Now for our next tale, at some point while I was in WHRHS(Watchung Hills Regional Hot Skater), I picked up an very old Kodak Duaflex IV twin lens reflex, with a single bulb Lumaclad Reflector flash, at a garage sale for $5.00 (pretty steep, but well worth it). These were made by Kodak from 1947 to 1960 (mine looks mid ’50s).
I shot all my Graphic Arts photos with this old thing. I took it on skate trips too. During the summer of 1988 (Aug.), we hit the Blue Metal in OC (many times) and I took the attached shots.
Rick Charno did a head high BS Mute air. If you look close, it looks like he has two heads.
Geoff Graham slid a crazy FS rail grind at a high rate of speed.
Darren “the Moose” Menditto, chuck a huge FS tuck knee, that was a complete blur.
This was the life. The Bay was a block to my right and the Beach was 3 blocks to my left. We had a free place to stay and we skated all day for free with the best skaters on the East Coast.
I still have this old Kodak, and they now sell for $20 bucks on eBay.
Nice one Dennis!!
