chrome ball incident #743: strictly brute











"I like to see new things. I like smart and I like beautiful things."

From Santa Monica Airlines to 101 to Designarium and everything in-between, my all-time favorite skater.

Natas' rarely seen '88 Poweredge interview to close out the week.

Big up to Brink's Weekend Buzz. Good stuff.

Look in the dictionary under 'perfect no-comply' and BAM there's that photo. Also, a ten stair rail from god knows when, the public enemy tee... it never gets old, any of it.

Amazing interview. Natas is my all-time favorite skater. So chill, so into the fun aspect of skating.

bs powerslide looks amazing. Good interview too.

SMA finger paint model is amazing.

"ho hos down handrails" lol

That Natas On Video thing should be a prerequisite for all kids to watch before they're allowed to start skateboarding.

I was always more into Natas than Gonz. They were both killing it but it was the fire hydrant spin that just blew my little mind and put me in the Natas camp.
It's great to see what he's gone on to do in the design world. Dude has TONS of talent.

There's no such thing as too much Natas. Thanks Chops for ending the week on this note.

Would really like to see the old SMA ad of Natas wearing the SMA logo (on its side) shirt, kicking back. Chops please post that one - I definitely need a copy of that!

i hit you up over the summer asking about this...seems like someone posted...so classic, especially at 2:35 when The Smiths sounding song by this band The Human Race comes on. Guess there's no record anywhere of their existence except for in this video! Pretty special stuff and we even get a nice cameo from j Lee! Don't sleep on this one sk8 rats! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4A8m0f1DBHA&feature=related

Translation: Natas rides a bicycle.

That pissfuckcunt blog is as delightful as its name. You heard it here, folks! Riding a bicycle = you're a gay. Thank you for your wonderful contribution, friend.
