If you don’t already know…. now you do, when I was growing up in K-Town…. Christian Hosoi next to Bruce Lee was an idol of mine… best part about it, was he lived off Oxford and 6th St….. I grew up on Kingsley and Olympic, so were K-Town neighbors!
(for those who didn’t know I was an OG skater too)
above is from 1987….. I was running around chasing Hosoi like 1986… but been nice on a skateboard since 1984… now I can barely ride down the street on that shit! smh
and anytime Hosoi would come out and skate, I’d try to catch him right there on Wilshire and Oxford where OG cats used to get down! or the CNA building (now it’s the social security? or some shit) on 6th and La Fayette where the crazy wave like sculptures were like mini ramps….
anyways, If you ever saw Hosoi skate back then, it was like Jordan dunking, no joke…. the air he would get was insane!
my good friend Cesario Montano aka Block directed the illest documentary about Hosoi called “Rising Son” and I remember Block repping Venice hardbody….
anyways….. when Vans dropped the Hosoi SK8 Hi’s I had to cop…..
now that my own brand/fam supra dropped them a short while ago, I had to grab mine early…. just blogging them now!
I hate it when friends of mine bbm pics of shit like this to me…
FUCK YOU MARK…. you know I don’t send you pics of my 11″ penis or…. well actually, if you had bbm in 2004, I woulda def sent you daily pics of my garage at my crib which you’ve seen already hahahaha. still fuck you. btw, last nights game was lame! If this woulda been vs. Miami, then my feelings woulda been hurt!
