ricky o is def the most influential skater to me. i can never find it but there's a vid i think watson posted where a car tells him get outta the road and he goes 'get outta the road? you get outta the road'. shit's awesome, he is doing a flatground line over and over w/ i believe a fs flip [outta his normal canon, i know].

One of my all time favorites.  Watching him always makes me wanna just grab my board, run out the door and just go.

I'm a huge Ricky O fan. I bought Via the day my local shop (Threads and Sleds in Haddonfield, NJ RIP) got their copies. The guy behind the counter could see I was pretty stoked and gave me this poster. It's some ninja bearings ad Ricky dropped off at the shop and they gave it to me. The quality of this picture is pretty bad because I took it off an old phone, this poster is still at my parents house. It miraculously survived the great purge of when my parents threw my skate stuff all away and turned my bed room into a guest room as soon as I left for college.

The first time I had an encounter with Ricky was in 1994 when he kicked a group of us out of Love Park yelling, something to the effect of, “I’ve been skating here 13 fucking years and there are too many people hear so get out of here now”. I don’t even think I knew it was Ricky at the time but who else could it have been looking back. It was my first time at Love and I just assumed locals shut the place down if they wanted to. Never had a problem with him after that and as he began to recognize my crew he was always friendly. He skating with us at our local spot in NJ and was super consistent. Nothing too fancy just like what you see in the videos but everything was clean and done with style. Traffic boards are good wood also—riding one right now...

Awesome. I lost a good chunk of Thrashers (89-90) during a parent raid. As punishment for getting caught "toking on some reefer" at 14, my dad tossed a bunch of my Thrashers in the trash in front of me. Stole his cigs next day.

Oyola is easily one of my favourite dudes to ever step on a board.  Even off the board, the stuff he's done has always been impressive. Silverstar and Illuminati were fucking sick. Traffic still kills it.

what width boards were they riding east in the mid 90s? Always noticed the bigger wheels but kinda hard to tell on the decks

8 inches was wide back then. 8.25 was a beast and you had to work for your flip tricks but you got used to it. somehow the industry caught up.
