Spitfire #5.

John Schultes was another Dogtown pro. His gear is so 1980s that it borders on being painful to look at. Sorry, dude. Schultes had the distinction of being in the first full page Spitfire ad in January 1990. His gear situation was much improved the second time around.

Sean Sheffey has been in the game a long time now. He is trying to make a comeback with help from Jake Brown and Blind these days. Shef would have been riding for Shut in 1989. It doesn't seem like it has been twenty years.

Left: Thrasher - October 1989 Volume 9 Number 10

Right: Thrasher - December 1989 Volume 9 Number 12

Note: I had been posting the ads in chronological order, but Spitfire ran vertical half pagers in October and December. For layout purposes, I paired these two together.

John Schultes has a pain in the ass attitude.
