WELCOME TO MERTZWORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! **************************
Well, it's been a couple of years since I started putting this thing together and it's been a lot of fun. I've gotten tons of email with "Where's the (insert skatespot here) page? and all I can say is that I have barely scratched the surface of my photo album collection. I'm slowly but surely adding more all the time. Keep checking back and I'm sure you'll see what you're lookin for one of these days...keep skating......Rob Mertz

They got together the original Bones Brigade crew together to present the skater of the year award to Eric Koston. It was an epic event. I met SLAYER!!!!!!!!!!! From L to R, Cab, Hawk, Stacy Peralta, Mike McGill, Lance Mountain and Tommy Guerrero.
