surprised no one has brought up Adam Alfaro yet. For some reason I was really fucking with this dude, maybe cause it was 2006-2007 skating with all the tie dye and pysh rock, but i remember being hyped on this dude and then he kinda just went away

he also had a clip in Time To Shine(which imo is the best Transworld video)

If someone can find the sequence of him dropping in on the huge paver quarterpipe In Barcelona and immediately going into an Ollie down a set of stairs that would be cool. I will try to find again. I think he was wearing Vans slip ons and a memberís only thrift store come up. Shit was tight.

Anybody know a good shop to get some Black Label boards from? None of the shops round me carry em anymore and I canít find any on Parade, rather support a brick & mortar shop if I can.

The Jub thread made me think of this video 'cause it's the first one I saw him in

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4vkESPJMdo

Had this on heavy rotation in the early 2000's. It was a hype video that I could relate to more than the tech and gnarr stuff that was going on back then

Holy shit, did not know that. If that's legit, wow. I was wondering what happened to him, I used to skate the same park with him all the time in 2001-2003ish. He was a nice dude at the time and absolutely destroyed everything.

They are on BBS wood now, so you could say they are still the best decks in 2021 as well.

The most BL boards I have seen on OCD for a long time...

It does seem like there are not many Black Label drops in Australia over the last few years (currently through Chapter 2 Dist, which is part of / under 4128 Dist based in Brisbane), but it does also seem like John Lucero has been busy of late and there are a lot of Black Label boards around right now again.

Gotta laugh at the guy who said "no mention of alfaro yet?" dude hes discussed in multiple posts on multiple pages.

I used to skate with Adam a lot. Or rather, we would be at the same park together a lot. He was always a pretty nice dude. I worked in the industry at the time (this is like 2002-ish) and he was one of the few kids that actually destroyed the whole park, all the time. This is when even at a skatepark, kids weren't really going buckwild on transition yet. (Sadly I didnt either and now I am paying the price for my transgressions)

Anyway, being an Orange County native and a huge fan of Lucero, I have always had a lot of love for the Label. Jason Adams is a hell of a dude and his LK part is incredible. I have always been a big Pat Smith fan (and ride CODA boards now) and I mean, Grosso finally getting his 540 in LK is so so so so sick. I've always liked John, the company, everything about it. Just awesome.

The halcyon days of being distro'd by Giant and shit were awesome. I would ride that curb vulture if it were a 9, and that egg Reuter keeps calling out to me. That kid is sick. Long live the label.

Always thought this part was underrated
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3xLCDmRUWdk

That Pat Smith part randomly popped into my head a few months ago and I rewatched it.   Great combination of skating and music.  I remember it stood out seeing east coast skating in a label video.

Svitakís part from Label Kills was another one of my favorites from back in the day.  At a time when a lot of skaters were dressing fresh trying to be cool he was flying around with neon griptape and black flag shirts. 

Making me want to support the label by going out and buying a deck.  Those two videos (Label Kills and Blackout) were a big influence growing up skating but I think I only had two label decks back in the day.

Patrick Nagy, editor/filmer for black label, has a good interview on the FL podcast talking about the making of label kills, definitely worth the listen
