MARK GONZALES

6 03 2012

Today I got to meet one of my childhood skating heroes. The Adidas skate team was in town headed by the one and only MARK GONZALES, I knew it was those once in a lifetime chances to get to see ‘The Gonz’, so I made my way to Riverside Skatepark to catch the demo the team was putting on.

Was a pretty big turnout and there were around 10 of them in the team, but the demo was a little lacklustre as only a handful of skaters were ripping. The one that ripped the hardest I reckon was Dennis Busenitz. He pretty much stole the show everytime he skated…except for when The Gonz come on.

At the end of the day, there was more goofing off than tricks from Gonz, but no one really cared as most were just stoked to see him in the flesh. He didn’t do anything mind-blowing, but whatever he did came with his signature style, flow and awkwardness. He might be pushing the years, but he’s still one cool cat!

Hit the jump for a few more action shots taken with my trusty IXUS120…

This guy fucking rips! Everyone loved him back in the day. His shit was large and clean but most of all, he had a super fresh style of skating.

But like some superstars, he went a little ‘wild’ and fell off the face of the planet. A few years have gone by and there has been the odd clip of Tom Penny on YouTube every now and then.

He looks a little worse for wear these days, but this latest edit shows that he still has it, albeit a little sketchier than we used to know. So awesome to see him back and killing it!

Thanks for the heads up ‘Can’t Skate’ Blog!
