Rick Froberg of Drive Like Jehu at the Spreckel’s Organ Pavillion in San Diego. Those pipes behind him are part of the world’s largest pipe organ.

Jason Lee does a backside crailtap at Lori Rigsbee’s in 1988 or ‘89. I think those Ventures were the best looking ones they ever made.
A young Danny Way at Stagoo’s ramp off the I-5 in Leucadia. Guessing this was late 1980’s. 1988 maybe? He always ripped. Photo by Mark Waters.
Jim Namba, sadplant at Mush Ramp. 1986. Jim is still around and I see his face in San Jose sometimes when I’m lucky. Great dude, we worked together at California Surfer for a while, too.
Mark Roach ripped as hard as anyone on a vert ramp. He had more foot-to-board control than anyone I’ve ever seen except maybe Jordan Richter. He quit pretty early and he’s a photographer in Houston now. Indy air at Phillips Park in Dallas in 1990 or so.
Lester Kasai went higher frontside than any I’ve ever seen until Pedro Barros came along twenty-five years later. This was a frontside air to lien air at Del Mar in 1985.
Steve Caballero with an unusual looking invert to fakie at Les’ Fremont Ramp. Judging by the pads and the Converse shoes he’s wearing I’m guessing this is summer 1986, but I could be wrong.
