Sorry if any of these have already been posted, a bunch of the images throughout this thread wouldn't show up for me for some reason.
Anyways, two pictures each from two of my favorite skaters, Cancer Dan and Lennie Kirk, one of each at Hubba.
All of these photos are from chromeball.

Not much to say about either that hasn't been said already--plus the pictures speak for themselves--but I'll ramble a bit anyways.

I just love that Dan is smoking in both, as is his nature, and how effortless each trick looks. That nosegrind is too ill; so loose and flowing, and I kind of like how bare and clean hubba looks. The kickflip just has beautiful colors, the lurkers in the back, and the board lines up perfectly with that circle of wire on the telephone pole, a nice little coincidence.

I saw that someone else posted Lennie's switch back 5-0, but just the raw photo--I honestly think it looks best in the context of the ad. Just classic Alien graphics: clean, simplistic, and well done. By far one of my favorite ads ever. Not to mention Lennie's hands and pursed lips--dude is just going full throttle on a super gnarly trick at a super gnarly spot. The back 5050 photo is just out of control. Dude is grinding like his life depends on it and/or punching through the space-time continuum. I wish he didn't fall off like he did, but so it goes.

Leo Fitzpatrick hurricane, first saw this on Police Informer. I like the way the Half-Cabs look and how his truck is dug right into the ledge. If only he had a Supreme shirt on, haha.

Is there footage of this?�  I always wanted to see it.

There was footage of the attempts in some tour video. I don't think he landed it. Craziest thing is that the bus was moving.

He landed it, I was there and saw it with my own eyes.

does anyone have that famous photo of gonz doing a lipslide on a rail with these colorful flowers in the foreground?

Can't seem to find it, would be stoked if someone on here had a link! i'm pretty sure Spike Jonze shot it

Don't really know much about him: Dan Tag 1987 New Jersey, Winter , photo by ben cornish. "sporting the chuck taylors and the salvation army sheik look. Dead of Winter at Corns ramp. Riding for Alva at the time look closely for the �STEAM� written on the board�NICE!!�and Texas pads were all the rage they said." -From thehouseofsteam.wordpress



this picture is amazing
if I wasn't told the year I totally could have mistaken this for a present day photo

I saw your mom do a ollie to cooch drop straight down the big black pole, it was gnarly. she defiantly shut that shit down.

^^^ Jason Adams is so amazing in my book, I was stoked on him the moment I saw the blackout vid. Definitely in my top 5 skaters of all time

recently came across this cover of Alphonzo Rawls. dig it

Does posting chromeball stuff count? anywho... Bill Danforth


Love this photo. Its just seems so gnarly (i'm assuming the everyday skater didn't do big drops at the time). Simple roll-offs down curbs and stuff are the best feeling sometimes. But while everyone was carving it, this dude goes and rolls off the thing that's the size of 1 and a half shaquile oneils, in front of a bunch of people. There's footage of this somewhere in the 1988 ohio skateout competition i'm pretty sure.


this one... I dont know what the frick i'm talking about, but its straight poetry.
