I know that there has been a hefty amount of Carroll exposure on this site lately, but the point of this post has less to do with his perfectly executed kickflip and more to do with the my own enthusiasm regarding Mike's choice of dress; a Stereo shirt and a Mad Circle hat. I don't think that too many pros would agree to be photographed while wearing another company's product nowadays. There was definitely a lot of pros back then who wore Menace shirts or skated Menace boards while not riding for Menace:
That's perfectly justified though, because Menace was just too fresh. And then there was that whole episode when Lavar got kicked off of Blind for a month or so for blatantly skating Girl boards throughout most of his 411 Profile. I'm pretty sure that the majority of the new career-minded skateboarders wouldn't get down like that.
