I'm happy to report that the Hall of Fame is back on track this year, after the debacle last year taking credibility away the entire institution, I honestly can say in my humble opinion everyone this year well deserves to be inducted!
from the Skateboarding Hall of Fame:
Enjoy a night of fun, friends and great memories as we honor the skateboarders, industry pioneers and icons that have left an indelible imprint on the history of skateboarding and our culture.I made photos of some of the inductees back in the 70's, here's some choice pic's:
