I contacted Surflne and they're going to try to hook me up with a copy of the Phil Edwards Makaha photo to hang with the PRISTINE board I bought from the guy in Australia... Thanks again for the link to this cool article.

I am SURPRISED that after all the debate Alva still manages to get credit for the FIRST AIR out of a pool     I was Talking to George and he said that Tony actually told him that he agrees George did the first AIRIAL

"I am SURPRISED that after all the debate Alva still manages to get credit for the FIRST AIR out of a pool "  Yea Me to...

I was looking through this book with Dale Smith last week...


& 1st thing We were noticing is it seems to bee mixed up,   I would like to see a time line with dates when things like Air's happened, trucks & wheels, when the boards came out & photo's of there boards in the riders section.....

Yep, that's what I thought as well. It's a bit unstructured. Interviews, chapters, topics, persons, pics, all in an odd and wild mix. Strange choice of boards. And a lot's missing IMO. Nonetheless an interesting and informative book and well worth the money...

Yea that's what Dale said,  also not sure how much research Ben did or if He just relied on what people told Him then put it together?  I remember Ben saying He could do a book on just the 70's DT cuz so much happened ?

A friend said "I'm getting good at self promotion" when He saw this & I told Him they come to Me & the reason I get involved is I don't want some Lame Ass like stacy talking for Me when He wasn't there!

A true historical timeline would be nearly impossible to establish. I've heard all sorts of conflicting opinions about "North" vs "South" on the west coast. It all comes down to who got the recognition and magazine coverage. It still amazes me that Allen Gelfand got the credit for the "Ollie." Being from the east coast....

I think that is is very cool that you Wes, not only get the recognition by the skate community, but also by the ART community for your origination of skateboard graphics. Damn shame you didn't patent the idea!!  You'd be back in a castle in Ireland and we would know you as Lord Wesley!

Well as best a historical timeline as possible,  Ya would need to have photo's to back it up or if Ya knew the date the board wheels & trucks came out it may help?   There's tons of photos Not in the Mags cuz there Not good photo's but if Ya started it off when Wheels, Trucks were made that would be the timeline & many of the photo's would just then fall into it, Surf & Skate Movies were months behind but take that into account also... 

Yea who would have ever thought & I'm working on that
castle in Ireland...   I got a little here until then communities pay better?
