chrome ball incident #224: in a silent way





the only dude on here that i know exactly how many things of his remain that i can scan for this site. the best.

had a shitty day so this one's as much for me as it is for you.

with this, this, and this, gino may be having the most-publicized week of his career. just sayin'.

I think Gino had a full interview with Big Brother way back. If you have that interview please post it, it'd be fun to read. I read somewhere he had a Gravediggaz graphic on 101, I wonder what that looked like.

This is a great website. Thanks.

OH SHIT!

...I know he had a Wu-Tang graphic. Maybe that article or whatever I read confused the two.
But enough of my jibber-jabber.

RESPECT!

Gino's Wu graphic. He did have a Gravediggaz graphic as well with a bunch of splattered blood. There were a whole bunch of Gino graphics that all seemed to come out b2b. Nautica, Gravediggaz, Wu, New York Islanders. 101 was the shit! Menace also had the Pu Tang graphic.

Thanks for the interview. I don't think I've read that before.

coming soon, anonymous #1 and 2.

thanks skeem.

yeah, that gravediggaz graphic was just the shovel, the pick-axe and whatever the other one was... black and white with blood splattered on it.

that gza board is bananas but my favorite is still that islanders joint. incredible. and that snake williams guy must have a lot of money.

i actually thought this interview was in a non-skate magazine for some reason and have been searching for this thing for like 3 months.

and anonymous #4, never saw that commercial either. thanks.

yeah... the NY Ianucci was so proper. One of the best boards I've ever ridden. I had the gravediggas as well but didn't last very long. Snapped it.

It's weird. I always seemed to get along with certain Rocco company riders' boards and not others.

Rode lots of Shiloh, Dill, Gino, Markovich, Sheffey and Gabe boards that were just amazing.

Never got along with Henry, Kareem or Daewon models. Guy and Carroll boards were generally kinda hit and miss for me.

I saw the Nike Ad, it was on TV. maybe 2001/2? I was in SD at ASR thinking I wish I saw more Gino, I went back to the hotel for a minute, flicked on the TV and the Ad just ran, I was WOAH, it was like a daydream - did that just happen? at the time he seemed ghost and then to think about wishing see more of him and then see him on TV??? He is THE BEST

Where can I see this Nike Gino commercial? I searched youtube but came up empty handed.

Had the Gravediggaz board...if you can find an old copy of the first Big Brother "Black Issue", theres a good photo of Lavar skating that board and you can see the graphic clearly.

That Islanders board was great and so was the Treelicker graphic!
