Wow! That really is crazy to see. I’m not really sure how old I was in this picture. I do remember entering the contest in the younger division then everyone I was with so maybe I was 13 years old? The ramp was made out of what seemed like fiberglass that sounded really hollow but road solid at the same time. I don’t even think I dropped in on the ramp so when I started a line had to run up the ramp, fakie once or twice, and then start my run. At the time I did all my airs just below or @ the top of the ramp, and I think was doing some Inverts about mid transition. I wound up taking 2nd and won a Lance Mountain deck which I saved for a while, but eventually road and shred up.

Can never get enough pics of the old days!
