is a bad ass.....








....if you disagree i hope you fall pantless into a mixing bowl filled with used needles, rusty nails, and broken glass with two gallons of lemon juice poured on top.  never mind how it got there.  maybe you were trying to make some sort of impossible cake mix or maybe you just wanted to have a comically large bowl of cereal and you thought these certain various items would hit the spot cause you're freak.  i know you're a freak because you can't appreciate g-mos.  go put on some pants asshole.

does anyone remember that a-team trick contest from a way back? a pro set a trick in a magazine ad and people sent in their entries doing the same trick. I remember seeing gershons ad and he was doing some weird grab, or wrap around or something at a park. does anyone have a scan of the ad or know what the trick was? as far as i remember i had never seen anything like it before

I had one of those 6hr vhs tapes with the reason and opinion back to back. Gershon and mumford guided me through my younger skate years
This though... Gershon Mosley -TITLE FICTION-

Is it true that the weekend of Tampa Pro 1999 when Gershon got first place, that he didn't bail a single trick all weekend? The world may never know. But I know what I choose to believe.

That's it for sure! GMos rips. I've watched/skated with him around Vans in Orange and he just kills it,trick selection on point

GMos is one of my all time favorites. At the same time, he had some of the ugliest shoes ever.

A lot of skate shoes from the late 90s and early 2000s look like the panels were just randomly generated by a computer program.

That could probably explains A-Teams graphics, too. Camouflage background, anarchy symbol, and a random animal.

Owner of my local back in the day (15 some odd years ago) once claimed GMos was the best skater he's seen in person, and that he witnessed him skate about  for hours without fucking up a single trick.
I wouldn't even try to aquire an elephant that would be mad selfish I don't have the means to give him a comfortable life

I saw him skating a demo in the A Team days and he was extremely consistent, Ronnie Creager would only be the other person I have seen more consistent/gifted on a skateboard. A friend of mine in the late 90's went to
California and Gershon hooked them up with lots of product, even brought me back a couple decks and according to him he was the perfect gentleman, very quiet. When you think of his sponsor ship history he would make from a nineties stand point a potentially very interesting interview subject. I think the only thing was his footage suffered was a lack of a dedicated professional filmer.

Probably because no one could stand to be around him for extended periods.
