Good stuff....



...Parks, Bowls, and Ramps are the hot shit right now. People go to the gap or rail. Jump. Get in car and continue on with their web vid. Skating's always changing. Street skating for the most part is dead. Wagoner always seems to capture some rad shit with rad dudes. I doubt if there was much forethought going into these sessions. There's some bender dudes in here. There's some Deck Specs dudes in here. Street skating through Atlanta, Ga....ever thought of it? Fuck it. Your am-xtreme contest is this weekend. Back to the park....

Atleast it'll be a good parking spot..

..for the lil 5 points party....

Woody Trend's doing another one of his events.

With all the knee pads, standing around, carves, kickturns, shit talking, "back in my days, we.." and "lil shit head kids...", this should be one hell of an event. As well as a slamming after party.

Pool sesh. Loud mouths. Beer swillin. Skating through the streets afterwards. Sounds sick. I'll be getting married in Vegas. Rip it up fags!

Santi!!!

...Santi probably has no idea what a jolly mambo is. He gets bummed at times that his frontside inverts over-rotates to fakie. Everyone else on the planet thinks it's the raddest shit since sliced bread!

...Santos. Jolly Mambo from shallow to deep. Neil Blender would be proud....

David Clark!!!

1st dude on. 1st dudes "ad". I asked Morico for some fotos of the dudes. Only one David flick. But with that dude, one's all you need. He's the epitome of the quote on the bottom. "it's not what you do, but how you do it". It's just a rock bounce. But it's the kinda style that makes you go, "huh, i wanna go bounce of some rocks too!"

Back in 1991, pressure flips were the trick of the year. Skaters tried 'em everywhere. Shit flippin and bouncing off the ground. I did one over the 3-way hip in Marietta when I skated around Atlanta for the first time. Funny I live 10 minutes from that spot, 20 years later. As you could tell in the style of the foto, the qoute I used for David hasn't always been the norm.

Ad idea. Babb. Gary Hart made it awesomer looking.

Bender Dudes!!! That Damn Stormy Pruett!

...It's just raw fuckin desire, motivation and power when Stormy skates. He'll sit there and joke and laugh all day, but when something clicks and he wants to do something a completely different person arises. I've been hanging with this dude for the last 14 years of my life and through listening and watching him do the skateboard...I've learned, among thousands of other things, that you can sit there for an hour and a half and watch someone get as close as they can only to bail or slam. But it's always in the eyes. You look at someone who's really going for it and watch their eyes. You'll know before they pop if they have it or not. He tuned me into that. And since then I've noticed that no one. No one has ever had gnarlier eyes while skating than Stormy. The epitome of a "Lifer". He lives and breathes skateboarding and has for over 25 years....My brother. My friend. The Drizzle....Stormy Pruett!











I made this....


...this is what i guess, i'm calling a "press release"? Some shops and people wanted more info about who was on and how we were going to "present" the company. I drew this up, freelance 3 different times, trying to get everyone's name on here in this space. not fun. left off a few. sorry dudes. We'll get ya on the next one....anyways. 1st ad/press release.......damn, if we only had some money to run it in the mags....

...Email bender-hardware@hotmail.com for some more info or to make orders!

New thank yous to Get Rad! Skateshop in Gainesville, GA and Stratosphere Skateboards for giving a shit...
