Wally Inouye has always been one of my favorite skateboarders. From the earliest images that I saw of him in Skateboarder Magazine and Skateboard World Magazine, he defined style for many of us. He was always a standout at the Fruit Bowl, local parks and during the Hester Series. He is in town for the El Gato Classic and stopped by at Arto’s pool for a few grinds. The years seem to have been kind. He still has a ripping, fluid style and powerful presence.
Thank you Wally Inouye for the inspiration and thank you to Arto Saari for the images. Thank you to William Sharp for the Marina image. Big thanks to Eddie Elguera for standing up and organizing this Hester / Gold Cup tribute weekend. Skate- Ozzie
