    Such an unbelievably stylish skater. He floats effortlessly above the coping like an eagle ha ha. I remember Liberty first coming out. Proper skaters brand, unlike PP which was almost like a homogeneous corporate brand by then. SMA was the sh1t aswell. Where is Mr Smith these days?

    Another great episode. That smith stop at 2.29 (and again at the outro) looks fuckin hazardous. So sick.

    Mike Smith is one of my favorites. Incredibly stylish skating and sadly overlooked.

    Weird as my friend was attempting a smith grind on the box today I thought to myself I wonder who invented it. Now I know. It’s weird how YouTube suggests things

    I met Mike at the first El Gato Classic Legends meet. sat there at an outside table and listened to his daughter sing and play guitar at the Cantina after Johnny Rad & Eggplants. Probably the highlight of my un-career.

    You guys should do a love letter about Mike Vallely. He's got some amazing stories about good old skateboarding times.

    Awe, Grossosucks ! Showing the SoBay some love, Thank you! Some of that footage is Mike Smith's half pipe in his backyard in Hermosa Beach California. As a Grom we would congregate at Mike's and watch all the pros skate that ramp and then skated when they were done.
