The Style Merchants

Checkout Jay's right hand and his head relative to his knees...a zen master.

Tony flowing his relaxed vibe pre pool era. Check out his stance, the lazy but tuned-in left hand and the subtle "s" in his body. Pure flow, Pure style.

Dave Hackett, ripping a frontside grind. I street skated with him (and Steve Olson) in Ohio back in the day. He skated with a powerful energy that did not come from punk rock entirely. His surf style roots were very apparent whenever he would attain speed. Like Jay and Tony he had the flow in buckets but he also had a violent side to his riding that made him a touch more modern. His right hand says it all...the bandanna doesn't hurt it all either.
God bless the Style Merchants.
