chrome ball incident #753: who's in there?












"If Henry Rollins reads this, I want to fight you because I think you're a dork."

The notorious Flaco Poweredge Interview, 1991.

We've been getting tight with the honeys.

Special thanks to Vans.

This guy always had style and originality. That's the reason I still dig him. He may have been acting or not but he always seemed to hit the mark with me. Smooth for a big guy.

knee gaskets! And hosoi rockets in that first pic. I wanted a set of rockets so bad when I first started skating. Ended up with Bullet 60mm 95a instead cus that is all the local shop had.

That trick he's doing in the jjpe3 scan... with the two wheels balancing on the coping... there's a trick name for that right? What's it called? Super gnarly.

Amazing. Best frontside ollies ever.

My favorite o.g. wheels were A1 Ollies, which (supposedly) could magically improve your ollies. There was an ad with Hensley doing a melon grab over a trash can (off a bank), along with a dubious testimonial letter- "Before I could only ollie two inches. Now I can jump over shopping carts. Thanks, A1 Ollie wheels!" There was a serious debate among my friends over whether it was true- "No! They work, man!"

Carving with two wheels on two wheels out is called an edger.
