chrome ball incident #802: nowhere man














found this online the other day and got real hyped. always dug this dude's style.

a member of that NY/Huf crop that took Deluxe by storm in the mid-90's... now he remains one of that decade's greatest vanishing acts, Ben Liversedge.

I think he's another one of those that just seemed to came up at the wrong time.

thanks to the 'tap!

Ben is the baddest!
This dude was sick. Another Real rider that just faded away. Coffin down Lumbard? Get the fuck out of here!

What a mean frontside noseslide! I could drool over that all the day long.

I did a triple take when you posted him in that ATM ad at Fort Miley; totally forgot that he took that route post-Deluxe. Glad you unearthed some more gems; loved this dude.

Didn't dude get dropped from some Stereo over some BS? OR was that Bobby Puleo?

The front board on the bench is the best! This guy was always so sick. I hope life after skateboarding is treating him well.

He had and interview post ATM talking shit about their Mexican made boards. Can't remember which mag though.

That ucla brick gap kickflip looks amazing.

And the diner ad. Classic. JimT looks hilarious in the wig.

I've never even heard of Blue Light wheels lol

That kick flip at UCLA, was it shot by Brian Lotti?

This dude always killed it back in the day, was always hyped on east coast skaters killing SF when i was younger. He lived in Burlington VT back when i lived there years ago now. He used to work at this skateshop/park before i worked there. He was kinda a dick to everyone and got fired. He was skating then though this was like 2004ish. But last i heard he wasn't skating and working some late nite job. Not sure though havent lived back east in awhile. Anyway every though he was a dick, still gotta respect his skating
