Maybe Bernie can confirm that this is indeed Dan Brown (I for one hope so because it will mean adding about the 185th! skater to our all important archive) Also if you are on the deck in this picture send me an email!!


I love all the stuff my brother Ken has sent you.  I haven’t seen this stuff in years so its cool seeing it on the site.  I can ID the following people on the deck:

Far left, brown sweat shirt, white helmet              John Aires  (from PA/MD ?)

On the extension (left to right)                            Jeff Jones (in Variflex gear)
                                                                       Jim “Outlaw” Murphy
                                                                       Steve Herring

Steve Deitz

PS  The skater is definately Dan Brown chucking either an invert or one of his extended layback airs

    and (from right to left) Steve Herring, Murph, Jeff Jones, Rodney Smith, Guy from Staten Island who’s name I can’t remember and I don’t know.

    I think that might be Chuck on the platform, not Rodney. He was definitely there. I could be totally wrong.

    Dont think it is Chuck I just viewed another picture from the day of Chuck skating and he was wearing a red helmet, dark shirt and shorts.

    Back in the day 12ft wide was such a luxury. Looks so tiny today will the deck filled up! Great footage.

    I’d trouble viewing your web page on my mobile cell phone browser. Do you know if your website can certainly support mobile browsing? I will save this page later to determine on my laptop computer at home. I really hope you will update this blog more frequently.
