All the skaters from the late 70’s / early 80’s are either turning 50 soon or have turned 50. If you really think about it – it is really amazing that these guys can skate on this level at age 50. Unreal. Super inspiring. A whole generation that was raised on concrete skateparks (like Skate City in Torrance) was super hyped when concrete parks started being built again in the early 2000’s.

“EL GATO” Eddie Elguera was an incredibly innovative vertical skater from the early 80’s. He pioneered tricks like the frontside rock n roll that were just mind boggling at the time. In the time just before Tony Hawk, Christian Hosoi, Steve Caballero and others of their ilk started to dominate, it was guys like “El Gato” and Duane Peters who were ruling the vertical game with innovation.” – Glen E.
