first video i ever saw was mouse but that was well after i had started skating and all i could think is that it was wierd how koston and mariano kept switching thier feet, it didnt make sense at first. i used to watch that every day and go outside and try to roll switch down the road. i loved those 2 and anyone in powell "Scenic Drive"

Barbee, Natas, Frankie Hill, Danny Sargent, Guy Mariano, Rudy Johnson, Gabriel Rodriguez, Paulo Diaz, Tommy Guerrero, Vallely, etc. 

Ban This and Public Domain were probably the first videos I 'owned'.  Disappointing  when guys like Vallely used to be so awesome end up being such kooks today.  But then again that was like 15+ years ago.

alright, but how much has really changed in these past 8 years in skateboarding? same skateboards, same shoes, same tricks (just bigger and longer)... now if you compare 1990 with 1998 things have changed...

but if you're just referring to time, it's all realative to ones age, for me 8 years ago is a little less than a 1/3 of my life, if 8 years ago you were 16 then i could understand

but you threw out colt cannon as you're fav from back in the day...he's been heavily in the scene since what, 2000, maybe '99...that's pretty recent to be throwing out back in the day status

Tabias Walker was actually my idol for the first few months I skated. Invisible "Days Of Plunder" was the first video I ever saw and dude just looked ill on a skateboard.

Eric Dressen, Natas Kaupas (from Reason For Living), Frankie Hill, Ray Barbee, Lance Conklin (Propaganda), and everybody, and I mean everybody from H-Streets Hokus-Pokus.
These three videos are first skate videos that I saw in my life (all three dubbed on one tape) and Hokus-Pokus is still one of favourite skate videos after all this time.  For years this was all I known about skateboarding : ).

Whatever happened to that guy? He ripped and had a good style.

Damn man I hate to admit this now but... Mike V.... Ban this and Propaganda... My friends where all Natas fiends.

Yeah dude, the really old Mike V. stuff was always sick to watch. I loved the endless boneless possiblities. Also, Mullen without a doubt was my all time favorite for a while.

Hosoi and Cab. I think I started skating around the same time.
