taking a week break from the blog world...see you next week.
1993 old real ad. my old street legal kawasaki 90. straight gangster.
rip off of too shorts "born to mack" album. this is one of my favorite ads
i ever had. gold spokes.
i want to thank everyone that checks this thing.
hope you come back.
my mom's house 1993
this is me skating a long time ago. i was youngster.
my Mom is about the coolest person you could ever meet.
when she was broke in the in the mid 80's she was over renting in S.F.
she heard about an old iron works building in west oakland that was getting divided
up and rented out cheap. she was pretty punk at the time and the idea of having a huge raw space
to work with appealed to her. 3000-5000 square feet 60ft ceilings and an industrial bathroom was it.
the catch was....WEST OAKLAND..... it's still fairly rough there but at the time it was RUFF. the neighbors
threw bottles through my mom's door the first day we went there. i was scared. but she had big dreams
and my mom is tough. her boyfriend at the time skated an was my hero and my mom skated too so one of
the first things we did was build this vert ramp. all used or stolen wood. the ramp was big and gnarly but
kind of like a car with no third gear....once you got used to it you could tear it up. we loved it. it's where i
learned it all. my mom dropped in on it and her boyfriend terrorized it and everyone that came to skate it.
it was a one of the best times of my life. we made friends with the neighbors and got a lot of love out of
"lower bottom" oakland. thats my bedroom in the background and the kitchen above it. thanks MOM.

i was in japan a few years back and saw this crazy knuckle chopper half covered
by a tarp. i stared at it for a while and then this young japanese longhair dude comes out
and says "hey".
we got to talkin about his bike and how rad it is. he asked me if i wanted to hear it run.
of course i did. right then it started to rain. he skippery kicked it to life and made it roar.
crazy grin across his face. that was the firts time i met Yuta. totally random.
about a year later he was in paso with Mochi. we hung out a bit a had a good time.
then he past away in japan in an accident. he seemed to have an old soul and a good
vibe. i know he is very missed.

King of the road
Eat my dirt
King of the road lets go
Landshark will never let you go
When no ones left alive
Landshark will survive
Don't heed no rules or regulations
No fears or hesitations
Never goes by the book
That car knows how to cook
lyrics from Fang...landshark

jess the mess. 80's Hawaii demo. putting the balls in some serious danger.
jesse martinez had a mustache, could kick your ass, and could really boogie on a board.
his ramp part in "rubbish heap" was one of my favorites. look how obscure skating got in this
