Lori Rigsby Ads

While i’m reminiscing, I thought I should post up these RAD adverts from 1990 featuring Lori.
The first one is for Airwalk Shoes and the second one is from the Independent Trucks Company for which both companies she was a team rider.

Stoked!

The Indy advert was actually a diss at another Truck company from the same era, ‘Tracker Trucks’ who had plastic baseplates, aimed at making the boards lighter…

Independent trucks were made out of the lack of good truck companies around at that time. Team rider, Rick Blackhart famously said of the other trucks, “One broke and One didn’t turn” (speaking of Bennett and Tracker trucks respectively) thus Indy was born!

They clearly stood the test of time with their aluminium baseplates as they are now one of the most widely skated trucks companies of all time…
