LOTS of reissues now, easier to name one that didnt get resiisued than the other way around. Lots of guys old enough now with disposable income wanting to recapture their youth :)
They have not yet reissued my fave yet though, Tony Hawk Claw, when they do I will get one in every color. As it is I have seven of the originals now but none that are NOS new condition.
I skated with METAL WHEELS! If you happened to SEE a pebble, you wiped out...
I'm not as old as Les, but my first board was a "Black Knight". It had clay wheels.
My first was a Grentec GT......green plastic with a kicktail. It had urethane wheels but loose ball bearings. I rode the wheels off that thing.
Heads up! The Danny Way documentary "Waiting for Lightning" is streaming on Netflix.
Oh, and my first deck was a Brand-X Weirdo.
