Team Steam member Chris “Weep” Blank doing what he does best (stylin) at the ditch in 1986.
This photograph was taken by Ben Cornish and developed at our High School’s dark room. The “Ditch” was located in New Jersey along the newly constructed route 78. It was tricked out with metal coping and extended down hill (steeply) for at least 100 yards. Needless to say Weep ruled it like no other.
This photograph has hung in my bedroom, my dorm room, and my apartment since the day it was given to me by Ben. I truly believe it is one of the greatest skate photo’s ever taken. Nice one Ben!
