Ricky Oyola #2.



Don't mess with his Z-Rollers.

It's all things loosely associated with Plan B this week. More or less. I think I'm going to finally step up to my idea about the early history of Consolidated next week.

The photos are by T. Eric Monroe.

I remember those z skins that were all the hype for a while there. Tails slides, nose slides, board slides. Shit would weigh down your setup though. I slapped some on a Vision Joe Gruber board I had back then LOL

I like in the Slap pals interview with Ricky how he talks about his Z days.

Did anyone actually ride Z rollers? I don't even think I saw any.

I don't think I've ever seen a Z-Roller in action. I think maybe I've seen them in a skateshop, but I'm not sure.

Big Brother reviewed them for their truck issue.

Hensley had a photo where he had a Z-Skinz rail on his board so I'm sure that helped move a bunch of those.
