The “My War” video above and these accompanying words are too good not to share. Thrasher Magazine nails an important piece of skateboarding’s backstory with this: “There are a handful of tricks in the history of street skating that were absolute game changers and helped push us to where we are today. Bachinsky’s El Toro kickflip in 2006 was one of them.”
Ishod Wair, Cory Kennedy, Mike Carroll, Guy Mariano, Tyler Bledsoe, Rick Howard, Lucas Puig & Brian Anderson hit the mini ramp in this clip for the Fourstar Spring line.
It’s often been said that without a past, you have no future and we couldn’t agree more in the world of skateboarding and towards the pioneers, legends and those that have spent their lives pushing its progression. That said, ballots went out to nearly 400 qualified representatives from all eras of skateboarding history to vote for their choice for the Class of 2015 Hall of Fame inductions. After a week of vote collection, here are the results.
