Another fun episode from Jeff Grosso with his Loveletters To Skateboarding. Now this is one good episode for the skaters who have been around for a while as we’ll remember actually using some of these gimmicks. Remember the Lapper?, Rails, Rector RIOT Gloves, NoseBones etc? Jeff he said he started skating when he was a kid when he saw a board with 4 different colored wheels. In this episode they go down the list of some of the coolest, goofiest and weirdest gimmicks to come along in the last 40 years….
Yeah, I used rails, lappers and nosebones and believe it, even those terrible gloves which stank after one session!
