This is in 1990—Tommy "Chicken" Guerrero styles for miles at the San Jose super mini fest. Powell was on the way out, Real was up soon after… Heavy atmosphere at the comp. Photo: Kevin Thatcher


The vertical plane gets destroyed frontside by Satan himself… Nope! Sorry— Natas Kaupas, 1985. Hands are cool when you make it up. Photo: Mofo


Buena Vista pool in the mountains near Santa Cruz was running for a very long time. I heard one night they dug it out with plastic spoons! Gnar! Finally tomb stoned for eternity, Hugh Boyle hurricanes as world champ in 1990. Photo: Kevin Thatcher


Smith grind? Fuck no, Losi grind. Big Al lays into some concrete cope at Del Mar. Right hand rollin' up the window, pushin' from the back into this grind—first hit. Fuckin' awesome; I can still hear it if I close my eyes and dream. "Allen Losi is gnarlitude." Photo: Mofo
