Pier Park Deep End Star.

Pier Park Star

I don’t know what this kids name is (Now I do. It’s Willis.) or where he is from. He split before I remembered to ask him. I do know that he was tearing it up. He’s supposed to email me so I can send him some pictures. More after the jump

I took a few others today too, and spoke to some whose names (Brett, Matt, Jeneene, Chad) I did get. I’ll post them tomorrow. Until then, does anyone know this kid’s name? (Yes. It’s Willis Kimbel. See the comments.)

  5. Check out

    You have to scroll down. There’s a link to one of the boards.

    “Bad Co. Curt Kimbel — Bad Co. was a short-lived manufacturer who signed up a ton of big names right before the bottom fell out of the skate market in 1980-81. Some might remember their Skateboarder ads featuring pros dressed up like 1930s gangsters, posing in smoke filled rooms. Curt Kimbel was probably the biggest name to line up with Bad Co., having won a number of slalom competitions and downhill races. He was also a damn good pool skater. This Bad Co. Kimbel model features a classic pig shape, with a glossy black glassed top and bottom, and nicely executed wheel wells. These are REALLY REALLY rare boards, and especially in NOS condition! REALLY, have you seen one?”

    Also, there’s this:

    Will is the real deal, a born to skate kid who skates anything with a smile on his face. His dad was one of the original pool and pipe skaters.
