...BEFORE I PICKED UP A SKATEBOARD I WAS SERVIN THAT "GROUND WORK" WITH THE GREMLINS (MY BREAKDANCE CREW) UNDER THE B-BOY ALIAS 👉🏾BABY WIZ (DONT LAUGH)😂 ...TRUE STORY!

...SHOTS FIRED!

WHO'S OLD ENOUGH TO REMEMBER THE DAYS WHEN THE "STREETPLANT" WER ALL THE RAGE? REMEMBER THE STREETPLANT CIRCLE? HOWABOUT HOHO'S AND BUSTED FINGER TIPS? ...I SHOT THIS ONE THE OTHER DAY WHILE I WAS REMINISCING ABOUT MY BEGINNINGS AND THINKIN BOUT HOW TIME TRUELY DOES FLYS AND HOW LUCKY I AM TO HAVE FOUND A PASSION THAT HAS STOOD THE TEST OF TIME. I HAVENT BEEN A PRO SKATEBOARDER IN OVER 15 YEARS BUT I LOVE IT AS MUCH AS I EVER HAVE... I WAS ALSO THINKING ABOUT HOW FUNNY A PICTURE OF A 6' 2" TALL GUY DOING A STRAIGHT LEGGED STREETPLANT LOOKS.😂

I STOPPED BY TO SEE MY GOOD FRIENDS AT @pharmacyhollywood YESTERDAY, WHAT A TRIP SEEING A BOARD WITH MY NAME ON IT ON THE WALL AGAIN. THANK YOU @planbofficial FOR WELCOMING ME AND THANK YOU @pharmacyhollywood FOR BEING SO SUPPORTIVE OF ME AND MY ENDEAVORS❤️

....NOT SURE WHAT MADE ME THINK I COULD DO THIS, LATE BIGSPIN, IVE NEVER TRIED IT BEFORE... GAVE IT A SHOT AND IT WORKED OUT👍🏾 TRIVIAL FACT: IM RESPONSIBLE FOR THE NAMING OF THE TRICK "BIGSPIN". @BRIANLOTTI WAS THE FIRST TO DO IT AND WAS SHOOTING A SEQUENCE FOR TRANSWORLD SKATEBOARDING MAG AROUND 1989, THE PHOTOGRAPHER ASKED BRIAN WHAT TO CALL THE TRICK IN THE ARTICLE AND I TOLD HIM TO CALL IT THE BIGSPIN AS A PLAY ON HIS NAME ("LOTTI") WHOM I REFERRED TO AS BRIAN "LOTTERY". I STILL THINK HE DOES THEM THE BEST... WHO DO YOU THINK DOES THE BEST #BIGSPINS ?
