O.G. Status

This is me skating in 1987 when I was 12 years old. Some people have said that I started skating because of Pharrell, and the recent trend of black kids skating. No sir... I'm an O.G.
Santa Cruz "Salba" deck, Venture trucks and OJIIs is the set-up.

This is me winning The Christmas Ball King my senior year in highschool. I put my name on the ballot as a joke, then me and my boy Chollie Clark got dressed up and snuck into the Christmas Ball........... And I won! HAHAHAHAHA

The date was Dec. 11th, 1992... Peep the Gucci glasses. I was getting paper back in highschool from cutting hair.

Like I said before.... I'm an O.G.

Ahaaaaa @ you entering your name on the ballot as a joke, then winning. Nice shades :O). Cutting hair in HS: Cool :O).

*Smile*...this takes my mind back to MY days in high school...just to name a few:

Cold classes, cooking class (we only cook twice out the whole year: pizza & brownies lol,) Freestyle lunch hour, Class Smile , COLD classrooms, Mr. Chapman always being DRUNK, Yearbook (I LOST it, & I hate it!!!:(, & My English teacher Ms. BeBe, who'd bring a gun to school & would show the class, what SHE "called" borderline nasty education *shacks head*, that lady!

I mean all we did mostly, was look up definitions , then she would add a random TEST, from out of no where *shacks head* lol. Though these are to just name a few...ones of many lol.

Your OJ 2s reference reminded me of another set of popular wheels back then... Bullet 66s. Remember those monsters!? Before I could ever justify the purchase, the tiny wheel/tech era came to be so I never needed them.
