Got a text from our buds over at Thrasher. Looks like they admit they were incorrect with who they thought was on the tombstone after all. So, I get a sushi lunch out of it and JP gets a brand new Habitat deck. I really like how they disabled the comments on their post admitting defeat. I like making a big deal out of nothing.
If you head over to the Thrasher website, you might notice that they are having a contest to win a Habitat deck. All you have to do is email them who the silloette on the tombstone is. I did this a few weeks ago because I know the answer. Unfortunately, I never got a response. So I took it upon myself to text the drunk guy that handles that website. He told me that my answer was incorrect. He told me that it is Edward Devera. I rebuttaled, saying that it is none other than William Nguyen, a photo from an old Transworld mag. He reassured me that Bryce Kanights , Phelpers and himself all agree that it is Edward (I guess that is all the proof they need to support a contest). I strongly disagree. I told the drunk guy that I would take him out to a sushi lunch if I am wrong. But I don’t think I am. So here is a call to arms. Someone please find the og photo of William in TWS and send it in to the contest and you can have the winnings. I just want them to be proven wrong.
William has the last part in this Santa Cruz video from 1992 (I think)…on a side note, the first part is Chet Thomas’s english muffins. I won 3 grand off him cus he didn’t know what song he skated to.
It looks like the geniuses over at enjoi HQ have finally man’d up to a well deserved and long overdue pro model for our boy, Senor Jose vasques-rodriguez-gutierez-gonzolas-Rojo! We here at the big TMA housing community would like to give Jose a heart felt congratulations for winning all those cont…uh…all those video parrrr…uh….for looking some damn steezy on a skateboard in a time when people seem to have forgotten what it is to look good while doing your thang.
