Ocean City, Md. 1988-89

"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...." Rob

Mertz-frigid air." Me, Ken Sigafoos and Fred Smith had a band called Triple Negative because we all had such violent tempers. One time I threw my helmet thru the bay window of the trailer there...."Rob

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 fun for a little cruisin'.

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." Rob
