I never really knew much about Todd Anderson, but his brand of vert and street riding spoke volumes to me. He had a less is more stylistic approach to BMX, even down to his bike setup (which featured no back caliper brakes, a coaster brake and a front brake after he started riding for General.) And he knew how to tweak everything as far as possible, as is the case here, in the Riviera Village area of South Redondo. I actually stumbled onto this spot a few months ago, and didn't make the connection to the earlier photo of Anderson from the February 1987 issue of Freestylin' Magazine. And to this day, I've never seen anyone recreate this trick.
