Ed Templeton & Mike Vallely.

Ah, the tricks of 1992.

Ed and Mike did TV with financial backing from what was left of Vision in 1992. TV quickly changed to Television as the pair of former New Dealers joined up with the Zero Two company. The spelled out version of TV wasn't around long either. Ed started Toy Machine soon after and Mike went back to Powell, started Transit, rode for Black Label, helmed the brief existence of Vallely Skateboards and finally found a home at Element.

Television was around long enough to get Steve Berra to ride for them, but not much longer. I think that was after his first stint at Birdhouse.

Both of those sequences are pretty clean... and not video grabs. LOL

Trip down memory lane! I had all these mags back in the day. Do you have the Ed Templeton sequence where he does an impossible to nose blunt slide? Loved that so much I learned how to do it disaster slide but never had the accuracy to land blunt.
