chrome ball incident #592: floating vibes










figured I couldn't do an Aaron Murray post without throwing in a little Scott Oster.

Ultra-stylish Dogtown ripper that never got caught rolling without his hi-beams on.

Dude's contest runs consisted of about two moves followed by 30 seconds of g-turn. So rad.

...somebody needs to bust one of those out at the next Street League soiree.

One for the older heads. Have a few more in the works from around this timeframe as well: Bod Boyle, Kevin Staab... and yes, even Tom Knox.

Just havin' some fun with this.

That melon grab is one of my favorite photos.

I will believe the Tom Knox post when I see it! :).. Speaking of G-Turns, I saw Chris Cook (at the Chicago Shootout which rookie Tom Knox won btw) end his run with an epically long g-turn that ruled.. 20 years later I still remember that... And what a nice guy TG was...

hi-beams and g-turns. perfect.

lol

g-turns are hard as fuck. I always sucked at them. Backside ones are pretty much impossible to me.

Nice, Chops. Oster ripped it up. Every pic of him oozed style.

I second a Tom Knox feature! Skated with him many times in the central valley and that dude killed it every session.
