i was in the nationwide championships at skate city and remember darren bonner competing too - he was known as the first uk skate punk and skated really well.
re the fresh air decks - those were reissued a year or so ago

I thought Richard Heslop (Logos) was the "first skate punk"?
Mind you, it was 1977, we were ALL punks back then

I wonder was Mr Benjy a bit surprised when he opened his box of new Benjy Boots all the way from America,
He certainly didn't get the "Double Radius" wheels he was expecting. These at flat on both sides


Thats the first time Ive noticed that the description and illistration match but the actual  wheels don't.

Tony Re "The Benjy stickers went on the later all ply decks, not the ones with the in-lay tops."
I believe the decks that I refer to as having bidirectional ply or in-lay tops as you've called them did come with stickers
just like in the "Put your boots on ad".
I thought they only said the riders sir names in an Alva style ie
Henderson or Sablosky but notice in that ad thed deck has
"Jeremy Henderson" in an Alva style .
These decks are JH 29 x 8 JS30 X 8.5 according to the other ad
I could be wrong and often am though I'm hoping someone will post a photo either way.
The later 9.5 -10.3/4 decks did have the stickers that Anstee has for sale

                       
re the fresh air decks - those were reissued a year or so ago

I saw Sean Goff had them for sale at one time I was hoping to get one but never got round to it.
what about a few photos from you!!!.......Maybe fireball shaped :-)

The second Benjy wheel the Superboot did have radius edges. Don't seem those very often.

The Henderson deck (like the artists impression in the ad) had die cut grip tape with a Skull & Bones on it, no stipped/inlayed top.

I've owned Superboots over the years used greeen ones like your flat backs and nos  in orange.
(photos at Mad-Rats site)
If  I could have only one set of  wheels in my collection a full set of nos superboots would be my choice.
Does anyone know what colours they came in ?

Thanks for the info on the Henderson, Because its gripped and  I'd only seen photos,
I did not realise that it was not in laid on top like the Sablosky.

I don't think I porgressed much past saying "yeah" or "Rad",
But was I pretty quick to shout "Snake" if some one took my turn in what passed for a bowl where I grew up.

I was hoping some of you yanks might help us out and post a few picks of all the ARROW decks over there or if anyone had a spare Powerflex Mark Baker

Yes, my fault, should have read before posting. There are short videos of Sinclair, Sablosky, Henderson on Youtube.


Kruza 70mm wheels. Terrible things; I had 4 but 2 just crumbled away. These are on Ebay at the moment, not me selling.
