diamond head, hawaii

back in 1988, we were blessed with maria's pool. this pool sat on a multi-million dollar lot at the foot of diamond head. we found the pool filled with debris and some water, the troops were called in to clean it and remove the huge coping. those enlisted for duty were: gibo, the general gary, gdog, moblow, soblow, mike koch, a visiting dave hackett & jonny ray and more in tow. a decent egg pool in one of the most coveted neighborhoods in hawaii.
pictured above is a lean-mean skating machine named jesse martinez who was visiting with zipper from venice beach. known for his pioneering street moves he took to the pool like the rest - raw. check the pic closer - slob grab frontside grind stylish, riding on his brand new debut model from sma/world industries, soon after to be called world industries, bla bla bla and rest is history as they say.

venice on the halfshell

our brother: fingers murray with probably the best pic capturing the "main wall" action on the boardwalk of venice beach, so. califas. pure commitment and style. looks like he is almost carving / thrusting to hit the lip. hosoi "rockets" bra! we rode for the rockets team back in the day, speed wheels had the best formula. the locs held it down & the next generation is here on the same grounds. boyZ in the hood. get a day pass before you visit.

**** who is that homie on the top of the wall? it's one our own from hawaii - billy deans ! now working at skateboarder magazine - classic.
