Bluegrass Aggression Session 1988

Louisville Kentucky Bluegrass Aggression Session - 88

There once was an NSA contest in Louisville Kentucky called the Bluegrass Aggression Session, and nobody came to watch it. Somehow they let me on floor to take pictures during the practices and prelims. There were other guys from organizations like Lapper Magazine, Stuf, and even a certain GBJ. There was a monster vert ramp and a street course as well. On the left we have Eddie Reategui, and on the right we have the same obstacle, different viewpoint. Skater unknown. Full frame and enlargements after the jump.

One day I’ll get around to making a gallery of these shots. Until then, click the pics to enlarge.

That’s a good amount of vert, at least 4 feet. What is N.S.A. you ask? Why, it was the National Skateboarding Association, run by Tony Hawk’s dad, Frank Hawk.

  1. Pretty sure the skater in the right pic is Natas.

  2. Hmmm. Could be. That’s a good guess. The giveaway is if I can recognize him in any of the other shots. I’ll take your word for now. Do those look like Thunders?

  4. Kilwag,

    was wondering if you remember the date of this. I am trying to figure out which contest came first, the Vision Pro Skate Escape, or this.
    Thank you,

  5. Sorry, I can’t help you there. If I had to guess I’d say the Skate Escape came second, but that’s not really based on anything other than a gut feeling.

    I was at that contest and there were so few people there that I had the run of the place. Got to skate the ramp and every piece of the course and hang with all of the pros (I was a “sponsored am” at the time). Great time. Wish I could remember more. Thanks for posting the pictures!

    • I remember that… In fact, Hawkeman, you signed my red mini and gave me your blue full-size that you skated there. I still have both. Thanks again.
