 That ramp......looks SOOOO '8o's!!! Looks like so many that I rode back then. Anyone here ever ride The Cambodia Ramp down between Lauderdale and Miami??  Just a wider version of BluFlame's.
 Touring pros showed up there all the time Cab, Steadham, Nolder....Craig Johnson and Tex Gibson.


   Wes---wonder where THAT deck is??? And no telling how much $$$ it would be worth today??


Great pics guys!

 That next shot looks like it could be Stone Edges' clover, or something that would be found at Kona.




   Colin, I KNOW you have some retro shots...like that RnR on the side with no platform???(hint hint)

  The next ramp I only got to skate 1 time, as it was only up during the summer,...and I think I only made it to Milwakee once that summer...I had the 27" Alva, and you had the 30" Alva...I remarked " Let me try your longboard."
 But that was a sweet quarter pipe...big too, wasn't it like 9' tall??
I know it took up a lot of driveway!!

Yeah, I think it was about 8' high or so.  It wasn't easy to reach the top.  It was hard to get enough speed pushing down the rough driveway.

I remember Stone Edge having yellow paint around the top of their bowls like that, but I also remember that clover being tight as a 15 year old virg....... well, really tight !!!
