chrome ball incident #398: wolf hands










for the older heads out there.

i'll be honest with you... besides knowing that the term "frontside indy" could maybe get you punched in the face, I really don't know shit about vert skating.

but seeing photos of chris miller taking out whole sides of tiny 80's halfpipes with those huge airs of his will always get me stoked. throw in some upland pipeline flicks along with some choice miller artwork... forget about it. timeless.

and he still kills it.

regardless, i highly doubt chris remembers the exact moment when this happened... but we do and i don't think we'll ever let him forget about it. poor guy.

man... that Combi Bowl footage is crazy. Picking up so much speed from the corners. He's well into his 40's right?

I remember seeing some footage recently on youtube... can't remember what clip. Blunt slides on vert popping in forward. Pretty nuts.

chris also had one of the first serious spoon nose boards out there. it was a little more pointed than most nose shapes, but it was one of the first boards that hinted at the modern design. awesome board.
