Last couple sessions of 2017 were all time!
Slashed curbs with the #fucc crew & two guys that were there at the very beginning...I first met “Big Jim” @big_jim_43 & “Tex” @mikelly69 in 1984 when we all rode for @shutnyc 🏙. They were a few years older and wiser, and they, along with @mussoinc @all_one_rodney_smith & #jeremyhenderson guided the @shutnyc #shutcrew with style, attitude, ripping skateboarding and just plain old street smarts. When the shut van came to town...Look Out! The Shut Crew was about to go marshal law on your town, your spots and your local park! Out came the boom box blaring KRS-1 & James Brown, and a misfit band of mutli ethnic ✊✊🏻✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿(unheard of at the time) Brothers from NYC, NJ, DC and PA. @williamseansheffey @mctkep @onefelix #billywaldman @derekrinaldi #cocosantiago @mercifulskate & many more. The crew just completely took over contests/sessions/scenes up and down the East Coast. Even though I was just one of the “little guys”, it was something really special to be a part of. And I owe a lot to all these guys that laid down the vibe, the style, the cool, the fashion, the music and just the plain old fashioned swagger. You can do the hardest tricks in the world, but if you ain’t got the attitude and the swagger to go with it, it don’t mean a damn thing! Sing it James! #SuperBad #ShutFam #ShutSkates #AceTrucks #LooseTrucksSaveLives #KnowYourRoots #EastCoast 👊🏾🗽🖤 || photo: @bunnies_and_kitties
