mark_gonzales_skate_krooked

To celebrate Gonz’ birthday yesterday Krooked unleashed Mark Gonzales‘ part in the Krooked Kronichles video from 2006.

This has the lot. Longboard inverts, British park slashing, street goofing and a Spike Jonze cameo.

The man is timeless, ageless and still manages to keep us entertained after so many decades. Long live the one and only Gonz.

Classic Mark Gonzales footage fest

mark_gonzales_skateThere’s nobody else out there like the Gonz. He’s one of the nicest guys you will ever meet and one of the most creatively fun skateboarders who has left more than a legacy to every generation that picks up a deck.

This features footage from Kicked Out Of Everywhere by Real (1999), Reel To Reel by Dan Wolfe (2001), and How They Get There by Spike Jonze (1997) all glued together by Jason Jessee, who introduces three must watch Mark Gonzales video parts for Thrasher’s Classic’s feature.

Get the teas on for 15 minutes of skateboarding gold.
