this one's for all the older heads out there... cause this joint's gonna go over like straight kryptonite for those that weren't around during ron knigge's brief rise to fame. its all here, fellas: little ass wheels, little ass curbs, big ass clothes, bridge bolts, video captures, indecipherable tricks, bouncing boards and "land-it-at-any-cost" style. this is about as early-90's as it gets... and anybody under the age of 25 is straight heading to the exit, never to return to this site ever again.
i gotta admit that i was happy to have so many people request knigge for the 100th post. people tend to frown on this era.... and it can be a little rough to look back on some of this shit... but fuck it, man. it was a fun, albeit awkward, time. it was street skating, still in its infancy, trying to define itself while exploring the possibilites of what one could do on a skateboard outside the confines of some kid's backyard vert ramp. people were doing shit on the daily that had never been done before (for good or bad).
just look how much street skating changed from Public Domain ('88) to Questionable ('92)... immeasurable. and that's only 4 years! once people caught up to the framework that had just been laid down by gonz and natas earlier (with the nod to mullen), shit just exploded. and knigge had a hand in that progression... Odd Numbers soundtrack and the whole nine. Dude wasn't around that long... '90 to late '93/early '94, but he was most definitely doing his thing for the time. Holmes was like a flatground wizard, for sure.
Maybe some of the jersey heads will know of his whereabouts these days... last i heard he was a pool cleaner or something.
