Jim’s Ramp Jam
What was old is new again. One of my friends posted a link to heat 1 of Jim’s Thiebaud’s ramp jam yesterday. Heat 1 was stacked with a who’s who of ramp skating in 1996. The video clip is so sick. Many of the tricks done by the pros of the day have now once again become the rad tricksto do. Many of the tricks and the way they were done had fallen out of the cool things to do throughout the 2000′s. I’m happy these tricks are on the come back.
