Neil Blender #8.
Neil does a frontside invert in St. Louis in 1988. He's wearing a Lester Kasai shirt.
88 was a new shoe company in 2002 that was backed by Osiris. The team included Kris Markovich, Neil Blender, J.T. Aultz, Justin Strubing, Kristian Svitak and Corey Duffel. There were a few financial issues that led to the end of 88 and the start of Vox. The name came from Kris Markovich picking his favorite year in skateboarding.
Speaking of Vox, the new Darren Navarrette kicks look cool.
I got the Transworld Cinematographer video yesterday. I haven't watched all of it, but I really like the Alien Workshop section.
