I think it's hilarious this is a thread. Definitely never would have thought Watson would fuck with the Natty Konch.  ;D

Dude I love me some raw ass weirdo shit. Natty Kon fits right in there. It's like Gummo or Memory Screen but from the other side of the lens.

Also funny you should bring this all up. Craig Williams is my homie through working with Ultimate, and Aaron Shear has two tricks in Illegitimate Bastard Child from my home town Saskatoon. Kickflip frontside noselide at a demo at a hockey rink park I worked at, and back tail on a long out ledge off a five stair. That's a legendary trick to go down on that thing and I'm so hyped it's in that video.

You're at Ninetimes, right? I worked at Ultimate for years so I've packed many an order for you guys. Jason Gordon was a loc at Plaza when it was new and he was always super friendly - those boxes were packed with love.  ;)

Bob Gnarly is my Avitar.

I had no idea Bob Gnarly was a skater. Wasn't this a name of a famous YouTube channel that posted skate videos?

Natural Koncept has always been very fascinating to me. Especially Choppy Omega. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JprWhlK3Qu0 This part is so insane.

It is true that the company was used to white wash drug money from Hawaii and that is the reason that even though they had an add in every TWS mag and a massive team since the mid nineties you hardly ever saw their products any where.

To me Natural Koncept was fascinating from a distance.

97 me would call and heckle Katch every night, all night. Over and over. Calling him out for biting styles and early photoshop over 80s trains pics. He would completely lose his sht and scream into the phone forever. Maybe that was over Shaolin, not Natty Koncepts though.
Got a couple flow boxes in 98-99 when i first moved to Colder Ballerado.  Rented a room from a filmer who worked with NK, and started receiving boxes out of nowhere.   Never sent footage or anything. Easiest boxs ever secured.

choppy omega was the first person to ollie love, not whoever ollied it first (for some reason i think it was vinnie ponte but thats gotta be wrong) with all those people around. choppy did it the night before with nobody filming, and in the dark. and then again before they started filming the next day. didnt want to film it, legend.

Let's just say that NK sales are not what paid for that 20 person Ruth's Chris dinner.  ;)

This part is awesome. I miss these kinds of people/parts in skating: moderate talent, whole lot of go for broke/crazy.

Why did Phelps hate Choppy? This is the real shit Thrasher pretty much just pretends at these days.

I lived in Boulder at that time.  We've probably skated blue park together.

Met a filmer who filmed for NK at that park. That's how I got a few boxes at that time. Can't remember his name, but he worked at Brothers by the park too. He subletted me his apartment above the sub shop on the Hill beside circle K. Boulder was so much fun at that time.  Everytime I see the sig of dude slaloming through the library parking lot on here I get nostalgic.
