Sort of like a reverse Haslam?

I was reading the new Village Psychic article and started wondering.

His "ultra gangsta" outfits in some videos were really out there, but looking back at a lot of people at different times is a bit funny.

This is him a few years back, about as tight a fit as anyone ever needs to get.

Plain, simple, comfortable.

I still find it funny when people don't believe me that he skates vert, and I mean vert ramps, not just mini ramps the kids call vert cause they don't understand much about transition skating.

He used to come over to NS from Maine in the early 90's because his family was friends with one of my friend's family. Rode for Entity. Baggy then. Was also very good at mini ramp.

Haslam changed because a certain person in the industry who was scouting him told him he needed an image. I'll never forget the outfit he was wearing when he came back up after that first stint in California.

In an interview he said nowadays he finds skating transition more interesting than skating street. What a disappointment.

Also the whole playing in a band and switching from baggy to country. Just sad.

I can't say for sure about ska but I do know that Wu Welsh surfs in a standard tight wetsuit not a baggy wetsuit. Hope that helps. Seeing those vert clips made my heart skip a beat. He's awesome.
