So sick style! This guy was smooth. Definitely miss seeing footage of him.When I was staying in Hollywood last year, apparently we were within a block or two from these ledges, but I couldn't find them. Fuck.
Gabe was dope! He sould have skated for Menace. His part in the first Chocolate video contained a trick by Fabian Alomar and a line by Joey Suriel. I have heard that he is now a Paramedic? wether this is true or not would have to be confirmed by someone 'in the know', anyone?I stopped seeing footage of him after Mouse/Penal code which was strange as he was one of the top dogs on Chocolate at the time.Would have loved to be skating Lockwood etc in that whole 94 - 96 circa, would have been ill.Imagine the demo's at lockwood one would have seen at that time!Gino, Guy, Keenan, Paulo, Fabian, Kareem etc, would have been nuts.
Underclass - It is weird that he faded away so fast after Mouse, as that was some of his best footage. I think that he might have messed up his knee or something? Not too sure. I have no clue what he does now, you should ask Crailtap.Watson - That spot is sick! Menace Tech heaven! There used to be a spot where I live that had those sidewalk bumps, we'd always call it "Menace Tech bumps".
love that ad.
Yeah I was so bummed that I didn't find it.You know I am gonna put this out here and get hated on for it:I never really was, nor am I still a huge Menace fan. Wasn't really feeling the full on "gangsta" image, and I thought most of the guys on the team were sub-par for skill and style.
most of the guys on the team were sub-par for skill and style.perhaps...but no one was psyched on Menace on account of their flawless, mindblowingly progressive skating.
Yeah, I just wasn't even too stoked on the company as a whole.Except for Pupecki. He's tight.
