chrome ball incident #286: the beard of zeus









h-street super am turned potential o.g. plan b am (at least in kelch's mind... any truth to that?) before landing on planet earth. gotta admit that I slept a little on carney later on in his career... a fact that resulted in some real dummy smacks while working on this post from maple's original baldhead. That transworld spotlight he did in late '94 was ridiculous...

special appearance by the king of carney background props: jason's 1more teammate and friend to chrome ball, mr june cate.

hey chops, do you know if you have any shots of the mission bart stations on here in the archives? Trying to get a little collection together for the blog. Got a few up already. Anyone else, same question...

chops said...

funny enough, i don't really recall any photos taken at the mission bart station being posted on here for some reason. that's terrible...

i know of a few right of the bat that i could send over. email me.

none of them compare to the one schaaf has posted here

I've always liked this video part. Just make sure to mute the sound.

Ternasky definitely wanted Carney for Plan B. Hopefully he'll post here and tell us the backstory behind it.

airwalk promo video, '95. first clip i believe...

Giles said...

that blender shot is bail i believe, which bums me out, because the truth is was an early street pioneer. he had a no comply in the street edition of thrasher from '84.

Jason Carney finally getting props!
F.Y.I. Feeble grind tranfer photo is Joe Mcclelland.

Yeah, that's funny. Don't know why but I always ended up in the background of his shots. I think might I've been trying to cash in on some photo incentive or something.

I don't recall the whole Plan B thing.I'm not quite sure if he was ever asked. I know that right when 1 MORE went under Chris Miller called him pretty much the same day asking him to ride for P.E. They had a spot for me also on the AM team but I decided I wanted to go pro for a "Dorfman backed company".
Probably the worst decision I made in my short lived skate career.

Thanks for showing the love. Carney and I actually still get out and shred.

Peace,
June

turns out i'm forgetting what's on my own damn site. that reyes joint is on here too. working on something right now sean.

never seen that airwalk promo before.

giles, i was kinda suspecting it was a bail but just didn't want to believe the harsh reality. still amazing though.

thanks june.

damn, can't believe how much mcclelland looks like carney.. shit was uncanny!

but yeah, i had to bring it up, i was working on this post and i noticed you in like 4 or 5 of his shots.

was trying to find your part in stun to link to, which i always liked, but that video is like a ghost these days. thinking about uploading it myself...

and thanks for the insight on this whole plan b thing. i never heard that before but its definitely not so far-fetched.

Carney took on more gnarly shit than you suckers will ever know..underrated is an understatement..first back lip and tailslide on legit rails...first ollie to monster handrail boardslides...late triple flip..flip tricks on rails before anyone else even thought about it..Dude made all street dogs step it up in the early 90's...
