Ballistic was No4 in The Underground Tapes video series from the 90′s and was significant for the fact alone it featured the first Ars and Backflip moves by Eppo. The advertisement below featured Ben Holland in the main pic performing his flip move that was Eppo’s main  inspiration for the Air Roll Spin. It was a time when things were changing in the sport and it was progressing in leaps and bounds. Photos Stroh ’93.
