I've always liked that that Thunder ad--and everything else DLX put out at the time. And Ethan's skating is timeless. I only wish his comment about style being attainable were true.

What is the b/s lip from? It's awesome all around, even though I thought it was Brian Sumner at first.

Andrew said...

portland skate nerd night was so fun ! do you still want report??

chops said...

Thanks guys.

Very true, Lucas.

Rif (Bif?) Yeah, there's definitely something going on with that board he's riding. No way that's a mid-90's Stereo board.

SMorales, its from a Tum Yeto tour article in Slap. 99 or so.

Of course, Andrew! And don't spare any details, man. How was it? Did you go to all 3 days? Did Julien and Andy make it up there? The Mrs. and I went to the New York one of these and really had a great time. Glad you did, too. Let's hear it.

I have a later-in-life appreciation for Ethan. I never liked him when I was younger, but over the last few years I've grown to appreciate his style and trick selection much, much more.

Keith said...

fs rock shot is nice.

What happened to that shoe company he was leading... Beloe or something like that?

Really stoked on his Stereo days. Kinda missed his whole Foundation phase.

It's always a surprise to see new (old) stuff from your favorites. 4th frame on the 360 flip at burnside is great!

That high ollie in the Marseille bowl must be after the Münster contest. I was in Münster and remember Ethan riding a wide old school board with short nose and square tale and a Spitfire sticker on it. Almost as a quiet protest against the competition. But he rode with self confidence and style (not in a ironic/dandy way as Olson sometimes does) and did more flowy ticks. I can still remeber the lofty 360 flips he did over the hips with that big board.

He rode an old school board at a contest in Vancouver, too.

I never trust a person who doesn't like Ethans style.

Ethan's always been the shit, but I breathed a sigh of relief when Beloe went under.
