Billy Marks.



Ping pong ball wizard.

Billy was riding for the Firm and Etnies in 2001. His first ad ever might have been for a regrettable truck sponsor, but let's not go there. Billy would soon get on Toy Machine and he's been with them ever since. He also rides for Fallen. I had a couple or three pairs of his shoe and I liked them. They were a cupsole with a reasonable amount of padding around the toe area, hint hint shoe companies.

Funny to think this guy was kicked off of The Firm because Lance Mountain didn't see a future in pro skating for Billy.

I remember reading about a Toy Machine tour where Templeton gave everyone nicknames, and he gave Billy the nickname "The Skid" - Billy "The Skid" Marks.
