We used to skate with our neck tweaked to imitate Cab. Dude was such a style monster in the 80s days. Effortless, flowing, technical, powerful, insanely consistent. He actually had some of the best street tricks in both Future Primitive and Animal Chin when Tommy was supposed to be the "street guy" and he also had the highest air record during the height of Hosoi's reign. And he was the only one of the Bones Brigade to continue pushing himself on street well into the 2000s, jumping on handrails, doing proper flip tricks and ledge stuff. He's been killing it for 4 fucking decades. RESPECT.
