Have you ever seen one of these? The 1st Asymmetrical Rocker & Camber deck?

I just found an old Hooger Booger Blaster, I've heard it was dual camber?

But until I found this pic I wasn't exactly sure, now I've found a pic that shows they had Camber/Rocker/Camber way before anyone else.

On top of that it's Asymmetrical like a Park Pickle

Pretty cool, I'm definitely gonna have to try this thing out.

Nice find! I forgot all about these. Didn't realize they were dual camber and asym though.

That's the only logical thing I could think of too.

If every board company has a version of it now, what the hell happened?

Was Hooger Booger just too stupid of a name?

There's ways around patents and what not. History has a way of repeating itself with technology. I have a Rossi in my room from 87 that is rockered.

Well, I bought it last night. Turns out, it's brand new & has never been ridden.

It has the same profile as my Heritage.

Still think it had to be the name that killed them?

Some relevance. Tells you what happened to Hooger Booger, along with a few others. Cool stuff.
