Kryptonics made today Dennis Martinez day, and we thought the old school photos of him skating were too rad not to share. Dennis starred in the movie D.O.P.E, was the 1977 World Freestyle Champion and 1978 U.S. Champion. Today Dennis is a volunteer prison chaplain at Calipatria State Prison and a founder of Training Center, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center in Spring Valley, San Diego, California.
