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. 

Nice one!!

So this looks to be around 91-92 The Raging Lamos played at the indoor park in Brick Township… Ill let dennis tell it..


I think that that was at the Brick NJ indoor skate park (Impact Zone) contest/Raging Lamos jam (c. ’91-’92). You know the one. Jim sent in a group shot. (However, I may be totally wrong). I am sporting an old skull bucket that one of the Charno Brothers gave me, which I still wear. That might be Tag’s hand hold the seat. If I was to guess, Rocky with his hand up in the back. He often did that. I do not remember Ian by name, but that could be him. Anytime someone asks me to hold a hair for then to do an invert on, I always seem to say “Sure!”
