  • I’ll have to watch to see if I’m in that video anywhere. I drove from seattle up to that thing with 5 people crammed into my dad’s car and slept in the car and in the bowl of the North Vancouver Snake run. It was a great time!

    My best memory of that weekend was watching Chris Miller destroy the snake run after the contest. Remember the bloody knee photo? I was behind the photographer for that one.

    First time I ever got to see pros skate right in front of me. Good Times!

  • Ya! Steadham’s backside foot plants, Hosoi’s indy airs,and Blender’s style. Good stuff! How about making skinny vert ramps again, so these vert guys today can’t spin 540’s ,720’s, and so on till they blow chunks from dizziness!
