Mike Carroll #10.

"Not quite Koston over the Lukang gap. Sorry."

Old school December starts tomorrow. I'm done with the year 2000, as it has dragged on for far too long. I thought that since skateboarding was getting bigger that there would be plenty of material for an in depth look, but oddly there wasn't. In the future, I'm not going to spend more than a month on any one time period, so 20 to 25 scans tops before changing it up. Carroll seems to be the right way to end this section as he has roots in the late 1980s/early 1990s and will be a perfect transition to what I have planned next.

This particular photo of Mike is from when Lakai was a company, but they didn't have any shoes made yet. You can tell because he is wearing the second Eric Koston model from éS with a Lakai shirt. It takes a lot less time to make t-shirts than it does sneakers.

For Friday, it will be that guy who rode for that one company, made an amazing video part, then switched teams and disappeared for a long time.

One of the best front foot flicks of all time! Can't get enough of Carroll's skating.

It would be sick if you could do a whole section on these Girl ads from that period. Stoked.
