chrome ball incident #850: hammerhead












"Skateboarding keeps kids out of trouble, keeps their minds off bad things."

Paper airplane enthusiast and all-around style oozer, Christian Hosoi.

Quick little heads up: The next week or two is gonna be a little hectic so bear with me. The plan for now is posting an interview tomorrow before heading down to Tampa Am for a few. Posts will more than likely resume next Thursday after I get back.

Thanks for always supporting me and this site, guys.

really like the last shot. Judo air also look amazing. Lay back beam! lol The full pipe transfer looks like a mid 90's pre incarceration shot. Focus or Milk era?

Hey guys, that b/s pipe transfer was late '91... which I think was end of Tuff/beginning of Milk.

Keith said...

Thanks guys. It trips me out seeing him ride a board that's not a hammerhead and also with a big nose.

Oh yeah! Have a great time in Tampa. Hope to see Suciu win!

Picture 4...is there even kick to the tail?
Ahh the 80's. Horrible yet great all at the same
time. Only Christian was always rad. Always rad.
I used to just marvel at how high he would fly.
Those contests when it was him vs. Tony I was always
cheering for him. And Danforth. In 62nd place.

the rockets rock 'n' roll ad changed my life. it made me run out and get a hammerhead, mimic the griptape job, and start jump ramping over cars with a shirt tucked in for no reason, it ruled.
