My name is Tyler. I'm 35, and a Santa Cruz native.

I grew up surfing near Pleasure Point, and skating 90s skateboards at places like Derby park and Monterey Sk8 Station, and my own backyard mini-ramp.... but eventually grew a passion for the 70s and 80s boards and history as that is what ultimately paved the way for my generation. I now have grown up a bit, have a couple small kids, and focus my spare time collecting and preserving the history of skateboarding. I still skate a bit, play golf, snowboard, and hang with family and friends.

I'm pretty new to collecting, and have a small collection, maybe 20 - 25 boards that are displayed proudly. Being a Santa Cruz native I tend to collect mostly SC and SMA boards, but have some other rare gems that I can't seem to pry off my wall. I've bought, sold, and traded boards... all in the effort to improve my collection.

I've skated with some legends like Jason Jessee (who I used to buy Consolidated skateboards from), Caballero (who's ramp was a few doors down from my old house), Ron Whaley (next door neighbor), and a few other locals.

I hope to join in the conversation here, and add some interesting topics -- like the one I recently started about deciphering re-issues from OG's! 

Looking forward to chatting and sharing.

Tyler

Welcome from Just north of you, Santa Rosa.
Nice way to dive in!  And YES, you are a young buck here, but we could use some fresh blood!
