God Damn...

I first saw this dude when nick games & sports would air reruns of sk8tv. This was like 2003, and he had already moved behind the scenes so I couldn't find out much about him at the time. I remember those fakie 540s over the spine, WTF!

And now he been on instagram just killing it, so effortlessly. Dude is just great, but i never heard him get much mention when I was I was coming up, which sucks.
FUCKING ALFSOME

He did some gnarly stuff toward the end of his career.

But personally, I always loved his transition skating the most.

Alphonzo Rawls - H-Street Next Generation

Such a rad style and always doing some unique tricks.

I couldn't find the Hokus Pokus part.  If my memory serves me right, I met him at the Pink Cadillac in Waikiki at the Honolulu premier for that H-Street video.

I love this thread because I haven't seen that Stars and Bars part since probably 1997.
