Not sure what year this was but it is for sure the early 80’s. This is from Kona’s archive, they have a couple more of these that I will link to and then we can move on. Check out this crazy run from Steve Caballero culminating in a switch invert. Crazy.
Classic Geoff shot of Buster Halterman’s Barn Ramp in PA. Not sure who is skating in the window. The place looks alot roomier and airier then the NJ Barn. Especially with those large barnyard shutters.
Dave Padulo Silver Apple skate Shop Contest Jersey Shore
Love that vid Chuck posted. I only met him once or twice but I always really liked him. Total Renaissance man. I still have a cassette tape of a bunch of McRad / McShred demos he did somewhere. I barely knew him and it just showed up in my mail box back in the day.
But what the post reminded me of was…did I ever send you the color picture of me at the Silver Apple Skate Contest? I found it when Jeff was in town and we were going through all the old photos. It was just as I remembered. That video of Chuck could have been the same freaking ramp too. I’ll attach it again just in case. Love the color in it..the blue ramp, my orange helmet, and my black Tommy G Jersey Devil board which he flowed me for getting him some pool coping.
Oh and what happened to that Vision Black Tom Groholski Jersey Devil board?
Sanded down and painted on (DOH!)…take that Wall Street Journal!
Spit and Goo Issue 2 1986 By Ken and Steve Deitz NJ
WestWood Cycle Sponsored contest with Marc Gonzalez
This is well worth a read… classic 80’s skatezine from ken and Steve Deitz. All the usual suspects appear in The Barn section. It really makes me recall what was going on in our lives circa 1986. I must admit to having watched Mark Gonzales instead of the contest.
Thanks to Jeff Roenning for vaulting this gem all these years.
