chrome ball incident #208: sharp dressed man









90's ripper that never really got his proper due. clean style, solid trick selection and ridiculous color coordination... too bad he just couldn't have got hooked up on the era's fresher teams.

"I told you, Jimmy. That was for you!"

I was thinking pretty much the same thing you wrote about this guy.

love how the betty is sweating him in the grind down the jib.

some early 90's slang seemed appropriate

could never work out the backlip photo, did he bump off the wall or what?

There's a photo on tumyeto.com of Austin Stephens backside 50-50ing the 180 nosegrind ledge. Funny coincidence that an old spot would show up twice on the same day.

Those little wheels are killing me.

It reminded me of when I thought it would be fun to skate a 'bigger' wheel so I got some 50mm wheels and they seemed so big.

I preferred watching the older footage. Probably wouldn't have said that back then though.

haha.... "betty". nice, TP.

there's a photo of mandoli skating that same rail and the wall looks much further away, sam. but yeah, i thought the same thing when i first saw that photo.

weird, hans. haven't seen that ledge in ages.

yeah, tyson. almost posted that part up but my overall hatred of that video prevented me from doing it. still better than "chaos" was though.

figured this one might bring you back out of your hole, keith. welcome back, homie.
