I believe this one is by Lance? Definitely matches the sarcasm and negativity prevalent at the time.. Damn! Just noticed dude is busting a front feeble!! This was like 92!!



Quick note: you might have noticed that there are ads now showing on here. Just wanted to put it out there that I went back and forth on that for some time then decided to try it. If it gets to be too spammy I'll take it down. However..if you see something you like, take a look. Any $$ made off of it is going to be put directly back into doing things for this site.

On another note; being asked for feedback on skatepark designs=priceless.

All Hail..

Repost from.. I don't know, few years ago I guess. Early Cardiel stuff really had an impact on me. Dude just went for it so hard.  Crazy that I live in the same town as him now and have come across him a few times.. My buddy that I go skate with all the time did physical therapy with him after being shot head in the head twice (yes, you read that correctly). Trip out on that..

Hometown Heroes, continued..

Even though I grew up in Southern California, having lived in the Sacramento area for more than a decade I also consider this my hometown. Sacramento has a rich history in skateboarding, and there are  tons of local skaters killing the skateparks and streets out here.

By the way, if you are ever in town go to the 28th and B skatepark and look at the pyramid he ollies  at 2:00. It's inconceivable that someone could make it when you are standing on it in person..
