Mark Gonzales #20.

"You go skateboarding 'cause you're uncomfortable and you need to feel better."

The Gonz kickin' it. I'd been looking for this ad for a while, but couldn't find it. Don't let anybody fool you tomorrow.

Vert Is Dead will be back on Monday, April 10th. It's spring break from this thing. I've got Tantrum Distribution, random stuff from Thrasher (Memphis Shoes), and a few other tidbits lined up for April.

For the quote: Transworld - August 2002 Volume 20 Number 8

Thrasher - September 1997 Volume 17 Number 9

DC shoes? That caught me off-guard.

Yeah, I was going to mention those. Everybody was wearing 'em in the mid 1990s. This would have been probably after Simple fizzled out and before Gonz got on Adidas.
