As an avid 70's skateboarder myself and being one of the innovators of the disaster. I can remember the day it started with Dan. It was at Cadillac Wheels Monster Hole and I did the trick in the pool on my last run during the 1st Contest in the Huge 14 ft pool. It won me the contest and it was gnarly doing it.
Thank You Dan that was a fun time we had back then.
