i didnt have a favorite sponsored skater when i was new to skating. the only skater i looked up to at the time were my cousins in medellin, and some skateboarding program on nickelodeon. mouse, trilogy, & welcome to hell were released and everything changed. 1996 was a good year to be skating.

First vid i bought was 411 #28. That 'es euro road trip got me so into Koston. I remember just loving  his style (this was way before i even considered style). I still get stoked on that footage. He does some super long kicky nose manual nollie flip which pretty much blew me away at the time.

Considering the time (and my age) i also of course got into the Shorty's shit. Yes, i liked Chet, but i was like 11, so eat me.  I was really into Daweon and Rodney around the time of the Round 2 vid. I was super into Reynolds when I saw the end. And thats all i can be bothered remembering.


28 was aiight, Gideo Choi part and Jayme Fortunes nollie backside flip over that rail were sick too. I dunno what happened to Tabias, but he was steezy.

Actually I confused myself, it was actually issue 29 that i had. My cousin had 28 though, i remember. Didnt it have some scott bourne profile or some shit where he falls through to canopy of some trees when he's lookin for his board? Funny shit.

damn, is 1998 considered back in the day already??
That was nearly 10 years ago now

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
Yeah that's true, i wasn't being a dick i just thought it was funny how 10 years doesnt seem that long ago.
And yeah i've only been skating since like 99.

tony cerventes, lizard king..

hahaha... wait, you ARE kidding right?

I like Lizard King.  I just thought that everybody on this board has been skating longer than me.

I think, when I started at Thanksgiving of '97, I liked... Arto Saari, Rick McCrank, Rodney Mullen. Feedback just came out.  Dill & AVE! Reynolds.  Damn, that's a good video.

I was 11.  20 now.  I'm going to get a decade-commemorating tattoo next year.
p.s. i do that in the bath sometimes. its fun to do it when you have a woody allen. when you open your legs up, your stick goes straight up, as if it wants to go to heaven.  - quote from guess who.

When I started skating in 96 a dude I met out skating gave me my first video, Thrasher: The Truth Hurts. It came out in 93 but when I watched it for the first time, I was blown away. I'd never seen such good skating before. After that I choose Willy Santos as my favorite skater, but I also enjoyed Carroll, Karl Watson and whoever else was in the video ( I haven't seen it in years). My friend's fav after the video was Simon Woodstock because he loved the weird shit he did (anyone remember the vans ad where he had the penny suit and the board covered in pennies)?

Doesn't Louie Barletta use that penny board in the Enjoi video?

Stereolab and the Promise Ring are both so rad! (And so is MJ)
It's a shame that The Promise Ring broke up, thier last album 'Wood/Water" was SO good. You have good taste in music and skaters man.
