Sean Sheffey Brooklyn Bridge Banks
Photo Todd Laffler
Weep used to always mention Sheffey….sheffey ollied this,Sheffey clear that, Sheffey could ollie across a street… at one point he seemed to become the yard stick in which to measure any street skating challenge. After seeing some of his video parts Weep was right….so I always dug Sean Sheffey or at least the idea of him, we never met. He does have an unforgettable name, he rode for SHUT had ties to DC (I think via Maryland) and Freedom Plaza (I lived in DC for awhile) and lets face facts he was the Einstein of Street skating back when skateboards were the size of Ford Pintos. The part of the bank he is on in the above picture is miniscule for those kinda hover board results. Looks like Sean is making a comeback and isgood mates with Mega Ramp Legend Jake Brown (Sean is standing in flat bottom of the ramp in this vid) so hopefully we will see a new ProgSkate Vid with a killer Sheffey part.
PS Todd Laffler rules.

Rob Roskopp Sad Plant The Barn circa 1986?
The fish eye lense used in taking this photo makes the Barn look alot more spacious then it was..there was no Tardis effect in reality The Barn looked big from the outside and small on the inside. The Barn defied a lot of things but the physics of spatial relations was not one of them.
There is Weep peaking his head around Jeff’s shoulder on the deck. Anyone know who the third skater was?
Jeff Roenning was a big part of NJ skate, he had 5 or 6 backyard ramps under his belt throughout the 80’s and was responsible for alot of pro visits to the area including Roskopp and Chris Miller. JR has sent me a ton of great pictures a couple of which are categorized under Photos by Jeff Roenning which are worth a look and a lot of long overdue pics I promise to get resized and put into the archive. (I blame my lack of a decent Apple product for their delay)
