Salman started off as an am for Powell Peralta and turned pro for Real. He won Thrasher's SOTY for 1993 because he took skating switch to a whole other level by doing things like switch ollies over fire hyrdants. He also rode for the Firm for most of the 1990s. He had a pro shoe for Vans called the Camel Toe. I want to say that he was the second person to have a pro model shoe for Vans after Steve Caballero. Big Sal is rocking Legend Status at the Black Label and working for Steve and Eric's little skatepark project nowadays.
