briantunneyOn the right is RL Osborn from his December 1988 interview in Freestylin' Magazine. The original photo, shot by Windy Osborn, was taken at the now infamous and fairly deserted location dubbed 'The Spot' above the International Pier in Redondo Beach. I always wanted to recreate the original photo but I never got around to it. That would've also required hair extensions, so it's probably for the best. In the same interview, RL equated his new hairstyle with riding different types of setups: 'If your mind is open, like cutting your hair in a certain way, then your mind is open to anything.' That still baffles me.
- robinfenlonI'll shoot it next time you're back... Which is when?
- sekimpicDon't be baffled, open your mind!😜
- johnyullI've been searching for some RL / Chris Day tricks from that era. They had a lot of new ideas. I tried this combo recently I wasn't very successful
- kentpearsonbmxI stared at that pic so often and for so long when it came out. The bike... the style... that hand not on that grip... had a huge influence on me... El freaking Cid
