Slob fastplants are hard tricks—and when done by Lee Ralph, they're classics. The facial alone says it all: "Eeeeaaagh!" Photo: Kevin Thatcher

610jp-backside-air
Indoor pools: Two words that go great together. They called Rob Roskopp "The Barn" because he was built like one and he was from Ohio. Knee pads didn't help much at San Jose's Sanitarium pool circa 1986. Photo: Stecyk

610jp-losi
Classic spots keep coming back into our lives. Buena Vista's seen four decades of ripping; last I heard they'd dug it out with rusty spoons. Non-local Al Losi jams a quick backside air, 1988.

610jp-invert
Bill Ruff tuck-knees a proper invert above SF at Sam Finger's ramp in Hunter's Point. Check the skyline—when I see photos like this, I think they could've been covers.

610jp-gator
This is a shot of Gator before vert died (yes, it did). These guys were rock stars one minute, and then next thing you know… Shit happens. This is an outtake of the famous Gonz Supercush ad shoot on the rooftop pool n Melbourne, OZ, catchin' some rays before the Torquay Ramp Riot in 1987. In jail for life. Sucks. Photo: Kevin Thatcher

610jp-joes-ramp
Overview of Joe's Ramp Jam. The Barn jumps the onion while all 40 people gaze on in astonishment. Was the suitcase for Miami Vice, or for the $250 in prize money? Ridiculous. Twenty-feet wide, Masonite, and the sun. Slam time.

    Back in 2011 P-Stone put together this collection of Jake footage. We all know about his barging abilities, but the old man had a deep bag of tricks! Lemmy on the track, Phelper on the stuntwood. Skate and Destroy.

    SOTY was everything you could imagine and more. Grant went hard, Trash Talk took it further, and Left Brain from Mellowhype handled the ender. What did the 5 fingers say to the face???
