Every so often I post a re-up for Old School Sundays, and this weeks post is dedicated to one of my childhood heroes, Hutch team mate Larry Bull who was so creative and definitely ahead of the time. Hit play for his Tizer World Cup run from 1987!
Following last weeks Ian Clemens, let’s go back to the 1986 AFA Masters contest in Columbus, Ohio with Martin Aparijo!
Every so often, I go with with a repost for OSS and this weeks truly deserves it! Underground shredder, Ian Clemens was so underrated, bar flip squeakers and the backwards facing scuffing move that doesn’t even have a name at around the 1:40 mark is amazing still to this day! Enjoy this one!
As I am here at the Birmingham NEC this weekend, I was having flashbacks to the 80’s and Bob Haro’s demo at the NEC with commentary from UK legend, Tim March. This weeks OSS is dedicated to the man who began it all for us! Thanks Bob!
One of my earliest memories growing up was going to Southsea Skatepark to watch the GT World Tour in 1985 and watching Eddie Fiola and Dave Breed tear it up. During that same tour, Eddue and Dave appeared on a UK kids programme called “Wacaday”, take a look and trip down memory lane.
Old school vibes this week with the likes of Maurice “Drob” Meyer, Robert Peterson, Karl Rothe and more at Beach Park Cyclery – KPIX 5 1986.
The Haro show at the BMX Cologne contest 2012 kicked ass, featuring Dave Nourie, Ron Wilkerson, Brian Blyther, Mike Dominguez, Dennis McCoy and Kevin Martin on the mic. Old school vibes from Cologne.
Following Stuart Crumpton’s edit earlier in the week, it only makes sense that this weeks OSS is dedicated to Eddie Fiola! Check out his run from the AFA Finals in Wichita, Kansas 1988.
With the AFA Round 3 contest going down in Houston, Texas this weekend. Let’s go back to 1989, and some practice footage from AFA Round 1 featuring the likes of Eric Emerson, Bill Nitschke (who won the Old School AFA class this weekend in Texas!), Bill Neumann and many more!
This weeks OSS is dedicated to the inventor of the rolaid, Derek Schott! Check out his great run from the AFA Masters in Tucson, Arizona, and you can see his signature rolaid at the on minute mark, so good!
