Wizards of Radical.
Back in the day Nate rode for Toy Machine, Planet Earth Clothing and Adio. These days he is pro for Roger and gets his kicks from Huf.
Yeah, I'm a little surprised I picked an Adio ad, too.
Adio was started up in the late 1990s by Planet Earth with help from K2. The original team included Steve Berra, Tony Hawk, Kris Markovich, Jamie Thomas, and Jeremy Wray. The company caught on fairly quickly and soon expanded to include Kenny Anderson, Bam Margera, Danny Montoya, and Brian Sumner, to name a few. They were around for most of the decade and fizzled out in the last two years. Their notable contribution to the skateboard video library was the One Step Beyond video that featured parts from some of the skateboarders I just mentioned.
Anybody else still think Gary Scott Davis instead of Go Skateboarding Day when they see the initials GSD?
Note: Nate's got a smoke in his mouth. How'd that get by the fun police at Transworld?
