For whatever reason, I seem to be on a bit of a nostalgic skateboarding spree as of late. There are so many moments watching Natas now, that I remember trying to emulate as a kid. I endlessly skated the curb in front of my house based soley on the way Natas would ollie to pivot. I had two pairs of those Ellesse high tops. Even his style, the way that he made these crazy lines out of just cruising. The guy was one of the architects of street skating and the father of the now standard pro model shoe.
Have a look. Relive some of your own youth, when you used to land kickflips with one foot on, one foot off.
