taco but once I stood on it I just knew it was for me.
Mellow tail, mid concave, and smaller compared to most of the other boards.

I also copped some Ventures, because I couldn't afford the G&S trucks, and some blue G&S wheels. Cheap risers, budget bearings, and quick to rust hardware and I was good to go.
