Bob Biniak - Baldy

Bob Biniak - In the Mt. Baldy pipe. September 1976

Bob ‘The Bullet’ Biniak. He was a pioneer. Images of Biniak adorned the walls of skateboarders homes everywhere. He was one of the fastest skaters ever! Hence the name: The Bullet. Wes Humpston and I were hanging out one night. He showed me an old video clip from the Fireman pool. It was around 1976. Wes told me that Biniak was the first guy he ever saw do frontside forevers and work a pool frontside to frontside in any fashion…  the video footage was awesome. Bob Biniak is gone now but his legacy continues. Thanks to the Bolster archive for the image. Skate- Ozzie
