Tommy Guerrero

Searched and nothing came up. My bad if this already exists.



Future Primitive came out a year before I was born, and it's cool to see some of skateboarding go back to this kind of style of street skating in recent years. That video had an apt title in that sense, too. TG seems like an archetype to some of the skating we see now.

Great style for the time. Loved how he skated street like a pool with him hand dragging and slashing everything.

^ "Junk collector. I collect junk." Best quote.


Had to search for this Forties industry section starting at 21:42.  I think Tommy's music is excellent and I always loved the song he used in this.  I e-mailed him asking where I could find it and he responded, I was psyched. His Bones Brigade pioneering was before my time but I still appreciate it, I'm proud to skate with him as a founding father.

Anyone got a video with a crooked cop grab? I can clearly picture it being in one of those late 80's street contests off a kicker.

 You and the D00D have turned this thread into a horrible head-on-collision between a short bus full of retarded kids and a van full of paraplegics.

Nah thas the Gonz. Lance Mountain did a Rodney Mullen graphic or two for Almost recently tho. I'd like both of those boards if anyone wants to give them to me, figure it's a nice way to start my collection. That and I think like some of these up and coming dudes' pro wheels with the cool shapes and stuff. #Collector

BTW that tailblock 360 in the first video got me pumped. I've been doing some nose block transfer stuff lately in the streets that's got me geekin

Gonz sends in drawings to DLX and Tommy takes this artwork and "edits" them into Krooked graphics.
