When Ocean City got the new vert ramp, everyone came to skate it. I stayed there on and off for a few summers while living in my van. Lots of great sessions went down. Here are just a few photos....

We all miss Blaize. His style was the best. channel sweep.

The legendary Tom Groholski serves up a healthy frontside air to grind.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

me-frigid air. Me, Ken Sigafoos and Fred Smith had a band called Triple Negative because we all had such violent tempers....
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Long time local Dave Messick put out a great video called "The Ocean Bowl Story". This video has everything in it. Call up Atlantic Skates in O.C. to get a copy. You won't be disappointed.

The bowl was always fun for a little cruisin'

Geoff Graham-smith grind.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Buster Halterman was just comin' up...

Bernie o'dowd-the first originator of going backwards or "switch" as it is now called. He was the first to drop in backwards, do backwards airs and the now famous bernie 5000.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The back of this photo says Mertz-channel plant. So that's what it is, a channel plant. The funny thing about this photo is that I have no front teeth. I knocked them out 8 months before this at the Stone Mountain NSA contest. A year and a half passed before I got front teeth and I didn't even care.
