Groholski's ramp. '83-'84 New Brunswick, NJ.

We spent a lot of time at Tom's ramp and let me tell you, he could rip it!!! The first time I saw Tom skate it-I was in complete disbelief. I never saw anyone skate so good, and that ramp was gnarly!!! Skinny and slippery as hell and unforgiving. I can still remember the sound as my hip would bounce of the plexiglass. POWWWW!!!!!! and the time my friend Jonathon went flying off the side of the ramp, over the fence, and landed in a pile of trash, and the time we drove all the way down there to find Tom's little bastard of a brother hosing the ramp down and using it as a slip 'n slide....damn good sessions went down there. I wish I could find more of my photos but, for now this will have to do...

Tom grinding the extension!! The
ramp was only 12'wide and he threw
an extension on it!!! He could do
whatever he wanted on that thing.

Tom "The Jersey Devil" chucking a
frontside boneless off the extension.
I'm telling you-he could hit 20 walls
every run with no problem at all....

Jim Murphy hosting an indy air off
the extension. Murph brought the
double cut to NJ man he could rip.
Unrelenting aggression in every run!!
One of my idols....check out the snow.
