Tony Alva

“It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.” - Andre Gide

At one time, Tony Alva was one of the most loved and hated skateboarders on the planet. People loved his success, brash style and intense pool riding abilities. He pushed the frontier of a brave new world. Others hated him for virtually all the same reasons. However, he is still here and most of them are not. There are no pretenders to his throne. He is the real deal. Thanks to Bill Sharp for the image. Skate- Ozzie
