457: The Christmas list is growing! Dan Wilkes guest model from CockFight Skates

Pete Furnee tipped me off to these Texans at CockFight and their boards. We (meaning my teen years skate friends) have always been a fan of Dan Wilkes for all the obvious reasons and it seems we claimed him as an east coaster via his friendship with Tom.

I never owned a Wilkes board but I always remembered that dinosaur doing an egg plant over a channel.

Hmmm? I know the first two tricks are Eggplants what the Hellio are those Dinosaurs doing on the third board

Eggplants being one of the few consistent tricks in my repertoire and a love of dinosaurs…I guess I was predisposed to wanting one. It looks like they have revived the motif at CF (your name is gonna get THOS all sorts of new spam…he he) with this guest Modello.

Dan has been a very early supporter of THOS from way back so if you need a deck? Hell get this one!

So the Christmas list grows:(Maybe I can get this list to 12 before Xmas, Im gonna start doing this every year)

-Tony Hawk RIDE (check out the contest!!)

-The House of Steam Tee Shirt…LOL

-ONE CHOICE (Rob Mertz) Vinyl/with Digital Download

-CF Dan Wilkes Guest Model

-Anything from DeathMarch Skates

-Sublime Wheels on a Miramar Longboard

-A photo of Neil Blender skating The Animal Chin Ramp (More of a Xmas Wish)

Thanks to Pete Furnee for the look at this killer Skate Co. Looks like he has dialed in on Egg Plants (again) Wilkes would be proud!. The new phenomenon in vert skating is hearing from people talk about getting old tricks back!….We cant all be Bernie! or can we?:
