chrome ball incident #420: a taste of honey








one of san jose's finest with a knack for switch frontside heels and slept-on video parts, ed devera.

and yeah, i had a set of those 40mm real rainbow joints... somehow they made perfect sense at the time.

...beats the shit out of me now.

big up to the TMA.

Totally forgot about this guy - he was on the circle. Reminds me of Mike Cao - what happened to that guy?

His part in the NC boardshop video in the mid 90's was so good.

I remember some weird situation where I ended up going to San Jose with his older brother to hang out and go skate. I ended up going to some weird party with him where everyone looked at me sideways cause I had on some skate shoes with holes in them.

Cheaps - I hung out with Mike not that long ago. He still lives here in SF and is just livin' life and chillin'. Not really skating, but he's got a dope BMW.

thanks fellas...

glad you noticed that George. It was gonna be either Ed or big brother's bong olympics but thought that might've been a little too corny.

jaycee, i actually saw cao skate in union square once back in like '96. i've never forget it... he missed 3 tre-flips in a row and went absolutely bezerk! Quim Cardona was doing these slick b/s 5-0s on the ledges there that day... there had to be like 30 pros there... i was buggin' out!
