The Chrome Ball Incident – Jef Hartsel

"Guys with AKs around my building. Waking up in the morning to find machetes under my car from gangsters hiding them there the night before. All that shit."

The latest interview from The Chrome Ball Incident is with Alva Posse alumni and subsequent early 90s World Industries pro Jef Hartsel. This is probably one of the best Chrome Ball interviews yet, with Hartsel talking Venice Beach sketchiness, skating with Tim Jackson, the Alva House, dealings with Rocco and much more. If you have even a glimmer of interest in street skateboarding’s roots, this one is a must read – click on the image to do so!

“You had to be careful whenever the house ran out of toilet paper. Your t-shirt would disappear, only to be found a few weeks later in the trash with somebody’s ass wipes on it.”
