A couple of the first skate videos I ever saw featured sessions from Pay and Play... can't remember what they were called though. They were on a mix tape with other videos from the late 80's.
Anyhow, I was 5 in 1987, and I can remember my brother rolling down the back hill on what would eventually become my first skateboard.
That's it...time for a break. They just built a skatepark across the street from me! YayyYYyYyyy!!! ( I'm not kidding! )

That is awsome. I wish I was alive a period in which skaters were all one and no one hated on eachother for what they wore, or if they sucked, and all of that bullshit you know? Ed, was there ever really a time like that?

In Heavy Metal how old was Ethan Fowler? He looks 16 in some parts but in other parts he looks like he's only a kid.
Sick ollie by the way. That's some huge pop

Are those hi-top chucks?
Props to you my niggah!

Ethan was 15 or 16 in that video, but some of his footage was even older.
The kid has been around a long time!

I heard SMOG play in the Amoeba store in LA. My friend Brendan is a big fan...

There was a time like that in the late 80's
Then it was the opposite of that in the early 90's Everyone was hyper-critical
Then it got close to the late 80's attitude again in the late 90's
And now, jocks run everything.

This photo is practically an antique; I wasn't even alive until a couple more years.

Yeah jocks rule the world and it sucks big time. Everyone is labeled and you can't have you're own style goin' on or else you're a loser and everyone hates on you...SKATEBOARDING MUST STOP BEING MAIN STREAM AND GO BACK TO BEING AN OUTCAST SPORT. ditch the x games and all that junk!

I feel like skateboarding is getting more creative and accepting again. I see more kids skating ramps and trying different tricks these days than I did 7 or 8 years ago. At least that's the way it is here.
