Steve Picciolo. R.I.P.

Dave Hackett was strongly influenced by Steven Picciolo. Steven was a great pool skater who-unfortunately-hasn’t received his due respect. Few have really heard his name. I recall magazine images of Steve. I have an image from ‘Skateboard World’ -etched in my mind- of Steven doing a FS air out of a pool. He has his name written on the bottom of his board. You cant see his face really well…but its a sick picture that stands out in my mind. He was ripping! He has passed away now, but his influence persists. Dave Hackett shared this eulogy recently & I post it here out of respect for both of them. Remember those that came before us. Steven Picciolo. R.I.P. -Skate-Ozzie
