When he was 10, he started going in the water again. I think they put some kind of clear grip on the top. At that point, I realized that pool riding was the future for me, and skateboarding, in general. Already Have A Deck? I was thinking I was pimping, all rockabilly, looking good, a smooth kind of guy. A lot of those guys were interlinked through the Sims team or other teams. I was there as an observer. I could skate there in six or seven minutes. There were a lot of pools at that point. He had a wicked tail tap. We had a pretty good search and strike team. There was a well-established hierarchy of who the locals were and how you conducted yourself and what you would do in the water. Now I understand it all. We were seeing Gerry Lopez surf Pipeline in slow motion. He was just one of those Hawaiian dudes. Tony is pushing hard though, so I had to keep up. It seemed like a monster. Can we call them Dogtown Skates? We ended up having electric pumps and gas pumps, extension cords, gas cans, brooms, hoses, duct tape, street signs and whatever we could find to cover up the drains or if the light was knocked out. You had your Baldy Pipeline guys. He was the guy that was in Mission: Impossible, the TV series. It was at an abandoned place and then we found a pool pump. You were just riding the pool. What about skating pipes? There was Lakewood with that halfpipe and the rust bowls in the Marina where Stacy learned all his slides. Communities were starting to organize themselves and rally behind getting legal skateparks. The second time I took him out at Bay Street in the summertime and it was a really windy day and it was only about two-foot faces, but the ocean was moving all over the place and it was just an uncomfortable experience for him. I did all the organized sports. We put as much weight as we could on the back of this thing. You were already hanging out with Biniak and Wentzle, right? The solid core boards were cheaper. Stecyk being the journalist that he is, realized that there was this hotbed of skaters going on out there. Shogo was riding them. No one was doing those low surf maneuvers until those stinger boards came out and Mark Liddell, Larry Bertlemann and Buttons Kaluhiokalani were coming up. In the meantime, Tony did his deal, and then all these guys started coming out of the woodwork, wanting to do companies. We told him we had done the photo shoot with Bolster, and he looks down and sees that Makaha patch. The Canyon Pool was this huge wide kidney. Suddenly, people started manufacturing skateboards again. He rode those rust bowls for hours and hours learning his tricks. So you guys figured out the hush-hush secret spots, too. Eventually, that got busted too and they filled it up with water. The boards, to this day, are some of the most beautiful boards ever made. We kind of got lazy. They were just as good as any board that any manufacturer was making at the time. I was in that dumbass movie starring Leif Garrett. He does CSI and has had a huge career. Paul Constantineau was riding them. The first time I ever saw Jay was at Malibu.

The biggest killer in skateboarding was the guy that got his license or got a girlfriend or probably both in conjunction. I was there as an observer. Is this bank too steep? Then I started hearing about the banks at the schoolyards in the Palisades. He was just going for it. Lonnie Toft had one and I had one. Stecyk dresses him up and puts him up against the wall with this gnarly Dogtown graffiti and rats and all this stuff. We had been doing the contest circuit with the Zephyr team and then the Sims team. Me, Biniak and Palfreyman were all the same age. There were tons of pools and then we started finding these abandoned houses. First Name. They were the same trucks and the same shitty clay wheels. It was maybe 14 or 15 feet on the tallest bank. Hobie Alter? He was just one of those Hawaiian dudes. The Devonshire pool, it was great because it was at an old house that had been abandoned forever in a bad part of the Valley. They were heavy as logs. We were trying to figure out schedules of when we could go do stuff. I looked at it like creating a circuit. Did it have Waldo in it? Then it became, if you were riding a skateboard, you were some kind of daredevil. He had the tail tap and the layback. It was this guy, Steve Field. I just remember Logan. The only place you could get that was at the art store, so we went to the art store and five-finger-lifted this stuff, mixed it up and clamped the kicktail on, but we first had to make our own kicktail with the grinder. Not everything was the smoothest of rides because the skateboards were so skinny and the trucks were skinny. Shreddi was there and he was the little rat kid. Am I going to go too fast? That would kind of kill it. It seemed like a monster. No one was doing those low surf maneuvers