    Switch is from 97. It was really interesting because it started out as a free film via an ad in wbm, minus a small shipping fee. (crazy to think about now.) I spent a solid school year watching the shaun murray/dean lavelle section and eating waffles before school.

    Damn Gator used to go big!

    ^yes, Gator went O.F.F. And notice Weddington’s toeside front to backside 180 – a fruit loop, not a tootsie roll – big difference going end over end. Don’t see anyone do that anymore. With all the recent talk of Darin re-joining the tour next year, I think they should open up a Master’s division. A lol of those guys still rip – In some ways I’d be more interested to watch an exhibition by guys like Cobe, Parks, Reggs, etc that I would be the pro or jr mens division.

    Awesome! That double up shot of gator is what inspired me to be a hoochie glider.
