a random hodge podge if you will while on another chromeball kick. props to chromeball for being such an amazing resource for skateboarding all these years.











Itís skateboarding. To do it is to understand it. Nothing more. Tricks land themselves. You are the vessel of that trick entering our dimension.

This is THE photo.  My brother and i swore allegiance to the posse upon seeing this photo. We already was drooling over the product. We straight up worshiped the Danforth and Smith stuff especially. We cared little about tricks. When we was under like 10 was all about looking as mad max as possible and going fast and rock and roll. I was Doing 360s on banks and ride on grinds. 1987 i learned the Ollie. Natas became the focus. My brother stayed in transportation land.
We liked Alva and SC. Eventualy

Heres some really good Del mar  Ranch footage posted by Some Bald Dude. Pretty sure its 84-85? Stubbies' Showdown. I dont think ive seen this free style footage.

Not skating but it's just as sick.

This is my drummer Ian Clark. He's basically a little brother. My whole family feels the same.

Sometime in the 90s he was featured in Slap. This is the article. He was very young. Both is parents are incredible musical talents. So it makes sense. Audrey Clark and Eric Russell are two of the best. Check out their band if you like. They are called The 360s. It's similar to Pumpkins but Eric KILLS that guy who's name I forget rn. Eric is possibly the best guitarist west of NYC rn. I'd put money on it.
I used to skate with Eric. He's an OG ripper. Like late 70s right up until about 94 I think. One Phelps best childhood friends. They was into lie Boston hardcore and hung out. Same shit me and my friends did. These guys was there in the beginning tho.

I love my family and my friends. I love that my home town is so rich in punk and skatebloarding history.

 Ian's childhood band was called Heavy Friends. Blink (182) was also in this article.

Thanks for posting that Ellington one, always loved that shot. The timing - both time of day and the trick in motion- are perfect.
I think this was in a Thunder advert , was it also an editorial photo or am I totally wrong?

Also the Muska waterside 5-0 angle is great.
