Old photos bring back many memories—some good, some sad. Here's some random shots to remember and never forget. Skating is like forever.

Frankie Fuckin' Hill goin' Rambo at Embarco while Big Dirt talks a little shit: "Niggas need beat, get beat." Photo: Mofo


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

The King of the Road issue never fails to serve up its own special recipe for brutality. This year, reigning champs Birdhouse went head to head with Element and Flip in an all-out no-holds-barred battle for the crown. Beers were butt-chugged, records were shattered (along with a leg) and insanity ensued with every page turn of the book. Included with this issue is the Hell of a Year DVD which contains the heaviest hits from thrashermagazine.com in 2014.
