I remember the first time I saw so many videos and just had my mind fucked the DC video stands out in my mind. Fucking AVE's nollie back crook on the USC curved ledge, all of Josh Kalis' part when gangstar comes on it's just like holy balls, and Stevie's part when he blasts his pop shove rewinds like crazy high, that just made my mind explode.
All of these videos are great but I will say the absolute best era for skateboarding was the early nineties with the Gonz, Cardiel, Stranger, koston, carrol, all the SF guys, and like Chris Pastras and Harold Hunter on the east coast. That was what fucking skateboarding was about.
Not some fucking over hyped shit on prime time television, or dudes sponsored by target, real fucking street skating. And the videos weren't huge productions they were raw fucking skating, people just out having fun and happen to be filming their tricks. Keep it real gentlemen.
