I was also pretty stoked on Markovich. He skated fast and went big when no one else really was.

Hosoi was the first person I saw that made me want to skate.  After watching my first videos a month later, Natas, Cab, Jeff Kendall, and Gonz.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot about Dressen and his wallrides.

Gonz and Natas, I started skating around 85-86.
Hosoi and Cab. I think I started skating around the same time.

I did and it was all about Hosoi. I think it started out just because I thought the Hammerhead boards were cool. My first three real boards were all Hosois
You have me mistaken with someone that is important.

First three boards were:
Hosoi Hammerhead Street Mini
Jeff Grosso Demon Board (hand me down)
Gonz Color My Friends

Do you remember skating the same board for 5-7 months?

Hell, yes. boards back then were tanks. Skated the same board until the tail was about half the size it started at. Then I got a paper route and bought new boards every couple months.

I think I had Tracker Ultra Lights on all those  boards too. What the hell was I thinking?

That is exactly what I did, worked a paper route just to buy boards. My first three decks were a Powell Steve Caballero with the Dragon graphic, a Vision Gonz with the face graphic, and the Powell Tommy Guerrero with the flaming dagger graphic. Yeah, boards used to last forever then, and everyone used rails on thier board. My first pair of trucks were G&S trucks that had hollow hangers, anyone remember those? They were made of titanium or something. I had a set of Tracker Ultra Lights that someone gave me once, and I remember the plastic baseplates broke. After that I always skated Indys for a long time, until the 90s and the Venture craze hit.

I had 2 paper routes (my block consisted of a whole lot of apartment buildings).  Sundays were the worst.  Try delivering them heavy shits on a skateboard and no elevator.  I thought those G&S trucks were chromolly steel.  I had them, too.  Then I skated Gullwing and Deadbolt trucks.

on my first board, i was supposed to get gullwings, but they had run out, so instead they gave me ventures.

Luckily my route was in a suburban neighborhood. Was in the morning on weekends and the afternoon during the week and my buddy's house was halfway through my route. So I would do half my route and skate our launch, quarter pipe, and slider box for a couple hours. Then I'd fiinish up the route, then go home. Memories....

Cardiels "One try, do or die" Spitfire ad in Thrasher - I think this was during the first few years of my skating, but it always stuck to my mind the most.
Another one was a sequence of his noseslide on a tall, long ledge down stairs with caption along the lines of "Its beatiful to watch someone so in control and out of control at the same time...". His facial expression in the pic/seq tells the whole story.

Cardiel was, is and forever will be the king in my mind.

Rowley, Koston and Glifberg (first it was mainly because he was a dane... later on, I learned to appreciate skating, and he's one of my favorites because he is amazing!)

EDIT: Woah this is an old topic!

When I started skating I thought anyone older than me that skated was the coolest person on the planet. Today, I'm not so sure that any of them were all that cool.

As far as pros/ams go, I thought Justin Roy was super cool. I met him (fanned out on him) at ASR when he was still on Foundation and he was super friendly.
