Man, a lot of y'all were core as fuck when you started skating.


I was obsessed with Bam my first year or so of skating, then I got Round 3 and was a typical Mullen fanatic, as well as Daewon and Haslam. But then I saw Sorry and that sorta lead the trajectory to my more formative years of skating.

Jerry Hsu, and pretty much the whole enjoi team. But mostly Jerry Hsu because I'm Asian. I didn't even know Asians skated.

1991 = Bart Simpson

1997 = Tony Hawk (11 years old and first getting introduced to skating not performed by cartoon characters but still intuited he was way cooler than andy mac)

1999 = At my san diego middle school if you skated you either developed into a Muska/Shorty's kid, or a Jamie/Zero kid. Even though everyone conceded the skating was sick as fuck in both camps, you still chose a lane and bought boards and clothes accordingly. Since my thirteen year old self loved punk but didn't "get" hip-hop it's no surprise i drank the Jamie/Zero kool aid hard as fuck for years to come.

First full vid I saw was Really Sorry but that was when I just got my first board, I started downloading every video I could off Limewire and there were 3 skaters that really caught my eye and made want to skate more than anyone else.
I used to be really into jumping down shit when I had just started since thats a lot of was seen in videos.
These 3 parts definitely were my go to to watch before skating for the first 2 years of skating.
Chris Cole in New Blood

Diego Bucchieri in Good and Evil

and the last one and probably the one that me psyched the most was Ragdoll's part in BlackOut. Black Label used to fucking kill it back then!

The first two videos I ever saw was in the same night, they were sorry and round 3!

Ali and Geoff were my favourites for sure

Rodney and daewon blew my 13y/o mind but I really liked haslam too!

Then I watched tis and the spanly/Herman combo really got me hyped and my favourite has been spanly ever since!

Then seeing what if and seeing duncombe, this little ratty Australian kid ripping with a mullet was amazing!

Honourable mention goes to William Patrick because that shot confused the shit outta me

Jamie Thomas, fresh into Circa & still hot off Misled Youth.

A lot of THPS exposure at the time, so Muska, Reynolds & Rowley were up there too.

My friends and I used to watch the Black Label videos all the time because that's what was being passed around on CD-R's in my hometown for a while before everybody got access to the Internet. I was a fan of Pat Rakestraw's part for a little while because of the song, and Jub's part got me into low impact skating and SOD.

Started skating at the end of 1995. I saw a CCS with Heath’s kickflip back lip from Rolling Thunder and it blew my mind. My first video was Uno and my favorites were MJ, Heath, and Tom Penny.

All my friends were really into Baker and Shake Junt so when I first started my favorites were K-walks and Reynolds.

Saw a CCS with muska on it in like 98 or so. Got a muska complete along with fulfill the dream. Muska was my fav, but since Steve Olson had the first part, I saw him first, he quickly b came my new fav. 2md video was misled youth. Got it for Jamie Thomas, cuz he looked cool in a photo, but Same thing happened. Adrian Lopez had first part , and quickly became my fav on zero.
