Session at the chicken coops. We had a bunch of ramps on concrete slabs from leveled coops. Are those tracker trucks with the plastic baseplates?

Deck : Circle-A Bob Schmelzer
Trucks : Gullwing (Pro 3?) with plastic baseplate
Wheels : G&S Plaid (58mm?)
Bearings : Bones Swiss, back when they had metal shields on both sides

This ramp was in my backyard, but we did have a partially burned down barn in the neighborhood that had been half rebuilt - leaving a concrete area to skate in.   We never saw people at the house, so we snuck over a few times to skate it - heart racing.   After a few sessions we brought some jump ramps - packed in and out.  But after a month or so we just started leaving things there. It was our own DIY with wood ramps.  We never got kicked out.

I found this photo from like 2002-2003??

Sold my car. Flew all the way from Australia to LA (death trip) Then to SF. Went straight to FTC and bought a complete (the girl board was definitely 7 something ) skated straight (with about 2 hours sleep) to the spot I had dreamed about for YEARS. Only to find it was shut down. Devastating. Pier 7 was dunzo



Drinking at Milk bar and meeting my favourite proís. Frank was so nice. And Marcus McBride had the freshest fits on EVER. Flawless.

fs 180 one foot? never seen anyone do that trick, pretty cool.
anyways, I had a picture of Chris Miller wearing those Jordans on my wall when I was a kid. and I really want to buy some now, buuuuut the second hand prices are stupid.....I'm not paying 400 euros for sneakers. BUT there will be a reissue in january or february 2022!

Still looking for my photo album, but happened upon this one photo of me and my second deck ever.

I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.

i shared this in that spot thread in Useless Banter, but this seems like a better home for it



i'm not sure what year--i was probably about 17 or 18, so 1988 or 1989...that's over a hip incidentally. i had been skating for about 5 or 6 years at that point, but that's the earliest photo i have, i think. as i said in that other thread, over the decades there were a lot of fleeting DIY spots in the parking lots of closed-down businesses, in and around Detroit, and this one was in the parking lot of a closed-down Little Caesars. picture was taken by a priceless and long-time friend who owns one of the most enduring skate-shops in the Detroit area...

My real name???  If so, thanks very much. I was hoping it would be too small to see here. I always hated my first name.

Fs 180 one foots were fun. Youíd just have to kick it once you started turning.

Dude, good luck getting a pair of Royal Hiís if you wanna pay retail. Youíll have to pay big for them cause they get bought out by all the bots. You need to find a pair of Royal Midís. Much cheaper and almost the same thing.

yeah it's just that everybody did bs 180 one foot, not fs! at least where I'm from. Totally lost the one foots btw. That's a trick I really want to relearn.

About the Jordans, I thought they introduced those raffle systems to keep the bots from buying everything, like you said? anyways, mid or hi, yeah I don't care. I guess I'll have to be on point the day the reissue is released.... I fear I'm slowly turning into a sneakerhead!

->lazieyez: awesome Gonz deck man. Loved those graphics and they look great in white. Much better than my first real board! (Vision Jinx)
