I have a growing folder of Ken Salerno’s work….thought I would start with a two for one…Das Bruthas Charno: Glen and Rick at Cheapskates. I have a couple more shots that seem to all be from this session that I will put up soon enough. Along with a string of other Salerno gems.
A long overdue look at The Rumble in Romona, keep your eyes out for Steamboat and Tag (who earned the title of ‘Best over Channel’)
A christ air from Hosoi and a padless 540 from Ben Rayburn.

Ken Salerno sent me some cool pix I need to get in the archive. Here is one of our Hero Steamboat, “Team Steam” adorning his helmet and a big ole “S” on his board. Here we have him doing a large method air and banging his trucks on the metal roof beams. If you think its an accident here is another shot, apparently he was doing it all day.

Skater, artist, filmaker and inspiration for the name Team Steam Rick Steamboat Charnoski.
While I was in High school Steamboat sent me this gem (via US post) and I made a ton of stickers of it. I can see the original artwork framed and hanging here in The House of Steam World Headquarters as I type.
Be sure to buy Steamboats films!! They rule!
Coming soon!…. Rick’s SteamZine’s circa 1986
So here we have Series 1 (series 2 to be scanned and posted soon) of the Team Steam Trading cards. All of which were created on the old school printing press in our High School graphics arts department. No scans or xerox here just plain old Mr. Abella taught newspaper printing press/ dark room technology. I can still smell the ink and feel my bleary eyes after long hours of cutting class and hiding in the dark room. There are about 10 or so additional skaters in series 2 including The Barn itself and Team Steams House band The Raging Lamos. Look for another post with those as soon as I sort out a new British scanner.
