The year, 1978, a 12 year old kid from Pasadena, TX started skating in his driveway on a banana board with loose bearings. Jump to a few years later when he rolled in to Town & Country fiberglass skate park with his dad, who bought that kid his first real skateboard, a fiberflex with blue Kryptonics. Little did he know fiberglass pieces from that park would create the P-ramp and shape the P-Men into the grand icons they are. The P-ramp was where Ken Fillion, Johnny (Tex) Gibson, Troy Chasen, Todd Prince, along with Angry Andy honed their skills and developed their style. Andy says those guys were always better skaters than him and learned tricks easily, especially Tex. Struggling to learn tricks and trying to keep up PISSED HIM OFF because his expectations were very high - thus he earned his nickname, "Angry Andy", breaking boards and slinging curse words. Todd Prince was his main competition and inspiration as an amateur, though Andy always felt competition took the fun out of his favorite pastime.
At 51 years old, Angry is still doing inverts in the deepest parts of any park, still totally stoked on skating, and still says skating defines him. He now enjoys the open road as a truck driver, allowing him to skate at parks all over the United States. When you see him at your skate park, know that he is still likely to break his board and shout obscenities if he doesn't like his runs. Don't take it personally and buy him a beer.
