people wore windbreaker pants.
we'd get drunk and drive all night to philly to skate LOVE PARK.
not a ton of skate stoppers everywhere. skating was still vilified but there was interspersed 'do a 900' b/w 'skate or die dude' and 'skater fags'.
our pants weren't as big as they used to be but hadn't gotten dick tight yet [except ed templetits].
pj was percolating w/ ryan gallant but not out in the world's eye yet.
marc johnson no longer wore white shirts and dickey's, he'd become a billboard [for the A team].
gershon continued to sweat through pants, regs and switch.

Fulfill The Dream by Shorty's heavily influenced baggy blue jeans with tight black shirts and fitted hats.

Public skateparks were full of booze and weed, not heroin and meth

CKY was kind of cool

My friend Andy thought dressing like Jim Greco would make him better at skating but it was a dirty lie.

The kid from you local park who ripped at skating also ripped at biking, scootering and soccer but was publicly shamed for riding anything with two wheels.

Most importantly.... Skate Street in Ventura was still alive. Can't remember if it was the revamp or the original.

I was 12 so that's my recollection.

My memory is fucked so entirely possible my timeline is off but Iím getting visions of

Axions or Circas with weed pockets, Shortys and Muska, using deodorant to wax picnic tables, flameboy and wet willy, Tony Hawk with a bull-fighting cape on, Reynolds drinking with orangutans, classic Transworld videos, ordering from CCS magazine, mailing dollars in envelopes for stickers, CKY Baker and Piss Drunx corrupting my young mind, getting 411VM VHS in the mail

A big difference between then and now is that we werenít all so connected, so what we my and my lil homies were watching, how we were dressing and what pros we were obsessed with may be totally different than what was going on with other skaters. The internet didnít matter nearly as much to skating. We read transworld and bought videos from the skate shop but other than that we were our own little bubble.

Shitty prefab concrete skateparks began popping up all over New England. Some have been improved by fundraisers, others bondo'd yearly by the locals, while the rest have gone to complete shit  from neglect or bad tracts of asphalt that doomed them from the start.

World industry was still hip in the twelve and under crowd.

Element was pre-Bam and had yet to blow up.

CCS still sent out these little fifty page brochures for free, was hella rad.

Blank decks and shop boards had not begun to eat away at the industry's profits.

Kerry getz was getting PAID.

You couldn't swing your dick without hitting a Tony hawk ad for this or that.

8.5 boards were as rare as 7.5's are today.

Mike Carroll was in his prime. Koston could do no wrong. Biebel was about to explode.

I had a pair of the muskas with the tongue weed pocket but I was so innocent that I thought they were just where you could put your house key so you wouldnít land and bruise your hip if they were in your pocket.

Alien Workshop - Photosynthesis came out and if you were a teenager on the east coast you were in utter awe of Brain Wenning and Anthony Pappalardo.

Athletic footwear was not a part of skateboard culture.

Skateboarding was (still is to an extent) heavily regionalized. Like a poster above said, the internet was in relative infancy and average skaters were not really connected with one another like they are now.

Rail chomping was in its prime. Most of the biggest pros were doing some gnarly shit down some huge stairs.

Tom Penny started to poke his head around after a hiatus.

Print magazines were extremely important and one of the only ways one could know what was going on in the industry.

Edit: John Cardiel was still able to skate at peak ability. This is genuinely important, he is a once in a generation type skater.

you could tape over your trick if you rewinded.
you could degrade the footage by taping over bails.
you could watch the trick on a little window of the camera but otherwise, wait til the video comes out.

word of mouth. spots had colloquial names like 'gagne ledge' and apocraphyl tales of gnar gone down. 'jay's gap' in olympia washington, according to folklore had been nollie bigspin flipped by 'jay'.
steve olson had 360 flipped of the maze gap at the capitol and so on.
no video library to confirm or deny.
elissa steamer and jaime reyes were the only girl street rippers.

lots of groundbreaking videos came out those days, some of which i only got around watching years later after shit went youtube and stuff.

like misled youth released 99 and was pretty big in 2000 still, because there wasn't so many videos. workshops photosynthesis, tws modus operandi and i.e., baker2g come to mind. also the first static came out in 2000, but i didn't watch that until late 00s i think.

everyone was sad tim brauch passed the year before.

Awful backpack rap in Skate videos.

Aesthetics was coming up.

Alphanumeric gear was all the rage.

Big puffy DCís and running from under covers and bike cops at Love.

Axion released Guyís second shoe the Aries.

