232: The scenic overlook Ditch today

Email from John Vandermey: 

here she is bro…still local, still underground, still ridden, loved, and respected

see attached pics.

also, here’s a thing that i wrote…it was published by Concrete Wave online a couple months back…http://www.concretewavemagazine.com/exclusives.php?id=4

 

Some 2006 pics of the scenic overlook ditch from John Vandermey. Read his submission to Concrete waves above it rules…I think the old school guy was named Ray Bolby(thats how it was pronounced I dont know about the spelling) He road an old school set up even by 1986 standards.

thanks John look for your mug in The FRIEND “O” STEAM category and keep the cool stuff flowing.

168: Shane Thomas and his Bird Bath Bowl…VA

Bird Bath jason oliva the house of steam pool

Hello Jason,

I was just checking out your House of Steam site and
saw a bunch of familiar faces that brought me back to
“the day.” Growing up in Dover, DE and picking up my
first real board back in 83′, I couldn’t help but
notice all the old east coast flavor you got going on
that site.

Being a East Coast skater, it’s great to see you
representing the right coast with everything and
everyone who has made us what we are today… the best
at having fun and building our own s#@t to skate. I
hang with the OBX crew a lot and friends with a ton of
folks from PA to NC.

Anyway, I wanted to shoot you a few shots of my
backyard in hopes that you can find the time to swing
through whenever you find yourself down in VA. I live
in Newport News and my “bowl” (dubbed the “Birdbath“)
was made with DIY skater love for anyone willing to
grind it. Enjoy the shots… come on down, drink a
few beers and get in some grinds. It’s made a name
for itself as a “Humbler” (as Murf put it in a
interview he did with my buddy Mark Corbett in a old
Juice mag) so, it will definity break you off if your
sleeping at the wheel. Being 34 and skating for over
24 years on the East Coast, it’s what skateboarding is
all about in my opinion. Come get some!

Keep up the solid site. That s#@t, much like the East
Coast in general, RULES.

Grind for life,
Shane T.

Maaan how cool is that. Seems like the ideal backyard. When I get across the pond I will stop in for some fun (my folks live an hour away).

Thanks for spreading the House of Steam word!!

Weepy used to play Double Nickels on a dime in my car all too often. I remember desperately trying to get him to take it out an put in something ridiculous like King Diamond in. I learned my lesson sooner then later. (Keep in Mind Weeps thought Cookie Puss was the greatest Beastie Boy single ever)

I did get the opportunity to see “We Jam Econo” the film about The Minutemen at Lincoln Center and sat infront of Dez Cadena (Black Flag singer)..cool time

If you dont know who Ray Barbee is then you must go study at the university of wikipedia! … and watch the Ban This video as well.

WARNING THIS MAY HYPNOTIZE YOU!!!

    June 20th, 2007 at 8:14 am eI still see those guys around. Pep Williams has always been one of my favorite pro skaters since I was a small kid and that was 20 years ago. I am 30 now.
    I ran into him in Hollywood at a party last month. It was really cool meeting him.I was talking about getting a skateboard to start back skating again.Pep said come to my car.This guy gave me his complete skateboard and shirts and stickers for my kids for free.We only talked 5 min and he gave me a complete skateboard.I couldn’t believe it. All he said was “Enjoy” and cruised back into the party like nothing happened.I was speechless. That just made my year.
    I am skating again. Not as good as I use to but I am cruising and carving all over my local skatepark.J ust want to say thanks you so much Pep Williams for bringing skateboarding back to my life. I am forever thankful.

SO this is what Sean wrote on the site and I took it upon myself to test Pep Williams coolness and lordy, lordy…He Is cool as they come.

-Jason

114: More from Neal Hendrix Dog psssssr to fakie 2006 Woodward West

Neal Hendrix dog pssssssr to fakie(yikes) 2006 woodward west

So whats Neal done and been up to?

I asked him….

Hmmm, a rundown of my skate career????? Holy cow, here goes….

Grew up outside of Winston-Salem,NC skating backyards and later parks
all over the mid Atlantic. Started to progress with skating when
Eastern Vert park opened in early 1990. Turned pro for New Deal in May
1991 and started traveling around the world almost full time. Eastern
Vert closed in 1993 and I moved to Southern California to be closer to
sponsors and good vert ramps. Started riding for Black Label in 1997.
Skated on the Vans Warped Tour doing vert demo’s in the US and all over
the world every summer from 1995 until about 2004. Have been skating
all of the Pro vert contests the last few years, usually about 20 comps
a year. In 2005 I started working from home for Woodward Camp which is
my first real job since I turned pro! Won Skatepark of Tampa Pro vert
contest and Shanghai Showdown in 2005. Last year skated on the Tony
Hawk Boom Boom Huckjam Tour for the first time. Nowadays, skating tons,
trying to keep my 33 year old body healthy, getting ready for a super
busy 2007 on the vert contest/demo circus, working on a bunch of cool
new projects for Woodward.

Sounds like a life worth living my Brutha!! Keep us posted and let us know whats goin down at Woodward…..
