AWAKE: Venture Trucks Team Then & Now

Venture-Trucks-Made-In-USAAWAKE: The Venture Trucks yearbook. Can you name all of the pro skaters that have at one point in their career skated Ventures or even endorsed them as one of their many pros? Lately I have been intrigued with the heritage behind this brand as I have been reminiscing about my early days of religiously skating the V3, and Featherlights or Superlights or whatever they were called. In fact, I have been skating a set of the 5.25 WIDE & HI’s again for the past couple of weeks (with Bones bushings) and I forgot how responsive and light they are. I’m certainly not trying to sign my name to these trucks, but any truck that is Made In The USA in the Ermico Foundry and has a pedigree chart like Venture deserves some attention. Can you imagine if they still has this team? Wowzers. Special thanks to the ad archives at Skately.

eric-dressen_by_kelly-d-williams_WEBOccasionally I will have the opportunity to photograph someone that I consider a true icon. Not just a legend, but an individual whose presence has been etched so deep into the stone tablets of skate culture that they will unquestionably become a permanent fixture to the timeline of skateboarding. Eric Dressen is damned good.