A-Team was cool for some reason.

World officially fell off.

Deca took Worldís place.

No one wore Vans.

Osiris was cool for some reason.

I graduated high school and the jocks always asked me why I skated.

No one wore Thrasher shirts (not even skaters).

Strength Magazine

7.4 Alien Workshop decks.

Deluxe was in an awkward phase.

Skaters were upset about DCís being sold in PAC Sun and Fred Durst wearing them.

Modus Operandi came out.

Lakai was coming up.

Adidas had Gonz, Jahmal, Paulo, Matt Beach, and Quim.

Nike stopped making those hideous Skate shoes that they sold in Eastbay.

Tony hawk ushered skateboarding into the mainstream by landing the 900 on national tv and then appearing on the cover of THPS video also doing the 900. in every suburb in America skaters had "do a 900" shouted at them by jocks hanging out the window of their dads muscle car.

The Geoff Rowley Vans shoe came out and sparked the vulcanized shoe craze, and the throw back shoe craze which ultimately showed Vans the way to recover from bad shoe obscurity. The "Off The Wall" tag reappeared on the back of their shoes. In an attempt to be old school everybody, mostly non skaters, wanted the shoe with the wavy stripe ironically called "old skool"

The Tilt Mode Army made skateboarding fun again, which at the same time revealed how not fun the A-Team was. Enjoi Skateboards came a few years later as a dwindle brand and sold red jeans with a panda head embroidered on the back pocket.

There was no public skate parks so Vans installed skateparks at Malls and charged $14 to skate for 2 hours.

Eric Koston was a god and frequently changing what we thought was possible on ledges, rails, and gaps.

Everyone wanted to be on one of Alien, Girl/Chocolate, Flip or Zero.

-Mumford was killing the rail game, Ryan Johnson too.
-They had skatepark lists in magazines, that was how much there were in the US where it took a couple pages to list em.
-Everything was extreme.
-Noticed more than just skaters were wearing skate shoes, girls an jocks would rock em too.
-Hubbas weren't put on the endangered list yet.
-Unless your name was Ray Barbee or that man am Mike R(not gonna attempt to spell his name) guy who was sponsored by Foundation nobody filmed a no comply.
-Can't remember any slappy'n of the curb tricks in videos.
-Ellington was the only person taking the back big spin to new levels... Templeton and Rowley were the only people I can remember doing impossibles at the time too.
-Hot ams were Colt Cannon, Machnau, Janoski, Rob Mckinnley, TX, Trainwreck, TimTim, Biebel, Joel Meinholz, Shimizu, Baptista, Wenning, D Gar, Apples, Daxter Lussier, Eric Bork, and Jake Nunn according to TWS at the time.
-Only tricks done down Hollywood 16 stairs were Ollies, a frontside, and a kickflip.
-A-Team was around but by the end of the year it kinda morphed into Enjoi.
-Skateboard sites were in their infancy.
This was also around the time I started to notice more people skating in my area(probably due to THPS). It would just be me and 5 guys for a few years but that last year of high school was when there was an influx of younger skaters all of a sudden... That's all I got now.

In the year 2000, Circa and DC were killing it.

Gino, Tom Penny, and Guy were seldom seen. Jason Lee was gone, Hosoi was in jail. They were touted as style gods and their elusiveness only contributed more to their legend and appeal.

Thrasher wasn't that polished layout-wise, and there were ridiculously bad ads being run in the back pages. Bad ads in every mag really. The army ads that Kolostrum mentioned were brutal.

Either Muska or Jamie Thomas was your favourite skater. And Shorty's was pretty much the top-selling brand.

Pros and ams who ripped but didn't have a shoe sponsor basically wore Koston 1's all the time.

The only skatepark near me was like 10% skateboarders, 10% rollerbladers, and 80% stoner kids.

Scooters were essentially non-existent.

Gravity Games.

Thrasher Comix was my favorite section of the mag.

Over the pond here in Europe, Cliche was quite fresh to the game and had just released their first video "Europa"

Blueprint also just released their amazing video "Waiting for the World" which really put them on the map as a team.

I think Don Nguyen ollied El Toro for the first time, although that could have been 2001?

The Blind Reaper was everywhere in skate shops as was Flame Boy and Wet Willy (RIP World Industries message boards)

Skate backpacks were actually amazing, especially the Clive ones as mentioned above. Wish they were still around.

Clothes were definitely still baggy over here and everyone had those belts that are now coming back in to rotation.

Pretty sure Savier started up in 2000 as well!
