"Eager night crawler John Cardiel jumps onto the hook. He can't wait to be inside a fish"
Tobin Yelland's photo of Cardiel was used in an article by GSD on the advantages of skateboarding at night. It is one hell of a cheesy caption, but a neat photo. Cardiel would have been on Dogtown. By the shape of the board and the time required to prepare magazines back then, I'm guessing the picture was taken in late 1991. He might even be riding a slick bottom board. This would have been when Cardiel was starting to blow up. It seemed a little surprising when Thrasher named him SOTY for 1992, but they knew what they were doing and getting us ready for the future.
