Matt Reason #5.



"I skate as much as I can, usually I just leave my house and cruise towards Love and City Hall, hitting all kinds of stuff on the way. I ride a wider board, eight-and-a-half-inches wide, 58mm wheels. The bigger the wheel, the faster you roll. You can ride smoother on rougher surfaces, allowing you to skate a lot more spots."

Fairest among thousands. An East Coast legend who left us far too soon.

Eight and a half inch wide board in 96. That's wild. I don't even want to ride a board that wide today.
