....A good and longtime friend of the Atlanta scene moved back to Cincinnati some years ago. Gary Collins has always been the loudmouth, shit talking, ringleader of the midwest with a heart of gold and mass love for his friends. My first time meeting him I was 17 and these ledges Chris Head took us too weren't sliding so I asked if anyone had wax. Gary's immediate comeback was "Quit being a faggot and go faster." Pretty stunned. Pretty dead on. No bullshit. These days Gary's got a kid, bought a skateshop and has started Instrument Skateboards. We're all fans. Wished the shops were. Another under the radar sick company you can't find around here.....I miss the Midwest.
