Gonz’s switch method did not compute at the time either. Should have won - best fit too (Natas was wearing a matching UCLA get up as well but I’m not sure he made the video, possibly due to a messed up ankle? This is from memory and it was a long time ago).
*honourable mention for Grosso’s spectacular run as well
Stoked to see this again, I was at it on the Sunday and it was amazing, or at least 14 year old me thought so. anyway. Other than renting Thrashin’ from the local Xtravision, It was the only skate video I had for about 2 months and I knew it off by heart.
As far as I remember, it was an RTE production and Ulster TV showed it a week or two later - the commentator, George Hamilton, was RTE’s go-to guy for pretty much everything from the Olympics to F1 to football and notorious for being a real life inspiration for Sports Desk with Alan Partridge.
