Thanks to the Crailtap Couch we now know that Michael Burnett was a bigger fan of Alan Losi when everybody else liked Matt Hensley.
I don't know that much Losi, except that he started entering contests and getting coverage again in 1990 and people were stoked. Two of my friends spent a lot of time doing Losi grinds on the fun box in my driveway. I'm sure the PVC made the grind nice and easy. The trick is like a lipslide, only you are grinding on your front truck with the rest of the board over the obstacle. It was seen in some of the H - Street videos and occasionally makes a rare appearance these days.
