chrome ball incident #506: yellow submarine














Super consistent and known to read books in between his contest runs, dude seemed to be everywhere in the early 90's...

Willy Monoloto Santos. I've always liked Willy. I love that picture of the kf over the rail, and there's like a couple of crumpled 1 dollars billz and sum change layin on the stairz. So good.

One of my early faves from when I first stated skating.

Tight post, Chops! I don't think Willy really got enough credit for how raw he actually was. If that makes sense. Having skated with him a few times back in the day, I always thought he was on some Koston type ish. Maybe it was his sponsors or something? I remember there was some talk about him possibly getting on World. I don't think that was his steez so much. It would've been crazy to see how much more shine he might have gotten though. I always thought that bs late bigspin was such a sick sequence. I'm glad he's still putting in work and hopefully he has it in him to put out one last banger part.

Straight up, dude probably banked that Birdhouse money and is livin' fat.

amazing. didnt want this post to end. such a ripper in the 90s. pretty much best street skater till koston came out.

He was still in Thrasher after that. I think they would have agreed with Tracker's own assessment. And that money on the ground was gas money owed to Willy by the photographer. True story.

Super consistent, high integrity skateboarder. Mira Mesa/San Diego legend!

Some serious longevity for this guy! G&S footage! So much good footage from Webb park. What ever happened to that place?

When Birdhouse first assembled their team, it made a lot of sense for him to go there and get some real coverage. G&S was fading out pretty rapidly.

He wore a knee brace way back in day... are they just totally f^cked now???
