In the words of Whitelines’ Chris Moran:

We ditched our neon outerwear, picked up the grunge baton, and invented the lumberjack-meets-MC Hammer look.

In fact the crossover went even further, skaters like John Cardiel (above) got involved in snowboarding, and Thrasher even threw a spot in on of their mags:

“Snow Boys: Snowboarding is big business and the tricks look a lot like skating a ramp. Witness Adam Merriman’s (left) stale flight at Mt. Hood summer camp. Alas, rich kids rule the resort and poor boys need not apply. Snowboarding is like skating mutated into some bizarre family camping trip. Back country and even back yard boarding should make a big comeback this winter”
