HAHAHA! That was the most 80's thing i've ever seen nearly fell off the sofa laughing! Jesus, the haircuts, the hightops, the elasticated cuffs on the jeans all mixed with baggy t shirts or jumpers in pastel colours! HAHA!

That takes me back. There was loads of that sort of stuff about at the time. I remember one all terrain board that had tracks instead of wheels.

I did have a pair of something similar can't remember the brand but it was a skate brand. Nowadays the only time i where pants like that is round the house "lounge pants" or as we call them "wanky pants". I'd love a pair of wanky 'vision' pants.

No way! I haven't seen that for so many years. I can't remember if it was the same footage but I'm sure it was the same board. Love the blog by the way sk8norcal.
