|I did skate for Benjy Boards and did advise them on the benjy boot and even skated the benjy boot wheel, in fact still have them on my street skates today. But back to the subject, Andy Peerless was the wharehouse order filler, box packer and he started skating as soon as the shipment of rollerskates showed at the warehouse. The only time I saw him skate was at Rolling Thunder skate park in London. I thought that it was cool because I had litteraly never seen another rollerskater doing what I was doing. that was back I believe in 1978 Andy now runs Fearless Ramps in England.
: Worth taking a look at this historical skateboard site. Lots of 70s & 80s stuff, especially UK based. There are scans of issue 2 of Skateline with reviews of rollerskates of the time - ACS and Benjy Boot. I vaguely remember from an old Skateboard! (UK mag) that Tim Altic had a hand in the design of the Benjy skate. Also an image of Andy Peerless from way back when...
