Rainy weekend... Ol' Skate Clips - just like beer & pizza...
Anyway - this week's installment: Gershon Mosely. When I first started skating, this guy was my absolute fav. I had seen a few pics of Mosely here & there, then Powell came out w/ Suburban Diners.... His steelo was sick, and he pulled a nollie 270s/f/sn/s - came out switch too....(in a line!) I remember him killing a mini in some old Thrasher vid as well.... I even saw him at the first Warped Tour (triple o.g. over here) and asked him for his board after he murdered that ol' portable halfpipe thing they had - remember that thing? They had the setup dude in a 411 commercial now that I think about it. Then like 2 months later he was interviewed in Transworld and said how much he hates kids asking for his board.....
Although Suburban Diners is collecting dust somewhere in my old attic - I was able to find this part. It was his 411 profile - the one he did for 'best of' was good, but it's essentially the same clips a few years later. But seriously - especially considering the quality of every other skater (except world/girl) at the time - this shit is dope. If you made this part tomorrow - you'd be siked.... S/k/f indies - switch feebs down handrails.... how real is his switch tre?
Unfortunately all 411 parts seem to be so bad they take away from the skating. I apologize & will try to use them only when the part I really wanted is unavailable. But for now - Enjoy:
i love his spot killing too... one night, one spot - done deal. that's fucking business right there.
