chrome ball incident #832: sparkles















"Back in '92 there were numerous tricks that I lucked-out in. Back then, I just kicked my board around like a fish of water until I saw griptape and jumped on it."

Nice little mish-mash of early 00's Koston including Skateboarder's Chomp-era interview by Aaron Meza. Super good.

Pretty Sweet is less than a month away.

And in other news, longtime Chrome Baller Dan Moynihan is selling some excellent prints of his artwork that you geezers will definitely identify with. Good job, Dan.

Nice post chops. I'm curious about the Mckay interview in the Skateboarder Mag - any chance of posting that up?

Wow. That Oakley ad ranks up there with some of the horrible Uncle Wiggley and Woodstock ads.

It's amazing how much coverage he's gotten over the years. Probably more than anybody else in the decade from 95-05.

It always surprised me that he was still doing big gaps and rails when I thought he was due to go on cruise control in his career.

Please do not hate on Woodstock

Anybody else ever go down that city hall rail? (R.I.P.)

Random Matt said...

According to Quartersnacks, James Frankhouse noseslid the curved City Hall rail before Koston. I don't think anything else went down on it.

I think it's that he's so consistent, Keith. He's never seemed the personality to rest on his laurels. He seems to always try to outdo himself. It's nice to see when you see so many pros just cruise.

And when did the chink chink change to a nollie 5-0?

when was a chink chink ever considered a nollie 5-0? chink chink is a tranny trick where you roll up fakie bop the coping with your rear wheels to get a little air, turn either way and stall on your front truck for a sec before coming in fakie.

The Chez said...

You are correct Anon but I have also seen it used as a nollie-5-0. Maybe the Euro mags think that's what it was called. But that's what I've seen it called on the street. Either way, I miss trick names. SSBSKFTS270 kinda tricks just need names!

A Daniel Castillo post,pretty please!!!
An interview would be even better,he's been around a long time and must have plenty of stories to tell,especially about World Industries and being on Chocolate.

On a related note,always been a fan of Froston,consistency defined.
A trick machine...Apart from Hardflips,that is.
Damn,even my broken ass 36 year old body with it's two trashed knees can do 'em.

Ahhhh. Euro names explains it. I remember the first time I went to France in the early 90's they were calling a melon grab an 'Ollie sad' or some BS. Hahaha. Flip front, instead of frontside flip, etc. too
