Magnussen 1986 cccc highest air

Tony Magnusson highest air 1986 Cedar Crest Country Club

Hi I was just perusing the internet to see if the famous photo of
Magnusson’s air existed on the internet…I can’t believe I found it how
amazing. I just wanted to correct the article written about it. My name is
Rick Faber from Orlando/Longwood Florida, I was the one in blue shorts holding the pool
cleaning squeegee (not a broom stick) marking the 11 feet we marked off on
the 2×4. We had just finished skating in the 86 pro-am at Mount Trashmore
before we headed up to this amazing structure of a ramp we had heard
about…what a setting, its sad it burned down. I will never forget the
sound of Tony’s wheels screaming as he soared up and way over my head to one
of the largest airs ever on a half pipe of this size. Also this photo made
the cover of thrasher magazine just can’t remember what month I think Sept.
but it was 1986 when that photo was taken. Later Magnusson t-shirts and
sweatshirts were made with this photo screen printed as a graphic, I used to
have the T and wish I could find another. Anyway just a bit of history from
the guy who measured the highest air.

Thanks for making my day dude!
