chrome ball incident #376: soul miner










"I skate for fun because I like the way it feels."

dune and t.g. combine forces for a very worthwhile exchange.

...with snaps by tobin to boot.

and I'm still saying this has to be the most slept-on video of the 1990's.

Tincan Dune was all kinds of awesome. The Forties video is probably in my top 5. I have a vhs to dvd transfer of it that I can put in anytime and get stoked, relax, feel creative, feel Gnarly or whatever. Perfect length, great music, great city, best skaters.

Props on yet another awesome post on probably the most interesting part of the internet!

I hope you don't mind - I've linked to this post on the Rock Solid blog (Stereo's UK distro).

fantastic interview!
i was 15,16 when this was published.being from a city in the mediterranean,we managed to get some magazines and videos from america.i could barely understand english back then so,i wouldnt read the magazines but i'd look at the fotos and the ads for hours and watched the videos,of course.i remember i was totally atracted by stereo and real(girl too) more than any other teams or companies back then.but their message was purely aestethic to me.i could only relate myself to them by the image they had and their aproach they showed skating the streets.today,because of the chrome ball incident's amazing archivist work i can also enjoy the reading of this interview 20 years after and relate to them by their words that i can now understand.
congratulations and thank you very much.
my absolute favorite website on skateboarding.
all the best from Spain!
