Yeah, the 90’s were hard for vert skaters

welches

Yes, well, Tony Hawk did spandex demos in the parking lot of Six Flags, but now he has a whole ride named after him. What about the lessor known skaters. I can’t remember how I found this, but its both hard to watch and very funny. It’s a demo sponsored by Welches Grape soda, complete with BMX, a guy dressed like Dick Tracy, and a 90’s soundtrack… It takes two!

(Update: Looks like the audio track has been removed due to copyright infringement.)

  1. Six Flags is still doing vert demos. Matt Moffett is doing it this summer at the Six Flags in Santa Clara, CA and getting paid rather well to boot.

    That is from the old Wild Ones tours that went around to shitty state fairs… They were out of Canada..Horrible ramp. I did a few, Tom Boyle, Jay Steonson and others all took part in some of those lame ass events….

    • I remember Jay Stevenson, I think. (Tall, dark hair?) What’s he up to now?

    Man I hated that ramp. I remember doing shows around Ontario at county fairs on that thing. Some semi trailer and we had to help set up and take down. That Sixk Tracy show was silly. But we would get $100/day which was a lot of money back then. That was 1994. Good times.
