Back On the Come Up Post at Skatepark of Tampa

Back On the Come Up

Skateboarding has had its share of great comebacks and now I think we're on the verge of another great one: Larry Perkins. He did anything it took to come up, including calling everyone in the industry. Larry was different, though. He recorded his calls. Take this classic call to 411 where Larry's trying to get a filmer (Collin Kennedy?) to meet him at the Long Beach ledges. After the filmer explains that they knobbed the ledges, he doesn't really know how to take Larry's reply of, "I got tricks ova da bumps, baby! Kickflip krooks over da bump..." You can find more classic calls on Larry Perkins' Profile. Anyway, word on the streets is that Larry Perkins is at The Moat Show. If you remember his Big Brother interview from the 90's, no one knows what he looks like. I'm still trying to figure out if that was really Larry Perkins on that Tampa Am registration fiasco. Keep an eye out for Larry on the comeback and watch your phone for a call. This one just landed in my inbox where he called Surf Expo attempting to get into the contest they're having this weekend:
