    I saw him roll of a 12 foot deck at the Dayton Hara Arena contest back in 1988 it was totally insane. I'm from Ohio, so I have seen Danforth at many events. He definitely has a style all his own.

    I skated with Bill sometime in the late eighties at the D.O’s in Cincinnati. The guy ******* ruled. I saw him roll off a ten foot deck onto the ground at a demo sometime in the early nineties. Super cool guy to skate with.
