After the Old Skool Dayz event we sponsored back in September, we’re proud to also be supporting the Shriek! Shoreham! Halloween Skate Jam. There’ll be raffles, skating and a prize for best fancy dress, so if you’re in the south of England, get over to Shoreham’s bowl (just down the road from Brighton) on Saturday night!
With all of the noise being made over the summer about Tas Pappas and Tony Hawk’s battle for the 900 during the 1990s, we thought we’d revisit our very own Giorgio Zattoni’s personal struggles with the trick with this old video, uploaded in 2006, which talks about what led to him being the second person to make the 9.
And yes, we’re aware that the subtitles are barely legible – this video unfortunately predates the notion of “HD”. If you want to just see the documented attempts at the 9, skip to 5:31.
Spoiler alert: the landing on this is BEAUTIFUL, and probably still the best (non-Mega ramp) 900 ever done.
