Pete Eldridge's dad randomly came down to our skatepark one Saturday last year and told us who he was. It was almost 2nd hand celeb shock...if only Pete had been there!

Also I met Gonz' girlfriend in 2005, hot Russian model, but he was with her so that doesn't really count

didn't believe him at first, but he had on him an OG Girl backpack from when the company first started. And for an 8 year old, he seemed to know a lot of stuff.

Referred to all the Chocolate OG's as his uncles (i.e. Uncle Keenan, Uncle Chico, etc.)

This is not the same thing, but my older cousin supposedly grew up skating with Koston. I am not really sure if I believe it but it was kind of backed by my uncle, who said one time a bunch of famous skaters came over.
My cousin used to live with Anthony Mosley

I saw Antonio durao after gino gave him a high five when he switched heelflipped some double, I had to lick his.hand clean.

Brian Clarke was my waiter at this pretty nice restaurant on long island that I took my gf to, he serves up a mean filet mignon.

My friend that I skate with from time to time grew up skating with pops, he refers to him as simply 'anthony' whenever he tells stories about him.

Between yeah right and hot choco, you could run into gino almost anywhere on long island. I saw him everywhere from flushing to riverhead.

Pat rumney used to skate inline one skate park, he's actually my best friend and not todd yuricks.






I've only fabricated one of these stories.

I was skating a Bowl in Colorado and Mr. Tony Alva was there. My wife was sitting down on the bleachers, and in the middle of the session I looked over and Alva was macking my wife. Hahahahha. I didn't trip out cause he was so damn old it didn't matter. Later, I was talking to my wife, making fun of the entire situation, and she was like, "who was that random old guy trynna talk to me"?

this girl i rode the bus with in middle school was kevin thatcher's (ex-Thrasher editor) niece.  She gave me a huge stack of stickers.

One day I was skating through an Albertson's parking lot when the bagger boy collecting carts gave me some Jeremy Klein stickers.  He said he was his cousin.  Years later I got the sticker tattooed on my back, then a couple years after that I ran into Mark McKee on Decatur street at Mardi Gras and showed it to him.  I dont' think he was impressed.

In Canada every cracked out dude, muscle bound chongo, fat old dad seems to have a story about how they used to skate with Colin McKay. Usually then their tone gets more serious when they talk about Casey or something. I work in a shop and have heard this story 3 times, I've almost laughed at the guys face one time, but he was huge.

Gnar'd. I love that this is your first post here. I don't have any good ones, but ran into Rhino's (staff Thrasher photographer) girlfriend walking her dog and saw us skating and told us who he was. It was kind of cool because I've been out filming a few times when he was shooting so she was stoked we knew him. My good bud works with Jamie Palmore's mom on an ambulance.

Growing up in the SFV (North LA) area there are too many but one of the cooler dudes is Torey Pudwill's dad (Mark if I recall correctly). When Tory was about 7 or 8 for a short time I put him on flow for a little company I was TM for called ShtAss. Always liked chatting it up with Mark at SkateLab and recall saying initially that "he (Torey) will go far, like 'Tony Hawk successful' (something non-skaters can understand) if he sticks with skating." He was just a super cool and mellow dude, not a Nyjah or Sheckler'esque 'skate-dad.'

Went to junior high with Jeron Wilson. One of the nicest kids ever. Borrowed his NES Double Dragon cartridge one time and the school year ended so I kept it all summer.

Used to run into Weston Correa a lot, we both did solo night sessions around Reseda all the time when we were like 15. Also a really nice kid.

There was the little Mexican kid named Paul with a pony-tail down to his ass who was on the grom squad for the shop I rode for. I remember watching his skate a flat at outside the shop and it made me feel like I sucked and realized I had no future in skating. Now he's in Mountain Dew commercials, has a pro shoe for Nike SB, and I think he skates for some little company called Plan B or something. Unfortunately never got to meet his dad, which would've been sick being he starred in classic films like A Million to Juan and Born in East LA.

In rehab I met this guy who thought he was really cool because he claimed his cousin was Tony Tave...

This reminded me. 'That kid Paul' was a camper at the skate camp I worked at. He was a really nice kid, though I've heard conflicting stories from people who were campers with him. His dad dropped Paul off one year and was browbeating Paul's little brother for puking (car sickness) all over the inside of his Escalade.
