I remember this photo of Kele Rosecrans shredding a pool. Pretty sure the photo is of a frontside slasher. He has this warface going, no shirt, looks real badass.
I think it was in a book about skateboarding I used to borrow from my school's library.
This photo had such an impact on me and my view of skateboarding.

Anyone here who knows of this photo? I'd love to see it again.

Small pic but I just saw this in an '02 Transworld in my closet minutes after seeing those other Drehobl photos on last page. Smoking really does make you look cool.

Just got out all my old magazines, scanning some photos/ads. I might post some more, what do you think?



I loved these Freshjive ads when I started skating. There's one of Gino from this series that I'm trying to track.



...



Atiba as Heath. I don't think this photo is on the Internet but I could be wrong.

Gino b/s 180 fakie 5-0. Not sure if he landed this one. Don't think this photo is on the Internet either.

I never noticed how similar these two covers were. So fitting.

Dylan Reider no-comply tailslide revert in Marseille from 2005. It doesn't surprise me that he was one of the first ones, if not the first, the first doing this trick on transition and made it popular to the point where many followed suit. RIP

Hey, I'm looking for a photo of someone doing an ollie of some bump in SF, shot from behind the skater with the city in the backdrop. I think it's early 90s, like 93-ish maybe. Any pointers?

might be a long shot but has anyone on here ever seen a legit version (original print or scan) of this real skateboards-era gonz photo ?

photo originally ran as the cover of a french mag back in 2001 but it was made all glossy and weird with a silver background. never got to see the proper original (this is a scan of the modified version with quick digital alterations). it was one of my first skate mags ever and both the shot and the trick confused me for years as a kid. i wasn't sure whether or not he might be grabbing the fence, little grom stuff like that. trick is still insane to this day.

i don't think the photographer was credited in the mag. mike o'meally ?...

and was it ever run anywhere else ? i'm surprised it never became a classic photo per se. i don't recall the trick being in any of real era gonz's video parts either.

i just started posting rare-ish photos of some classic skaters on insta again. most of them excerpted from euro mags. i already did that for a while ages ago but having gone through my collection (and refusing to post less impactful shots as filler just to keep it going) i had kind of stopped, but my friend recently hooked me up with a bunch of older issues i was missing and they're full of gems. kenny reed, puleo, pontus etc...

here are the two latest posts, slideshow format. also the insta account is my personal account so the photos are not all i post and thus you shouldn't necessarily 'follow', i guess i'll occasionally update this thread with the corresponding content as i put it up (until i run out of mags again)

- quim sw f/s flip, euros, reed, steve cab & salman playing chess...
- bunch of o'meally photos, reed again, tim o connor times 2, bobby p f/s ollie, more euros...

and a luy pa sequence i just animated for fun

This was on my bedroom wall when I was a kid. Would stare at that back foot for hours.
YES!!
Will we realize at any point, that we're just a bunch of loosers?
