During my 'field' trip to Screamin' Inc last week, owner/operator Chicken blew my mind by casually yanking this plank of skateboard history out from behind a of Hosoi's early Hammerhead prototypes from 1985. Chicken said it's a deck that Holmes used to defeat Bony Squawk during one of those infamous NSA Finals battles at Del Mar.

The other thing that was so shocking (besides laying the deck down next to a vintage issue of Thrasher featuring a McTwist sequence of Holmes on the very same board), was how completely flat the board was. Almost NO concave at all...combined with the fact if was the most thrashed out pro stick I have ever seen; check the razor tail and grip job.

Too sick.
