Israel Forbes #5.
Israel is from Santa Cruz, California. He was sponsored by the second version of Sims when the company was distributed by NHS in 1991. Izzy would then switch over to SMA and finally Santa Cruz. Once he outgrew the early 1990s odd flip tricks, he developed a solid style with a lot of big ollies, 50-50s, and feeble grinds. It looks like he's effortlessly cruising around and catching some air.
We're going to the Small Room next week.
