reckless dreams of youth

Tony Alva at Soul Bowl- San Diego 1976 image: Bolster

Hubris. Another way of life. Drugs. Wanton sex. Young people far too old. It was a strange time. The world came marching up and cast a chest of diamonds and rubies at their feet. Wealth. Acclaim. The photographers would come to a pool with TA, Jayboy or one of the heavies. Riding would stop. The skate session stalled… because school was the only thing now in session. When you are a young man and the world falls on its feet in front of you… it must be difficult. Who can escape what he desires? Reckless dreams. Fulfilled. Thanks to Warren Bolster for the image. R.I.P. Warren. Skate- Ozzie
