: :nice job bro,, i got into the skate scene from vegas in 78. There were about 12-14 true skateboarders and 4-5 quad skaters,,i did get the chance to shate with fred bllod and tony hawk in the same year.
: i skated with them at Big-o, in the late 70's. i also saw jamie ide rip the full pipe and combi pools atpipeline shortly after the 1980 gold cup finals wich caballero won,and chris miller slammed in the sqare pool.. vegas has a few parks but non like the 80's..
: soon after i learned the backflip at teh del marskateranch, being 13 was the best.....
: keep grinding andstay above the coping

Wow, I had to read that a few times to know it was not me. The only difference is that I did not start skating in Vegas. Did you ever skate in A.S.P.O.? Jamie Ide ripped so hard. I saw Fred Blood skate at Marina Del Rey and he gave me some wheels at Skatercross when I was a youngster. I am curious who the quad skaters were that you skated with? I think I got into skating around 1981? I was on the Skatercross team and skated a lot of the A.S.P.O. events and then it turned into CASL.
