chrome ball incident #559: the skateboard blues








I orignally intended this one to be all 80's Lance but these bottom two are just too damn good to ignore.


Hope dude never quits.

Big up to Royce. 1up.

Thanks for all the support out there.

Lance is a true legend. To still be putting it down at 46 years old is something to envy and admire.
Got to skate his backyard ramp around '86. A friend knew where he lived so we went to the door and asked if we could skate. Lance said "sure, just pick up after yourself" and even came out back to watch us for a few. Such a cool/nice guy.

That's sick, Skately.
I was in a shop recently and his part in the Nike video came on and everyone just sort of forgot what they were doing for a second and became mesmerized by his part.
STILL KILLS IT.

Not sure who I like more between him and Cab, but it's crazy that we're all the same age--lol.

Both of them still shred it bigtime.

If anyone deserves some sort of skateboard pension plan, its Lance, or Gonz. I've always said that as long as I can do a decent kickflip, I'm fine, but if I could turn that in for five years of frontside inverts, which I'll never do, I do it in a heartbeat.

Gonz and Lance Mountain were, are, and will be two of the main reasons i skate and still love skating, even though it's dangerously leaning on the sport side lately. Lance & Gonz, Creativity, fun, allround absurdity and weirdness and each true originals. Rulers!!!
