My recollections of the Rumble in Ramona are in bits and pieces. I remember the hour and a half drive from San Clemente. I clearly remember the seemingly bottomless cooler of ice cold Budweisers that was on the deck of the vert ramp. Barring that, my memories are drunken fragments.

What stuck out was that basically every person that skated the Rumble couldn't wait for next year. This wasn't a contest. This was a vert ramp session with a big group of friends involving plenty of beer and shit talking. Copious amounts of alcohol was consumed, weed was smoked and a shroomed Hewitt fell asleep on the ramps deck. I may or may not have farted about a foot from Pedro's head and it's possible that I may have failed to own up to it.

Burgers and dogs were grilled while Nihilist and JFA provided the sounds. There may have been other bands there, but I'll be dammed if I can remember. If that weren't enough, Lucky 13 Apparel had a pin-up girl contest. Once the Rumble ended , everyone headed to the bar (Ramona's in the middle of fucking nowhere so there's not much else to do) and ended the night back at the ramp with a couple more cases of beer.

Somewhere in the middle of all of that, Ponts and Partanen got in a fistfight resulting in a pair of shiners for Al (they eventually got over it), one of the Creature dudes hooked up with a pin-up chick and Darren Navarette agreed to let me interview him. Nice.

A few weeks later, I get off of work around 5 PM, drive south on the 5, stop off at the 7-11 to grab a 12 pack of Tecate and head to Darren's house in Mission Beach. It's a small San Diego beach community where lots of bars, single women and tons of other fun shit are all crammed into one small strip of land. They even have a fucking roller coaster. The best way I can describe it is that's it similar to the Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach with less goons in Affliction t-shirts, cheaper drinks and attainable females.

Coming very soon.....
