    My friend Jon used to ride this board when we were in high school over ten years ago.
    I forgot the company, but it’s Dan Rogers board.

    Cool! I got kind of confused at first, but then I realised the "extra eyes" were holes from the trucks. I hope he rode independent or tracker trucks.

    we used to ride independent trucks religiously.

    Could this board be made by a brand called "War Effort"? I dont know if that brand exists anymore, but anyway.

    Hehe, Indepent trucks are holy to many skateboarders from the beginning of 90’s and 80’s! But i wonder why they dont make kingpins a little bit stronger.. Thats the curse of Indys.. They broke after two weeks. And a new one costs 3-4€… :roll:

    Actually if I remember correctly, I think Bird House made that deck. I remember the first time I saw Dinosaur Jr. was at lollapoluza 1993 in Charlston WV. The night I got back, there was a skateboard catalogue with that deck in it. I wanted it so bad, but I had no money.

    it was an ‘ever-slick’ deck.
    It must have come out in 93, because that’s when Where You Been came out.
    Same year as lolla.

    I was at that Charles Town WV show too in 93.
    We were all there.

    There could be advertisements in this style: "now you can slide and grind your board as much as you want!!!"… :D

    Hey all I found some more interesting facts about this deck. Apparently it is a Dan Rogers deck done by Birdhouse. I asked guys on a website called Skull and Bones and they thought it was a Dan Rogers Deck. I visited The Art of Skateboarding website, they have the largest catalogue of decks from every era. Under Dan Rogers I did not find the Hitchhiker deck as I like to call it. But I did find that he also had a deck with the cover from Dinosaur on it. If you want to check it out here is the link

    I think the Hitchhiker deck is ultra rare and that’s why it’s not in the catologue. And by the way he does have a deck there by the War Effort company.

    Hmm… Quite interesting that this guy has 2 decks with dino graphics. He must be a big fan of Dinosaur Jr. I know the name, have heard it before, but I can’t remember any tricks or anything else by him. Does anyone know if he has parts in any skatevideos or something? Dan Rogers.
