Flashback Friday I wanted to break out the old Powell Peralta Ray Barbee tarot cards deck that was given to me few years back. I think of that time as one of the best times to skate. This is when shaped boards were still a thing before it switched to popsicle shapes. Seemed like tricks were starting to go bigger and bigger and street skating was dominating. It also was still when skateboarding wasn’t accepted as much either. If you wore skate brands 99% you skated not like today when I see parents and random people wearing skate clothes you know didn’t and don’t skate. I always try and teach what the past is to younger skaters and how different it is now. Knowledge is power and if you truly are a skateboard enthusiast you love the knowledge of the past to push the future. -Blair Hess-
