Weaver - he's still around...maybe SD area...met him at the Jay Adams book signing event during the Sept 2006 ASR show.

I have a few versions of the skatepark rider (different sizes & wheel wells). They are some of my favorite riders when it comes to the mini decks. The rocker is sweet.

The rocker on the Hobie is awesome, much like the feel of the Powell street issue and early Haut/Lamaflex boards, the rocker has a feel that would be hard to achieve on a flat board, great turning circle.

Here's some stickers:




And some padding:

Slightly slow to get this posted, but how about this Hobie Gregg Weaver model skateboard? This was the first setup I bought as a young teen and rode it hard every day. This is not my original, but it is a board that I snagged from the bay a year ago.  The previous owner had started to strip it so I completely restored it, picked up a set of correct  Tracker half tracks and and so-so set of RR4s. I am looking for a better set of RR4s for it!Comments are welcome.

The topside just as Gregg Weaver did it.


The bottomside:


Sticker close-up.

Oh yes, this is post number 1, although I have lurked for 3+ years.

Meh, lurkers are cool - we have plenty here.
As long as he's not trying to sell the board, it's cool.
One hell of a setup at that. Nice job!

But while you're here, think about writing an intro.
You know...take you shoes off, stay for a while.

Sick looking deck.

My oldest friend found his Mike Weed rocker after years of it being missing presumed thrown out, in an outside cupboard at his parents house. It was still in great condition. Set up with Tracker Mids and Red 65mm 2nd Gen Kryptonics. I told him to look after it, but he let his son ride it in mud and all kinds of stuff. I think it still lives but I wish he would just look after it now. He sent me a phone picture

...the Park Rider w/Bennett Pro's & red Hobie wheels was my 1st 'real' skate, as opposed to the numerous plastic Proline's & Roller Derby skate i had skated...got it for my birthday(age? 8-9?), i LOVED it, i live on an awesome, graduated hill, that board taught me how to carve. I still get that same feeling I did when i picked it out from Sears skate rack when I see one today, especially one in good shape...also got set of cotton 'pads' & a yellow Norcon with it...man, i miss those 'not a care in the world but to get home from school & carve my hill with the neighborhood friends'.....(sigh)
