I was a little after your time (80s) when the Bones Brigade were riding high for Powell & Peralta.
I used to ride a really obscure deck that has become somewhat of a collector's item. It was the Mark Lake signature board called the "Walker Nightmare." It had the coolest looking graphic of a guy's head exploding while sleeping. Sadly, it also had the most phalic looking design ever.
I was quite the terror on that thing back in the 80s around West Chester, PA. Of course who would have thought that a skateboarding vandal from West Chester would amount to anything back then. Oh yeah, Bam Margera did and parlayed it into a nice career.
We need to get together again.
