haha... more concave and about 4 inches wider LOL... those things were beasts... my 8" deck seems wide these days... nothing in comparison.

I had a few nash boards found one of my old ones on ebay in mint condition for a few hundred dollars... rail guards and all lol.

mark you should throw me the Hensley to hang on my office wall of relic skateboards :)

My Hensley is still together with Independent trucks and Santa Cruz Speedwheels. Got a Rob Roscopp Face at my parents somewhere. I think a Danny Way deck too. Natas deck too I think. Tracker Six Track Ultralights, and some more Speedwheels in their basement. My sister's old Lake Egg should be there somewhere too.

I still have two old natas decks one was the first one i ever did a kick-flip on it must be over 10'' wide i don't even know how it was possible .

''Hell concave'' was from ''Shackle me not'' old H-Street vid. I think it was one of the first ones they made then "Hokus Pokus'' You can watch them for free some where on the net. maybe google movies? I hadn't seen them for forever till a friend told me where to go last year to see watch them. Wish i still had the old vhs tapes though

Man, I forgot about that. I used to love the old Santa Cruz Streets of Fire/ Wheels of Fire vids. Powell Peralta stuff was good too. The Natas sequence with the 360 on the fire hydrant was my bible. All I wanted was to be as good as Natas. He drove a 16v Scirocco too.

Shackle me not was a classic... here is the clip with opening credits!

damn.... makes me old too.

i had Tony Hawk ramp deck, Mike McGill, Alva Mondo, Hosoi Rocket, and remember watching Per Welinder in Portland. the Per and Rodney sessions.... Natas...

Santa Cruz. Powell and Peralta. DogTown. Vision.

remember when a tri-tail first came out. and the original freestyle boards....

remember the first kick-nosed boards...

Tracker trucks and Independent.

the Bones Brigade was the shit.

my brother lives about a block and a half from Tony Hawk, in Carlsbad.... they race together @ this go-kart track every once in awhile.... its an indoor electric kart place... K-1 Speed.... pretty cool stuff.

i have some seriously ancient skate shit somewhere.... middle 80's type stuff.

way to make me feel my age, Nate. just way to go.

(graduated in 1988 LOL)
