My favorite skate archive is by Chris Eggers, Skateboarding4life out of Germany. I have been following it since it began about a year ago…and no worries he has English subtitles. Wanna know what it would have been like to grow up in Europe riding vert? This is the place. Chris is in his early 40’s and was on the scene throughout Europe, Great Britain and Sweden during the 80’s. The Bones Brigade and others had been throughout Europe in the mid eighties during those pre-Mctwist  ‘Vintage Days’ of vert skating.  Chris and his crew were there and took pics. Here are some of Chris’s gems:

Lance Mountain

Mike “Pre Mc-Twist” McGill

Taby Sweden, Summer Camp 1984

Psssssst Stevie Cab has still got these (A must CLICK)

I also dig the similarities…Chris like’s Indy Airs, he skated the Pipeline, he took time out from skating to take pictures and he feels the same way about Claus Grabke that we do about Tom Groholski. So check out Skateboarding4life and say hi to Chris and all our German Dopplegangers. Hopefully I can swing by Germany for a Jump Ramp Barbecue in the near future.

Great stuff Chris!
