What is your favorite memory in skateboarding from the 70’s and early 80’s?
Setting the first downhill speed record at Signal Hill (Hill St.) in Long Beach, Ca 1975 and then people wanting to race at any hill we showed up on. It was a Great time!

What is your favorite memory in skateboarding?

Blowing everyone’s doors off in La Costa back in the late 70’s. Everyone in San Diego wanted to race. We/I would show up and it was like everyone had this attitude all of a sudden. I would start a run and everyone or anyone that thought they could downhill would go for it. I passed so many people or people that could not catch me it was funny. Ty Page could not figure out why I could go so fast nor could any of the Logans, but they all tried to catch me and I just happen to be on my game for a very long time. It was good times and I was lucky back then. They were very good years and I learned a lot from all those people.

What are you doing now?
I live with my wife of 26 years , two dogs and two cats in Salt Lake City, Utah. In the Winter I was teaching 4 to 11 year olds how to ski and snowboard. In the Spring/ Summer and Fall we camp, golf, fish, travel to different places around the world looking for good surf. I have a full time Quality Assurance position with a well known company (Mrs. Fields Cookies) and that’s how I make our fun money. Go skateboarding with Russ Howell on the weekends and see if there are any young adults out there racing that I can catch up.

Kryptonics Wheels Chooses Legendary Skateboarder David Hackett as Brand Ambassador

November 8th, 2013

Legendary skateboarder David Hackett has been chosen by Dusters California
as the first Brand Ambassador for Kryptonics Star Trac Wheels. Hackett is
recognized as one of skateboarding’s greatest all-around skateboarders. He
is best known for his pool riding, and for originating his patented “Hackett
Slash” maneuver. In 2003 he was chosen by Juice magazine as one of the 50
Most Influential Skateboarders in the World. Hackett also excels in ditch
riding, slalom racing, downhill racing and now at over fifty years of age
is still skateboarding at a world class level.

Hackett first rode Kryptonics Star Trac wheels in the mid-1970s, having been
attracted to the wheels for their ability to handle the various terrains and
disciplines he rode.

When asked how he feels about being named the first Kryptonics Wheels Brand Ambassador, Hackett commented, “I’m SO Stoked to be chosen as Kryptonics Wheels first brand Ambassador! I feel like Johnny Appleseed- spreading goodness throughout the land!”

In addition to promoting Kryptonics Star Trac Wheels at skateboarding events
and through social media, Hackett is featured in a series of videos about the rebirth of Kryptonics Star Trac wheels.
