Skull Skates’ team, as of January 1989. Duane Peters, bossman Paul Ducommun, and Tod Swank. Dream team. From Skateboard! magazine.
Something to think about, from Rad, in May of 1989.
More vintage Death Box. Alex Moul, who in May 1991, hadn’t been to the States yet. Needless to say Flip did go on to experiment with a few gimmicks, alongside everybody else.
It’s well known that Death Box changed their name to Flip and moved to America. It’s not as well known just how good the original Death Box stuff was. Product line from May, 1990.
Since Ed’s Epicly Later’d is getting everybody excited this week, I thought it would be appropriate to post this interview from Rad magazine (issue 100!), September 1991.
Close-enough spelling, from the days before everything was emailed. Geoff Rowley riding an Alex Moul board. Perfect.
Kingy took this photo, for the July 1992 issue of Skateboard! magazine.
Rad magazine hanging with Tom Penny in Oxford, in April 1994. Before he goes to the US… The 360 flip photo is one of my favourites ever, you can pretty much feel how cold it is. Photos by Andy Horsley.
Jason Jessee catches a stalefish in the February 1988 issue of Rad magazine, which likely means he did it sometime towards the end of 1987. No photographer credit here, but I’d guess Keenan.
Some inspiring vintage nostalgia and soul-searching from Rad magazine, July of 1988. ‘Mad’ Mike Johns carves, with his own style, like it’s the best summer ever.
Lance Mountain, rock n’ roll on ghetto street vert in July, 1988. Uncredited picture (TLB?) from Rad magazine, a month later.
