I got my first board in 1993 for my 13th birthday, coincidentally the same year 411VM first came out. These videos were such a huge part of my life growing up and being that I lived in Orange County I was in the thick of all that was going on at the time, all those dudes, all those spots... I just remember being so stoked when that horn would play in the openers and me and my friends always pointing out our background props "oh, thats me right there next to the tree!"....some of the best times of my life.
Skateboarder Magazine is releasing all of the issues of 411 on their site starting with the first one and man, just watching it brought back so many memories, just heavy moments in life...making me "the person I am today" kind of moments. Everytime I see a video or here a song from somebodys part it takes me right back to where I was and what I was doing at the time and I'm thankful to have been able to experience and be apart of what I think was one of the rawest and realest times in skateboarding.
