This Vid had a sick soundtrack but not as good as Ohio SkateOut !

Featured Skaters:
Neil Blender, Steve Caballero, Chris Cook, Sam Cunningham, Bill Danforth, Gary Scott Davis, Adrian Demain, Eric Dressen, Eddie "El Gato" Elguera, Mark Gonzales, Claus Grabke, John Grigley, Tommy Guerrero, Tony Hawk, Christian Hosoi, Bryce Kanights, Natas Kaupas, Jeff Kendall, Johnee Kop, John Lucero, Jesse Martinez, Mike McGill, Ken McGuire, Lance Mountain, Arron Murray, Monte Nolder, Corey O'Brien, Steve Rocco, Rob Roskopp, Kevin Staab, John Thomas, Jon Tryer, Mike Vallely, Per Welinder, Chris Baucom

So, here's the historic street contest Savannah Slamma... THE WHOLE VIDEO!!!
At the time I thought Vallely skated better as an amateut than when he went pro.
Gonz always amazed me, and now that  I go back and watch, I'm all like "damn, back then!?!?"
Now that I watch Guerrero I think "I don't remember him tic tac-ing with tight trucks."
Dressen is still fun to watch, but everyone else is just sorta, eh?
Except Cab, his clip in this is massive, the airs, wallrides are huge! Did you see that cesslide (sp?)
A lot of the rest are just doing the judge/crown pleaser tricks, and/or are not really that great or progressive.
