My buddy Chris was cleaning out his dads garage and found this Variflex John Warren deck from 1988. He offered it up to me in exchange for some vegan donuts. (As soon as I finish this semester dude, you’ll get your damn donuts)
At the peak of the brand they had pro’s like Lance Mountain and John Lucero with pro models and full page ads. How the mighty do fall. By the time I started skating Variflex was basically dead. In fact I’m pretty sure they sold rollerblades at Toys R US next to the Nash decks with plastic trucks.
