Sure others explored the realm of switchstance before him (Gonz, Mullen, Andy Howell, etc.) but it was Salman that really commandeered that shit and took it to another level.
1. Classic portrait of Agah. Correct me if I'm wrong but I dont think Salman intended for this photo to be published (it was supposed to be for his mother) and promptly left Indy for Thunder as a direct result of this ad.
2. While I was never a big fan of his shoe, I did like those rugby shirts Real hooked up for him with the little embroidered camel joint on there. This switch ollie (circa '93) was bad news.
3. Now this is what I'm talking about. Sure these tricks seem commonplace now, but in '91!?! Shit... my man was breaking atoms on this one. Revolutionary.
4. This was originally going to be a Ed Templeton post but it got switched up, so this one-foot goes out to Ed. A pre-cast Salman officially breaks the chrome ball one-foot ban.*
And if you haven't gotten a hold of the new Skatebook yet, I strongly suggest you doing so. I got mine today and that joint is packed with some real jawdroppers. Recommended.
*the no one-foot law was the last standing rule of the initial three bans I pledged when first starting this blog: no late shoves (#32), no pressure flips (#78), and no one-foots (#81)...
what can i say, its total anarchy in here. (yawns)
