"I had ridden for H-Street for a long time, and I wasn't happy with a lot of the stuff going on. It got to a point where they were just putting random people on the team. I remember looking at the team list at one point and just being like, 'Who are all these dudes?' It just got blown out of proportion. It was definitely rolling the dice on our part. Mike Ternasky and I had to take the first step. Plan B was basically an idea we had settled on. We had to get it to a point where other people would be motivated to take the step with us. I really didn't know how the other riders would react. Once we started looking at the Questionable footage, I mean just seeing Pat Duffy's shit, we knew that we had the heaviest, progressive, modern skateboarding video that anyone had ever seen. It became pretty apparent early on."
Big Drill Car.
Danny closed out Questionable with a three song part of complete vert and street destruction. The guy does not mess around and continues to push the boundaries of what is possible on a skateboard to this day.
That wraps up a two week look back at Questionable and the early days of Plan B. I finally watched the video again the last couple of nights and I'm surprised that I got nearly all the parts in order from memory. My switch of Pat Duffy and Matt Hensley was an editor's choice. The only place where things went out of order was Mike Carroll's part came before Rick Howard's. I guess all those repeated viewings paid off.
Tune in next week for the beginnings of Girl.
