chrome ball incident #556 plays it cool













my main man from the infamous menace crew... dude was so sick.

easy to forget that holmes kickflipped the gonz during his gnarlier fun days before donning his trademark hat and heading to lockwood to up his tech steez.

this segment is timeless.

stoked on that noseblunt slide flick.

big up to rob brink, stereo and the 'snack.

next post will be thursday.

always loved Pupecki, sick as.

I always thought the b/s 180 ollie to fakie 5-0 on the venice ledges was an awsome photo. Does anyone know what trick he is doing over the picnic table? Hardflip maybee ??

I think the Menace dudes have had a lot of footage that makes LA look way more fun to skate than it usually does. Like that gap to tailslide sequence, or even the front blunt still. These aren't the kinds of spots that some dude can poop out a hammer at for the most part, but they look fun as shit and it's sick that these dudes skated normal shit in the street like that. It ages really well I think because it's just real skating.

That first bs tail pic looks like it was cropped. I like to see the take off and the landing in a photo. Of course Pupecki's style comes through regardless. Dude looks sick in lot of those pics.

Element ad bs 180 fakie 5-0 looks super. I like it better than the Menace tech one. The right arm and the angle makes it look more proper.

Fs blunt has always been one of my favourite shots.

its a front shuv over the picnic table.

always loved that front tail sequence, along with the lavar fs noseslide on the opposite page where he's skating in the white/blue axions. there were some other good flicks in that photo issue too.

Steez like Gino and Keenan. That's a funny ass joke. Dude was also an asshole back east before he bounced out there.
