I had a lot of fun designing the Lance Mountain @lancemountain signature truck for Indy! It took a few try's to get it right. This little guy didn't make the cut! Hahaha! His little skate crew growing up in the late 70's in Alhambra, was called Mouse Town! Lance is 100% Skate Rat to the bone! @lucero_rip #luceroart @independenttrucks
Super Stoked that I got to do the Art on the New Lance @lancemountain Indy @independenttrucks This photo was shot by @rhino in my art Cave, and is part of a two page Indy Ad! I've been skating with Lance since 1980! He blows my mind every time! Thanx for always being Awesome Lance, much Love to you! @lucero_rip #luceroart
Kicked out of the Park! 1981, Me and Richard Armijo on the Outside Looking in. @nblender shot this photo of us from inside the confines of the Colorfully Tiled Skate City skatepark in Whittier California. We would skate the curbs and sidewalk on the outside and just try to make everyone laugh at us! Gerry Hurtado got us paroled for more action! We love you @skatemastertate this photo was for Neil's high school photography class. Distortion assignment, period 5. #newwaveaction
In 1981, I was kicked out of my local Skate Park! Banned for life for being obnoxious and terrorizing. We took to the vacant parking lot and thrashed the curbs all day and night! Tiles and coping is what we wanted, not rules! During that time, Gerry Hurtado was hired on to manage the park and build a new team. We weren't aloud in or near the park but Gerry somehow pulled all the strings to not only get us back in the park but we were on the team too! I never had to pay again! It felt like forever that we couldn't skate! That first night back I learned backside Ally Oop Ollies in the clover! One of the best days of my life! Gerry was one of the first people to believe in me. My journey would have been much different without him. Always laughing and always loving! That's Gerrys Way! Thank you Ger, I Love You...
