California Cheap Skates 1991.
It's 1991, stand up and take a look around.
I had the Matt Hensley Church Glass and the Danny Way Street with the Volkswagen ripoff. That board was super light compared to the Hensley. I think it met an early demise due to nose damage from launch ramp trickery, which was a bummer. H-Street/Planet Earth/Life and World Industries/Blind were going strong with newer companies like Real, New Deal, and New School just getting started. Powell, G & S, Santa Cruz/SMA were holding things down for the old timers club. I really like the Black Label decks. Any time you can work in Max Evans to a post, it is a good thing.
The nollie flip that Mike Carroll does on flat in the new LA Courthouse clip from Crailtap is great.
Tony Hawk and Bucky Lasek do some doubles at the Hawk compound. The photo is by Sin Egelja.
This is the Fall 1991 catalog.
