holy crap. You're killing it this week. That bs 180 at that Houston contest... so crazy. I can remember watching that footage in that early 411. Koston switch treflip the pyramid. Those kck's are so clean. someone's gotta re-release that shit! My town got the black/gum colorway. Never got those all blacks.

Love that carroll and rudy are on the platform on the backside 180 pic.

literally said "fuck off!" out loud when i saw that second pic. wow!

Royce59 said...

Shit, Guy is back there as well.

that whole houston contest section in 411 was ridiculous. it was perfect. kind of a simple rickety set up with a few ramps and a slider bar if i remember correctly...


not trying to hate on him but what would sheckler do if the dew tour brought back a set up like that? that mega park thing that he skates would be obsolete...

Royce59 said...

I have actually seen footage of Ryan and the Plan B team skating demos with far simpler/worse course setups than the Houston. He wasn't being a bitch, he was shredding.

Oh that was 411 #3. The ramps looked green on tape. Some song that had the lyrics "Push me right over the edge" that I could never figure out who sang that or what song it was. They didn't display song titles in this episode they just showed a bunch of cd jackets at the end. I still google the lyrics every now and then but no luck.

This was the same issue that had Raised by Seuss songs on it.

royce,

i'm sure sheckler can rip anything. my comment was meant to be mostly sarcastic and more of a comment on the dew park contest set ups than on sheckler himself.

AAh, the video that made us discover actual-sized white t-shirts and the grace of a simple, non-doubled, un-pressured fakie flip (when done by Scott J). And a pre-Ras Mathhew matt pailes, too...
Here's what can be heard on it : High Havoc, Mother Earth, Corduroy, Whooliganz, Teddybears STHLM, Jacob's Mouse, Galliano, Raised By Suess. Exact tunes and titles to come, maybe.

Here's what I got on the tracks from the ones I could figure out:

Corduroy - High Havoc
Mother Earth - Knowledge [Rap]
Raised by Suess - One Week Till Supper
Another Raised by Suess song
Whooliganz - Put ya hands up
Jacob's Mouse - Dusty
Teddybears STHLM - Powertrip
NOFX - Together on the sand

None of these have the contest music though.

yeah I´ve been wanting to know what song and who sang it too for years.

If someone can remember more of the words, maybe we have a better chance of finding out

It's the best how Kareem's wearing the Stereo sweatshirt in the 'Kareem's World' Ad. Couldn't pull that off these days. Like Lavar wearing the Girl shirt in Trylogy.
