I was almost certain I had posted this before but a quick search revealed that I haven’t. This is from 2005, a year after I moved to NYC and at the time, I was riding a clunker around. The Gonz proves that even clunkers can get rad with this cruiser wallride. Luckily for us, Shawn Mortensen was there to catch the action. Every time I see Mark Gonzales on the street, I wanna stop him and tell him what an inspiration he’s been to me, but I know he probably gets that all the time.

Gonz, if you read this, I just want you to know that you’ve inspired us all to do inappropriate things on our bikes!

    One Amazing picture. Growing up skateboarding, I always looked up to the Gonz. Such an amazing and unique individual!

    I watched Gummo the other day, hadnt watched it in awhile. His acting in there is classic Gonz.
