Skip Pronier #3.

This trick is crazy.

I graduated college in 1996 and I think for this week I've been working off a theme of skaters that I was a fan of while I was still a student. Skip definitely made the list. He had an interview in Transworld where he talked about how skating was getting good again and wheels were getting bigger.

Thrasher - August 1996 Volume 16 Number 8

That is crazy. They didn't even have Black Label videos around that time did they? Would love to see footage.

I don't think the Label ever made a video. I'd like to see one from that time frame. I'm sure somebody must have been filming when they were out getting pictures for ads. Maybe some of the footage wound up in a 411 or a Thrasher video?

Skip Pronier, the "mastermind" behind Skip's Ditch, which is still featured in videos to this day.

That is a really crazy photo, as it's really easy to get mangled up in those bars.
