An integral part of the surfing experience is sliding concrete. From those first roller skate wheels nailed onto a piece of 4 x 2 and a ride down the driveway, Terry Fitzgerald has kept a weather eye on skateboarding.
Through the skate explosion of the ‘70’s and ‘80’s the same lines laid in Dogtown pools were morphed at Velzyland and Alley Rights. The Zephyr Boys, Jay, Alva, Stacey, CR were watching Bertlemen, Liddell and TF and vice versa, all carving very different lip lines. In the mid ‘80’s, Paul Burnett and his Dad designed, patented and built a vertical pin truck for the first Hot Buttered Skateboards. Over five years, Kye Fitz’s Raised by Wolves skate experience combined the art of HB’s rainbow surfboards with Canadian maple and new age technology producing the HB Streetfighter, Shooter and Longboard range of skateboards.
Now, those original trucks are back on a collection of short and long HB OZE Skateboards featuring the original artwork and Martyn Worthington classics. The original vertical pin truck has been re-cast and ready to ride for the ultimate surfing street experience.
