Eric Dressen #3.
"Even though you're a top pro you can still really enjoy skateboarding. I still love skateboarding as much, even more now than I did when I was a little kid, just for the pure joy of skateboarding. I appreciate things a lot more now because I realize I'm getting older and I'm not going to be young forever."
It's time to flash back to the days when both our heroes and ourselves had less gray hair. I picked out a quick sampling of stuff from 1989 and 1991 to fill up the month of December. I figured I needed to include the Bones Brigade after the Animal Chin 30th anniversary video was released. There's also a few of the more obscure things I post each year, which means the people who wind up here searching for Toxic Wheels will be happy. I got a nice batch of board porn from a mail order catalog, too.
Congrats to Kyle Walker on winning SOTY.
Stay strong, Oakland.
