chrome ball incident #471: the new breed










"You should live your own life."

One of the few early 90's vert pros that street skaters really dug,

Todd cut his career (too) short after only a few years to focus on his punk band.

Super good style, innovative trick selection...

(though his street skating was always pretty amazingly lousy.)

Always gotta wonder what could've been with this one.

Special thanks to my man Keith. Those chrome baller shirts look sick.

thats what im talking about, skateboarding dude. his part in that OG union wheels videos with klein. so good

Keith said...

Dude has some sick lip tricks for sure. The ones that always stood out to me are the big spin variations he has in Questionable. Sick.

SERIOUS correction on that pic of him on the mini-ramp holding the guitar. The caption reads "Strat hoisting" but he's actually holding a Fender Mustang. You can tell by a)the bridge and b)the control plate.

WHAT THE HELL THRASHER

One of my favorite people to street skate with to...lol..Nobody knows how to have as much fun as Cubby street skating...Check his part in the Liberty Horror video if you can find it...
Good post Chops, well deserved...

This post was already killing it, and then I read that sidenote and it made this one of my favorite posts on the site.

lip trick monster. btw, i think he's actually holding a "jagstang" in that "something else" pic. it was that cheesy kurt cobain model fender made for a short time.

I think if Jeremy Klein had died after Rubbish Heap, he would be a legend now.

Todd sold me some some stickers via ebay a few years back. I was stoked as fuck to find out that it was him. I gave him positive feedback.
