in the early days of independent trucks founder fausto vitello would walk over to guys at skate competitions handing them a set of indy trucks with a hundred dollar bill rolled up in them. this is how skaters were originally invited onto the indy team. a few years later fausto went on to start thrasher magazine as a better way to promote independent trucks.
