Tony Hawk & Kevin Staab.
You can't go wrong with a good backside ollie.
It's going to be 2008 for the next couple weeks. I picked out a variety of new faces to go with older heads that have kept it rolling all along.
Kevin was pro for Sims back in the 1980s. He had a couple different companies in the 1990s, like Shine and 90. He also floated around in the vert no man's land for a while before landing on Kris Markovich's Hollywood. That didn't last too long and soon he was picked up by Tony for Birdhouse. He still rides for them today as well as working for the company. Kevin invented a few tricks over the years, including the ollie blunt and fakie ollie.
Tony is another guy who keeps on going. He just scored a Gest Board on Krooked and dropped a new part of 80s inspired trickery.
