466: Mike Vallely ollies over Google and Youtube


I am a bit of a geek  so this was cool to see a bit into the Google NYC office. Notice those razor scooters lined up at the door for people to use…they need to leave some skates as well. I would have preferred to see Mike ollie one of the computers, possibly a Colecovision ADAM.


391: The Best Skateboard Tricks Ever I, II & III

Jason Oliva

Well they are the best street skating tricks ever at least…man skating has come along way. Honestly if I could do anything from this video I wouldnt tell a single soul I was a skateboarder. I would look em in the eye and say I was an honest to goodness Dare F’ing Devil.

Gotta dig the G-n-R too.

Happy Easter

Five sheets of plywood and several cords of firewood? I believe skate architecture has evolved into  more economic designs than this but hey it was all uncharted territory back then…you had to skate what you could build. 


That’s me in freakin 1980 man!  London Calling, Freedom of Choice, Back In Black all just released into the world.  Hard to believe they were ever “new”.  Like us I guess. 


Checkout Matt today back in the saddle skating away with Dave and his Nephews up and down the East Coast.

    November 20, 2007 at 2:50 am I’m Sean’s brother Ben Miller. I’ve recently discovered this site. I appreciate the memories on this web site. Sean will always be missed by those who knew him. I live on with the attitude he displayed in his vert days challenging myself to a military career and battling terrorist. Team Steam and its members was definately a part of my growing up and made me what I am today. Rick Charno and TAG were awesome guys to shred with. To all old friends I can be reached at fastbenny@aol.com
