Nanda Zipp.

Nanda rode for Sonic, Physics, Thunder and Este. His name is Hindu in origin. He got into skateboarding when he moved to Visalia, California at age eleven. This was at the time when Tom Knox was ruling and Karma Tsocheff was starting to come up. Nanda even skated vert. During the time he was pro, he was going to college and studying graphic design.

It looks like Nanda is doing a couple of things these days. His name comes up with a company called SiteForm, which lists him as the creative director. SiteForm is a website design and marketing company. He is also a senior teacher at the Dharma Ocean Foundation. The Dharma Ocean Foundation is a nonprofit Buddhist educational center in Colorado.

One of the best names in skateboarding.It takes a close second to Zozi Bernat.

That Physics video is a good one. I'm so sad that my favorite videos (those from the early '90s) are only available in VHS format. It seems only the classics are getting the proper DVD treatment, as far as releasing them with their original music.

And companies would rather release clips on the web than including all the extras on a 2nd disc where it belongs. And I taking aim specifically at Emerica, since all these B Sides keep popping up. If you make a video and want people to buy it, extras like that are the shit that needs to be included to entice buyers. And enough with these Deluxe editions. Make one video, include everything and be done with it.

Sorry for the preachin'.
