Gonz came in to ET Surf when I was working and set that board up. It was the first time he was riding no risers. That is why his bolts are so long. He didn’t want to go straight truck to board so he used some ET shop stickers under the trucks. You can kinda see a round sticker sticking out on the sides

So he wasn’t saying Gonz invented riding without risers :smiley:

I was always lead to believe the Alva boys started the no risers/no hardware trend.

Thanks for the book feedback :+1:

Received an Amazon voucher from work so might pick that up along with the Spike Jonze Beasties one.

Cool, thanks for that. I don’t have Instagram so if I hit a link I can see the photo/video but can’t read the comments.

@Mike : I can’t recommend enough Pete Thompson’s book, ‘93 Til.

Yep, it’s really good. I picked ‘93 Til up once it became more widely available. I’d given up getting it last year!
