HOSOI SKATES WARM-UPS #6: All 80's All Day

ALL 80's ALL DAY VERT CONTEST PICS

Quiksilver threw another All 80's All Day Contest, this time it was vert contest. Keeping with the theme the ramp had a roll-in and PVC coping and was built closer to an 80's back yard ramp than the X-Games style ramps that are the norm. With Hosoi, Hawk, Cab, Sergie Ventura, Grosso and many more 80's orignals on the deck this event really was like stepping into a time warp.




What year is this again?


Stevie Cab broke out the suspenders


Not many can stall eggplants like Grosso

Sergie & Bucky battled it out during the High Air Contest
Bucky pulled out a 10' air on an 80's board
to beat out Sergie at a solid 9'.
