Chet Thomas #4.
"Did a certain manu's hard-working employee take exception to a recent Chet Thomas advert? Did he not send a letter to Public land? Does Ed Reategui now gleefully carry around the letter and laugh derisively? Is this the beginning of a war between the blue-collar types and the glamour boys?"
It was a big deal when Chet left Powell Peralta to turn pro for the brand new Public Skateboards. It probably shouldn't have been as big a deal since he would soon be riding for Santa Cruz and Public would be gone. This might have been their only ad.
