101: Chris Miller Backside Air at Jeff Roenning’s Hillcrest ramp NJ circa 1986 Jeff on deck


Chris Miller at Jeff Roennings Hillcrest ramp NJ 1986

Chris Miller was among the calvalcade of 80’s skate superstars that skated one of Jeff’s many ramps (I think he had 8 in all….really) I believe this was 1986 cause I showed up late getting a ride from my Mom (didnt drive till 87). I do remember sitting in Jeff’s house with Chris Miller, Dan Tag (living there at the time), Rocky Vertone, and others watching skate videos. jeff put in the Upland contest video and ironically it was cued up to Chris’s fatal looking giant backside square pool slam…. you could see Chris wingeing at the screen.

Jeff (on deck in the photo) sent me alot of great shots from this and other sessions I will make sure they get posted soon.

Chris if your out there send us a line!!

    I remember watching that with him also. If memory serves me right we all went street skating a pathmark that night.

    That sounds about right for us.
    Was that one of those nights were Weep would get the shopping carts going really fast by pushing them around in front of the car and let em hit the curb and watch em flip?

    No it was a little tamer that evening. Weep used to refer to that as doing “Set-up’s” whose origin goes back to C-Rock and those guys.

    There is one classic story I’ll send you re: All of us, someone’s sister and a mysterious package left in a mailbox.