until those stinger boards came out and Mark Liddell, Larry Bertlemann and Buttons Kaluhiokalani were coming up. After a while, he figured out what was going on over there, so this Mission: Impossible guy, started calling the cops on us, so we had to start going stealth on him. It was one of the first cameras with a motor drive. It had an offset wall and it went around and it had a hip on it. We were still making boards by hand and selling them in the neighborhood. It had that flat sheet-metal baseplate with the triangular hole pattern. Shreddi was a great skateboarder. Then there were guys that were from the north side of town like where Tony Alva was from. My dad was always pretty good about putting tools in my hand if there was a project around the house. View all 22 products. It was so quiet that it sounded like you were on a magic carpet ride. When the Sharp brothers started covering us, the Dogtown guys and the Valley guys all got to intermingle. At the time, the Zephyr team was making in-roads with their surf team and they used to have competitions with other shops. If you watch the Dogtown documentary, you see Stacy say that he was the only guy with a car. Popular Custom Builds View all. They were riding these pieces of plywood, like a glorified lunch tray with two fins on it and a handle. Pretty soon, you were at the top pushing full speed and dropping in. This is where I thank Tom Sims for everything he did to push me into making skateboards. We went to San Diego and Santa Barbara. The police came a lot too. Wes Humpston worked at the shop, but he was gone by then, because he was a couple of years older. When my dad would take me to the beach, I saw Miki Dora paddle out at the Cove. Guys were starting to ride short boards right before the twin fin.
Homie… Big brother, family values… Whatta ya got??? I come from the Muir clan. I grew up on a little street on the south side of Santa Monica. I totally get that. They were always supportive. They come from a different day and age, but they still have an understanding of what it was like. It gets a lot of compression and it will kick back on you. I think he just enjoyed the blues clubs. They were black patent leather with the pink suede toe on the front. I was thinking I was pimping, all rockabilly, looking good, a smooth kind of guy. Every new scene is taken from another scene. Did you start surfing immediately? I could walk to the beach in 10 minutes or ride there in five minutes. I could skate there in six or seven minutes. You used to be able to time the lights, so it was easy. To us, skateboarding back then was about how far you could go down the hill and who could go the furthest. My first clay wheel board was a Sears Wipe-Out Fiberglass board. Everyone bought shit at Sears back then. I wish I could have gotten a Makaha, but that was the premium brand back then. During that first skateboard craze, every company jumped on it and even orange juice companies had skateboards. Someone had created a geometry for skateboarding that, to this day, most trucks are based on. I believe it was the Chicago truck. It was pre-Sure-Grip. Chicago had the bomb trucks. They were a little more quality. They came off of roller-skates and got into skateboarding. I remember seeing those and thinking they were a far more superior quality truck. They were the same truck that was on a roller skate. They just put it on a piece of wood. It had that flat sheet-metal baseplate with the triangular hole pattern. The trucks were pop-riveted onto the metal plate. You could actually turn on that board. The next thing was to go down the hill and make the turn at the bottom at full speed. We were pushing speeds of 20 or 25 MPH. The first rush from skateboarding, for me, was that you got on this board and it gained speed and you felt the wind. This motion created an adrenalin rush and then you wanted to go do it again, and you wanted to do it longer and faster. Then it became, if you were riding a skateboard, you were some kind of daredevil. We were riding bikes, go-karts, mini-bikes and whatever else would move. We would push the limits. That was a little later on, but it was about pushing the limits because no one knew what you could do yet. Then these other kids in the neighborhood that were older that surfed had their longboards right out of the Dale Velzy, Hap Jacobs, Miki Dora era. The paper route was ridiculous slave labor. I had to go fold the paper, bag it and then throw it to all of these houses. It took three hours a day, and then I had to collect the money from the customers. If you were really making money, it was because people gave you tips. I was trying to ride with it to the beach on my bike. For a few years before I had the surfboard, I was emulating all the surf moves with all the older kids on a skateboard. I did all the organized sports.
