-----i can't remember who i was talking too about wheels from the 90's. they didn't believe me when i told them how small they got. i am not gunna lie, i rocked many sets. it was all we had to choose from for a while. then 5 minutes after you threw em' on. they got flatspots. i guess it was bound to happen. skateboarding is always evolving. so at that time it went from giant wheels like the bullet 66's. then literally overnight they turned into bearing covers. so to those that picked up a skateboard after that be thank full. cuz the 90's skateboard look was just as bad..........but hey since companies are doin reissues. can i get some of them 40mm spit's for my garage. hint, hint deluxe.
*****click the pick above...and yes i know my scanner sucks. welcome to my world.
-----check out how small those wheels are. danny way still killing it.

------it looks like tone loc' has got bitten by the old school bug. i mean shit. i saw him do all his regular flipity shit on this thing. he told me that this board looked like way too much fun. so peep his little run. i think skateboarding is going to get a whole lot funner.
-----even young dogs can learn old tricks.

-----so last sunday a crew decided to go skate the ukiah park. so we all climbed in the van and headed out. lohne-star shot the pic above. pretty good times i must say. if you are someone you know has a van i suggest you fill it full of your buddies and hit the road. trust me, you will not regret it. oh yeah jakkerz shot some cool pics too. you can see them over at the oulk site.
-----heated discussion about which hemmoroid cream is the best.
-----zappy said he hadn't skated in months. i think he lied.
-----lohne star board slide to fakie into the bank. still shredding that ron allen h-street.
-----billy gabe on the jason jessee re issue
-----mexi matt, keep on truckin'
-----carli is cruxin'
-----came across this harsh bank.
-----austin funk, aka spunk slammed a crap load on this. his feet were always on the board. but the impact was way too much.
-----hendo shot this. stu boneless in the sandpaper.
-----told you that spot was rough
-----just a couple of clips. i was too busy skateboarding.
Friday, February 10, 2012
-----well it seems that i am back to working my behind off. all day i see these spots that need to get skated. mostly big red curbs. you know those ones that need a good slappy. as you can see my buddy forrest aka hector rolled thru witha 40 and a new slappy device. i suggest you go out and pick one up. sure you can still do flip tricks on them. but we all know nothing feels as good as the slappy. now go take it to whole new level.

-----john ponts. this dude is also known as pontsarelli or depontez around these parts. his last trick is fucking hairy. i still have seen no one step to this gap. after he bailed the rosa scene for sown south. he got hooked up by dogtown. then black label but got a better gig over at creature. prior to that, dude got the cover of thrasher. so if you are looking for him now, he is probably flying over alaska still being a scumbag. miss you buddy.
-----the credits. this shit is funny. just watch and see. also read what people put in there credits. you will get a chuckle outta that for sure.....lastly there was a bonus part to this. but the d.v. tape i have doesn't have it on it. when powner puts it up in the future, i will chuck it up. until then thanks for watching a piece of santa rosa skateboard history. i hope to chuck up some more for you guys. i think i gotta work late tomorrow. so i will see you on 40 oz fri........chalker.

-----amigos part two. we got some soon to be pro's, a skater of the year, sick filmers for video of the year, rad dads and rock stars in this next one. see if you can pick em' out. santa rosa was the place to be at this point in skateboarding.
-----danny ramirez. i have been skateboarding with this dude for a long time. dude is mega good at the flipity board thingy. his last trick is so fucking sick. watch it till the end! i havent seen this dude in a minute. danny if you read this, hit me up to shred with old guys!
-----jon lohne. aka lohne star. this dude is always on the chronnies too. what is truly crazy is jon went from riding for the shop to owning it. talk about full circle. coming all the way down here from the portland area. this dude has been killing it way back then and up until this day. dirty 30's trip. fool went bananas with a double set kickflip.

-----mike carli. i have had the pleasure of watching this dude go from little grom to full on ripper. not only does he shred on the board but on the drums as well. to many stories to tell......maybe one day.
-----brian henderson. this part is one of my favorites of all time. so tech. for some reason the line at 3rd and army will always be embedded in my brain. so proper. i think jeff filmed it. i just like watching the lines in the concrete go by. i am pretty sure i have lost every game of skate we have played together.
-----ryan fulton. this dude kills it. smooth style, good pop and all around chill dude. i get stoked when he pops up in the rosa town. skateboarding and beers are always the best with this guy.
