Well if this pic dont beat all!
Rob Roskopp came to do some board signing at the shop and road the Barn as well. I think he had Steve Olsen along with him on this visit. I remember Steve (Olsen) signing my black n white checkered Olsen signature model and writing Skate or Die on my black jacket (I’ll getta pic up of that board I know I got it in storage)
I really dont know what else to say about this one….Cept NICE ONE! Roenning!
Well since Rob was cool back n the D I figured I would plug his current Venture.
SANTA CRUZ BIKES seems he designs some sick mountain bikes under the Santa Cruz name. Click the photo and read a great interview…..

Christian Hosoi 7 foot Back side air over Dave Hackett The Barn NJ 1985
The night Christian Hosoi and Dave Hackett came to the Barn.
On the back of this photo it reads “Hosoi and Hackett at the Barn ’85” “7 ft Air”. Over Hackett. I trust this is accurate. On the Deck from L to R is Me (Dennis Kane), a guy from NYC named Pepe (he was Peruvian), Tag(Dan Tag), Ben(Cornish), Murf(Jim), and Rocky Jr(Rocky Vertone). I bet the other Deck was full of the usual boys too. One thing about the Barn was, you never know who will show up. One day I went to work and I missed Chris Miller. Evan Feen (infamous Barfoot Snow Boarder) and Lee “Rats Skates” (OverKill drummer) were regulars. On this day it was Hosoi and Hackett. I think Tom(Groholski) brought them by. I think Steve Olson was with them and he hung around and we took him to the Ditch. NJ State Police showed up and chased us out. Olson looked too shady, I guess. Anyway, imagine looking out the window and seeing this crew. Then in mid session, my mom cames out and yells at them for not wearing head gear. She was the law!
Well there you have it true believers straight from the man himself. This was a weekday school night session. I remember talking to Rock and Ben the next day (I was a High School Freshman) and I refused to believe what they told me. I was gutted I missed it.
The morning after this session at the Barn Hosoi and Hackett headed to NYC to film with The Bones Brigade. (The Barn was a 30 minute speeders drive to Manhatten)
Tom skating his backyard ramp…and talkin bout the Barn.
