Just got word today that my Japanese friend, Nisi has passed away after what I suspect to be complications from diabetes, I don’t know any details yet. Very sorry for the Japanese skate and surf communities’ loss. Nisi has many friends in the US too and was quite the character, artist, photographer and showed many a skater and suffer around Japan over the years. We will mis the Devil Man!

Sonny Miller (RIP) lays down a Bertlemann slide at the Avo Bowl in Fallbrook in the early 80s. Sonny was an early San Diego skateboarder and one of the early snowboarders. He was a great friend to many people all over the world.
