I proudly rode for the legendary Alva skates from 2002 to 2004. I have all these photos left hanging around from that time.
The shit went sour when the stoners at the U.S. Alva warehouse couldn't supply England with the product.
It is a good thing that we parted company because my perceptions were shattered when I met Tony Alva soon after at the UK Soul Bowl He acted like a complete rockstar knob head with a huge EGO! hitting on 15 year old girls and telling anyone who would listen that he invented bowl riding!
