c'mon - shuv revert isn't a flip trick.

Mouse is the best skate video ever - but I would put Hot Chocolate up there, as well as Sorry and Cheese and Crackers - cause mini ramp is where it's at - speaking of which, I'll add the Chicogoff (sp?), the new Volcom joint, just for Rowley and Penny's backwoods miniramp session. And - jeeze I just keep thinking on them - the DC video, because that shit definately changed the game and Van England is so fucking GNAR.

Skaters? Jerry Hsu, Chris Haslam, PJ Ladd, Chris Cole and doctorgnar

Tricks? Nollie tre flips, late bs flip, fakie bigspin tre, nollie heel, fs flip...and, uh, nollie bigspin 540 flip...

edit: great thread btw

The entire Zoo crew circa mid 90's was just killin it standard. They may not of been the best skaters but they were always fun to watch, and getting to see em up close and personal made for some exciting afternoons when I was a youth.

Always liked Ricky Oyola, good to see him gettin love.

Harold.

Kareem campbell.
