I bought this used copy of Freestylin' Magazine off of eBay featuring South Bay police officer Mark Kirunchyk doing the first no-handed fakie wallride in Hermosa, and the pages were all marked up with written comments on the photos. The previous owner hated Craig Grasso but approved of this photo and the spot, which I revisited in September of 2015 to shoot the photo on the right. This is still insane to this day. I don't think I've really seen anyone aside from Vinnie Sammon step up to it in the time since but I could be wrong.

  • francisdelapenaI remember finding this wallride by accident when I was wandering around down there. I never would've guessed people had been getting rad on it since the 80's, let alone throwing moves like this.
  • thebicyclesource@8obbydee Right now TBS exists in cyberspace, I've got some plans that include a new website to start with.
  • ridebmxNice one Brian. Will Taubin also dabbled with the no-handed fakie wall. I think Vinnie did the no-handed fakie on his pegs too @vinniecalzone ? -Z
  • eversfi3ld⭐️ cool!
  • kenpaulRode with Mark once in Calgary. Not sure if he grew up in Calgary or just spent a few years there @gallery4130 ?
  • gallery4130@kenpaul name does not ring a bell. Sorry!
  • greghigginsartI ate total shit at that spot, I remember that bring pretty gnarly at the time. Ended up having good session second day, but no hander fakie on that was burly biz...
  • iamdefinitelynotabirdCrazy how the potholes are still there.
  • vinniecalzoneI did it once at the banks with @jeffzphoto. It didn't come out good cause the no hand part is so much quicker on pegs..with the tires you can kind of ride up, stall out and extend it. It felt shitty and hurt my legs a bunch too.
  • vinniecalzoneThe clips in cuts.
