wow... that check out is so old. Look at the width of those wheels! What year was that?

Tail grab sequence is so good. I had that one on my wall.

How much more good can it be? None. None more good.

The original ad reminds me of how much I bit his style in jr high and high school.

Guerrero, Gonz and Natas: my Street Heros. My favorite set up ever: Bonite Black Guerrero, Indy 169s and Powell freestyle wheels. Love the Jimmy'z ad!

Man that stalefish pic used to rev my engine. It prompted me to build one of those little kickers too. Super fun. (basically a standard launch ramp cut in half, no more vert...) Funny, I was talking about this photo a few weeks ago, haven't seen it since I was probably 14, used to just stare at it in awe. But my memory of it was on the other side of the street. Frontal-side brain flip.

Muy caliente! TG was such an innovator and had masta style. He pioneered ollie grabs off jump ramps and helped set the standard for street skating at that time. Much respect to TG.

That pic of that stale is timeless.
