chrome ball incident #865: keep it rollin'


















"We are street urchins inhabiting parking lots and city streets, mingling with other street creatures and skating until never."

Figured some Cards would be perfect for a Monday morning. This is the 13th post featuring John on CBI which gives him the most by a pretty wide margin. Dude is inspiring on so many levels.

And that last K on the fence is aces.

In other news, Static 4's got me hyped! By the time it comes out in 2018, shit's gonna be bananas!

And while I've been riding silver trucks since 1991, Ishod's Tribe-centric Thunders are too sick not to mention.

Five-O Threads is at it again. Killing it with these new GZA Gino joints. Incredible. 

Finally, I was hoping you could help me out. I keep finding these pics posted online of old Gonz graphics but with a cat seemingly named Orange in them... what's the story there? Anybody know?

Orange the cat? Is it the cat from the comic strip Bloom County?

The orange cat pictures are paintings from Tim Olson = Tim Olson (of roger/beez fame)

Dude's still left the largest global shred footprint out of anybody to date. all of the best tranny parks have felt his wrath. Shit he's done at spots worldwide will be talked about for decades and more.

back when i was a little skate rat, im talking like 10-11 years old, I didnt know shit about who was who or what a "Pro" even was, but I had this pic on my wall of Cardiel doing an ollie over a hip cuz It was just the gnarliest, most tweaked out thing i'd ever seen. Then when I had an art project for school I went through all my mags and picked the best looking photo i could find to draw: Cardiel doing a back tail. I didnt even know who the fuck he was, but to this day he looks better on a skateboard than literally ANYONE

I've never seen that interview. Thanks!

Really like that fakie melon over the hip.

When I saw "I've been riding silver trucks since 1991", first thing that popped in my mind was "Eric's ridden Silver Trucks since 91???? How weird" lol

Anyone got that old Spitfire ad from a Thrasher in 92? Cardiel doing a wallride up a glass panel of an office building? May have been Wade Speyer... Pretty sure it was Cards. Tell-tale arm tweak.

THanks Dtj16

And Bansai, that ad is on a previous Cardiel post here. Hit the "Cardiel" tag and go back through the posts. It's there, I assure you.
