491: Power Edge Magazine: “The Movie”

I dug Power Edge magazine. Sometimes Thrasher tried to be too punk and sometime Transworld was too corporate and then there was Power Edge, right in the middle. Any magazine from back in the day that would put photos of your friends in print (even with bad grammar and misspellings) especially if they were The Captain and Berne seemed all right by me. So now its 2010 and they have made a film and I say having only viewed the trailer once….Im with PE…whatever they say! Starting in 1987 they shined the light in places other were’nt…. so hats off to em in 2010 I hope this is a big hit for’em.

No one would let us snowboard on there ski slopes yet. Soon Alpine Mountain would be one of the first but until then when it snowed it was either ride The Barn or grab a shovel.

 Maaan it would be cold at first then you would heat up start sweating and if you didnt keep skating you would freeze…and the ramp was extra hard when you slammed too.  

Rocky Team Steam’s SBC captain did big stretchy eggplants and killer Indy airs too boot!

47: Who’s on Deck?…84 Tom Groholski’s ramp New Jersey

Bernie O’Dowd slob air at Tom Groholski’s ramp New Jersey 1984

Vallely used to skate Tom’s ramp. He was just some quiet kid we didn’t talk
to. I’m wearing a green Cooper hockey helmet that I bought at a skatepark in
the 70’s. Mertz told me years later that they all referred to me as “Pickel
Head”.

Bernie sent me this email and I have been laughing for days. It has inspired our newest category…Who’s on deck? (more to come)

46: TEAM STEAM CARD: DAN TAG 1987

Dan Tag Slug Ramp in the Snow 1987

I created a series (14 or 15 in all)  of Team Steam Trading cards (they are actually stickers) in our High Schools graphic arts department in 1987.

They are as big as a baseball card and almost every member at the time had one, including the Barn itself and The Raging Lamos.

Special thanks goes to Mr. Abella our Graphics teacher for letting me hog the printing press all the time and floating us copious amounts of sticker paper. Mr Abella was the most skate friendly adult the world had seen at the time.
