Hadji's ramp was first I ever skated. Cool seeing some images of that old spot.

now... help me out as I was on the peripheral of all this

was Hadji Terrence as in The Rayburn Ramp?

nathan said...

Thats the one. Terrence (aka Hadji) and Bob lived there. I think it was like 9 and 1 then cut down to a punk ramp. They threw a big contest there in like '83 or '84 that was covered in Freestylin' magazine, a subsidiary of BMX Action. You may be able to find some images if you dig around. I had some good ones back in the day, but I think they all got trashed. I think that may be Adam (aka Spike) with the sling chillin' in the photo when he was down with a broken clavicle

okay... piecing it together

Terrence and Bob are brothers...
the was a guy named Glenn that lived there too...

I met my wife Lisa through Glenn...
so I know those guys
but more from my twenties than from my teens

funny... I think that I was at that ramp when then Adam now Spike crashed and broke his clavicle
even more funny I thought for a second that that person could be me... but more than likely it is chip cashel (rip)

I am going to take another look and try to zoom in

gwadzilla said...

no me.

does not look like chip either... definitely not Adam

nathan said...

Yeah, Adam broke his collar bone trying to air over a board someone was holding over their head and hung up. Glen Graziano. When I met him he also had a broken collar bone from hitting this wooden gap jump in Adam's yard. Could be Farrel on the deck? Those guys didnt hang there much. I worked for Bob for several years when he had his landscaping gig. Good guy and was a talented photog.

too funny... I worked for Glenn

I think that Terrance may have reviewed video games for some skate magazine while bob may have been a skate photographer

I like those guys... good people
