Limpies #1.



Limpies was Chip Morton's clothing company with the slightly inappropriate logo. A company like this could really only have happened right at that turnover from the 1980s to the 1990s. You kids don't know what you missed. There was no internet, there were only three skateboard videos a year, cameras used film, people made 'zines and you could buy music on cassette. It was totally awesome. Anyway, that's why guys like Michael Burnett and Michael Sieben advise the young folks to run away when old people start talking. We tend to ramble on.

Now back to Limpies. According to their ads, Limpies didn't sponsor anybody, except for Mike Youssefpour's girlfriend. Several pros who wore the clothes included Ron Allen, Jim Thiebaud and Sean Sheffey.
