Working with LookBack Library I have had the chance to see tons of skateboarding I was always too young for. The basic joy of 80’s skateboarding, along with everyone just kind of figuring it out is charming. I have also been ashamed to admit how many legends I don’t know. We will be working and someone will come up and be half interested in the mags and talk a little, and when they leave I am asked “Do you know who you were just talking to?” it is good for keeping me from being starstruck but also shoes how little I know.
A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to meet YoYo from Germany. No only is he older then I ever paid attention to, but he is also a freestyle skater. He came through super nice and willing to chit-chat about his tricks hes invented and showing off his custom board. So with a sharp left turn here is some freestyle skating in sunny San Diego.
