I remember the Churro place at North Star Mall, it was by where Banana Republic is now. The food court was very small.

How cool! Yeah I remember my parents taking me to Zulu's which was really like going to Austin since I lived on the Southside. Got my first "real" board there as well, a Mark Gonzalez. I remember a guy named Guy that worked there, super cool dude. I remember this is when skating had its second breath of life. When it was about "thrashin". This was when the Bone Brigade videos just came out.
I remember Team Bruce and a skate jam/contest they had there. I remember some kid ollieing over like 15 boards. And some other contest at a park in Universal City where some kid broke his arm, it was cool. I remember Rodney Mullens coming to town. How funny that he did all those tricks back then that people are just doing now. I was in 8th or 9th frade at the time and did the same thing, skated everywhere.
My friends and I threw a couple of Skate Jams back then at a parking lot behind the Bill Millers on Southcross and Pleasanton with no permission. We had mad ramps and a DJ and people selling food. Those were the days.
Man you are taking me back. The guy who ollied the 15 boards was my friend Wayne. He was the oldest and best skater in our crew. We use to always hang out and skate the Westlakes Mall area, one time at the Solo Serve parking lot he ollied 20 boards (most Ive ever seen him jump), but when he landed he kinda lost control. I remember a lot of the Solo Serve employees took their break to watch him do this. Remember Burce's giant yellow launch ramp? I do remember the Bones Brigade. I was the first one of my friends to buy the Animal Chin video and we watched it everyday and everynight all summer long. I had bought 5 Lance Mountain board in a row (he was my favorite) so all my friends would call me Lance. A friend of mine after high school went to college at St.Johns University in Queens, New York. I use to go visit him every summer to enjoy those good NY summers. My second time going there we had to make a stop to see a friend of his. His friend worked at a skate shop in NY called Surpreme. Well being in there took me back it was 1993 and I hadnt been a skater for a long while. Im in there for 15 min and I see some kids skating outside and whos with them....Lance Mountain. I freaked out, I had to say whats up. He was a real cool guy, I told him I bought like seven of his boards he said "Really......not Tony Hawks?!?!" Its also very cool to see how far skating has come and Tony Hawk too. I remember when was a teenage skater, now he the Michael Jordan of skating.

There was something by the Chess King. I don't remember what it was called. Could be the store in question.

I Bought my Parachute Pants at the Chess King.

Weren't we cool?

I think I still have them and sometimes pull them out of the deep, dark hole they are hidden in for a good laugh.
