I remember checking out this @ed.templeton "Deformer" board at @oliveandjamesdad old shop Premier in NY, and thinking it was a little narrow. Was it really only 7 inches wide?!? That's skinnier than a freestyle board and Ed has pretty big feet. Anyone out there ever have this deck and if so, was it really only a 7???
I think every high school library in Upstate NY had the same "learn how to skateboard" book from 1972 on it's shelf. Pretty sure that's where this graphic showing the proper way to roll out of a slam is from. Whoever published this book musta made millions off it because I'm still seeing it everywhere. Oh yeah, John Cardiel barrel roll board by Anti Hero.
RIP Greg Allman. He's tickling those ivory's up in the Heavens now. Speaking of Greg Allman, I wrote my Senior thesis about the song Mountain Jam and its 33 1/3 minutes of pure unadulterated rock and roll for my Masters degree in English. No, I didn't go to UVM either.
