When you think that people sweat over Rolaids now in 2018, me included. It’s amazing to think that Derek Schott was throwing them clean in his runs (second attempt) in 1987. This weeks OSS is dedicated to the man that invented the trick. Respect!

In my younger years, I must have watched this AFA Masters Finals: Socco Freestyle Championship contest on VHS thousands of times. Interviews with RL Osborn, Martin Aparijo and Dennis McCoy going into the finals for the year end, who won this one? If your into the old school, you’ll love this one! At 49:59 long, save this one for a quiet day.

Awesome battle between Yuki Itoh and Masashi Itani at the recent Freestyle Fes contest for third place. For the pivot line Yuki throws down at the 5:17 mark is amazing, well worth watching.
Great footage from the AFA archives for this weeks OSS, we go back to 1988 and the Ohio AFA Masters featuring Gerry Smith, Joe Gruttola, Krys Dauchy, Jeff Cotter & Steve Mulder. Lookout for Joe Gruttola’s infamous double decade at the 3:47 mark.
