Simon Woodstock.

Yeah, I'm going there.

Simon rode for Black Label, Koklieb, New School and Sonic in the early 1990s. He had a habit of riding unusual skateboard creations. This included putting trucks on a skimboard and ironing board, bolting two regular skateboards together and replacing the griptape with carpet. He was known to wear silly outfits like clown costumes, Santa suits or skate barefoot. He even managed to score a pro model shoe from Vans. There was a clip featuring Simon and his weird skateboards on MTV Sports with Dan Cortese.

I'm going to stop now.

Congrats to Chrome Ball on hitting the 500 mark.

This is awesome, skateboarding lacks originality like Simon. I have his pro model Vans still in the box
