chrome ball incident #652: the giving tree

honestly felt my first post featuring this kid was actually kind of a dud so I'm glad I could finally go back and try to do him some justice.

one of the most underrated skaters of all-time, karma.

legendary status.

So cool. That part is awesome. Every good part should have a few good slams in it, funny clips, lines, street and transition. Or at least that's one tried and true formula.

I liked that thrasher included his army street ollie in their latest classic covers section. I always loved that shot. These are all great too. He must have some hippie ass parents, that's quite a name!

We never saw too much of Karma over here in the UK... but what little we did see was impressive.

I was blown away by the stuff Jake Rosenberg posted on YouTube from the Dogtown video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMVW-o85YK4

Switch front-foot impossibles?

Some great photos in this one. I remember that emb sequence. He was definitely keeping up with the World kids back then with the tech shit.

Karma's rad!
I remember an early
thrasher vid had a section
with him being interviewed by
or with Jason Jessee! so funnnnny.
I need to get me one of those usb VCRs. I remember looking at that Thrasher cover a lot.
