Lenny Kirk

Last week Chris Nieratko wrote an article about a new photo book about Lenny Kirk by Dennis McGrath. check the link below from Vice Magazine.

http://www.vice.com/read/lennie-kirk-and-the-insane-side-of-skateboarding-381

Not much gets me as stoked as Lenny Kirk and Alien Workshop around this era. It brings back a great time in my life when I sucked at skating (oh… i still do but now I am older). Lenny’s innovation and raw craze throughout San Francisco really pushed the limits and his Timecode part could be my favorite skate part ever.

enjoy! Now I should buy the photo book and support Dennis and Lenny. I hope he gets the help he needs. Escape Hell.

I used to have a copy of Timecode but I let a friend borrow it and never got it back. dang it.
