It feels like a few weeks since I dropped an Old School Sundays video, and today’s OSS is dedicated to Aaron Dull out of San Francisco, California who helped develop a lot of scuffing tricks in the late 80’s. You can watch his run from the 1988 AFA Masters, Round 5, Wayne, NJ right here…
It feels like a while since I have done a Old School Sundays. Just a couple of days ago, Martti Kuoppa posted a rad clip from 101 Trix Part 2 on the MOC instagram page. Check out Chris Day’s run from the AFA Master Round 5 1987 at the William Patterson College in Wayne, NJ. Chris’ riding was inspirational during the late 80’s, respect!
This week we go back to 1988, and this flawless run from one of my favourite riders growing up. Carly Garcia, doing it for O-zone out of Nor Cal. What an amazing run for the time, nowadays Carly is producing fine art paintings in the Bay area. This is well worth a watch, if you missed it the last time I posted it.
After a few weeks off Old School Sundays it feels like time to get back to some old school flatland and it’s always interesting to see where we all came from and how we have moved on. This week we go back to Bercy 1984 and a big show from RL Osborn and Eddie Fiola, always amazing crowds in Bercy. Old school heads will enjoy this one!

For this weeks Old School Sundays, we go back to 1986 and a CW freestyle team show at Haack’s Cycle in Madison, Wisconsin. Featuring some great old school riding from Dizz Hicks, Ceppie Maes and Gary Pollak, the man who invented the pinky squeak. Enjoy this trip down memory lane.
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.
Sometimes the borders get blurred between Old and Mid School, this 17 Expert run from Rob Compton at the NBL Nationals 1990 in Raleigh, NC does just that. The beginnings of Mid School tricks in old school uniform, Rob always killed it with a really fast, powerful style. Many of you might not know the name, but get to know it.
This weeks OSS is dedicated to the Chairman, Martin Aparijo who is still riding to this day and was shredding at the One Love Jam in Newport Beach, in So Cal yesterday.
