Throwback Saturdays

This is one of my all time favorite parts. I know it may seem I say that alot but certain video parts remind me of great times skating. I remember seeing this video part of Reese Forbes in Eastern Exposure. I was just blown away with the speed and power that East Coast skating had compared to the West Coast. Nowadays you can't really see the difference too much. But back in the 90's it was clearly evident. My friends and I would try and emulate this style and type of skating. This is the era I fondly remember of playing line skate. Basically a game of skate but doing multiple tricks. You can do flip tricks, manuals, ledge, whatever. Just as long as you did a line. Man I haven't seen anyone play that in a minute.
