Brian skated in the Spokane Valley, 1978, this looks like the crew. Notice the 8 foot wide, no flat half-pipe. Skateboarder magazine printed plans, right in the magazine at the time, and many of us copied them and built this exact ramp. (Click photo for larger image).
   Here's Brian riding his ramp with no pads (well, he does have his safety hat on), doing a wheeler on a G & S Warp Tail 2. (Click photo for larger image).


   Joe Long moved to Spokane from California and did frontside airs and rock n' rolls on the gnarly side of the ramp (1978). (Click photo for larger image).
   Brian doing a grind at the Spoke N Sport ramp in Spokane. John Bianchi from Seattle is sitting in the corner; he was the best skater on the ramp with 50-50 to fakie and lot's more almost 20 years ago. (Click photo for larger image).

   Brian learned 360 Rock'n Rolls before the ramp closed due to insurance costs. (Click photo for larger image).
   Bill Hagy skating UTF (under the freeway) before it was an official skatepark (In Spokane). He owned a skateshop and promoted contests held in downtown Spokane. Bill had a huge influence on Brian's skating during the mid to late eighties. (Click photo for larger image).


   Brian couldn't remember his name, but he could ride way oververt at the local 20 ft full pipe, and he used to skate in the barn ramps in Montana (That sounds interesting too).(Click photo for larger image).
