Mike Cardona.



8/26/1978 - 10/5/1998.

Mike was Quim's brother. The Cardonas are from Scotch Plains, New Jersey and they grew up skating all the East Coast spots. He rode for Real, Spitfire, Thunder, and Airwalk. Mike did a lot of street grabs and big ollies, which was a little different than a lot of what was going on at the time. I liked his style.
