Hugh "Bod" Boyle #4.
Bod was a big time vert shredder from England in the 1980s and early 1990s. He was pro for G & S and Santa Cruz. Neil Blender's band Toxic Death Sentence wrote an ode to him for a song in Alien Workshop's Memory Screen video. He works in the industry these days. There's a bunch of old Strange Notes videos on YouTube that I had never seen before that has ripping from Bod and all the other Santa Cruz riders from back in the day.
Props to Matt Bennett's for his part in the Dekline video. He made a good one. I forgot to mention that last week when it debuted on the Thrasher website. Are they making a DVD of True Blue?
It's December 26th in Western New York and I'm going to set up a new board to go skate outdoors. The weather is nice today.
