Nice one Dennis!! Remember the days of being able to eat pizza twice a day and riding the Barn kept you looking like Bruce Lee.

For the last couple month I have been receiving (and hoarding like treasure) a lot of great artifacts for the archive. 20-30 never before seen Barn photos and also some amazing relics from Cheap Skates. I will be doing my best to get all of this wealth distributed to everyone via the archive as timely as possible. If you have anything remember you can email me directly at jasonoliva@gmail.com

The only time I ever saw Jay wear a helmet was at CCCC. He does the craziest layback airs you will ever see and always pulls them.

This was at a ramp nearby The Slug in Pa that Steamboat brought myself, Dan Tag, Stevie D, and Jay to. He called it the Erasure ramp because the locals always seemed to play Skinny puppy and Erasure.

more pictures from this session to come.

Ken Sigafoos Team Steam Lein to Tail Slug Ramp Contest Circa 1987 PA

photo by Jason Oliva

Took a lot of photos on this day and everyone of Sigafoos doing a Madonna or lein to tail he always had his middle finger sticking out on his truck…too cool.

That is Team Steam rider Rocky Vertone with the pink helmet.

Here are some links to Ken’s website, Extinction Skateboards (which has Sigafoos boards for sale) and a cool piece someone wrote about Ken I stumbled upon the interwebness thingy.
