OLD PHOTOS OF THE DAY


These are some shots I took of Chad Kramer ..1995-96? We had a demo behind the old Fitchburg store with Chad, Andy Mac, Salman Agah and others that I don't remember..Preston M was there too. I always liked building ghetto things for people to try out and this sketchy 8' long loading dock tranny to tiny tranny transfer was pretty ghetto but Chad stuck it. I believe it was an Es' demo we were having. ( Hans says it was a Woodward demo which could make sense ) Chad was skating for the Seattle based Torque Skateboards at the time. The shot in the woods was an after demo session on 2z's mini ramp. Not long after this shot Chad ended up going off the edge of the ramp into a tree with his back. Session over. That's EB owner Tabor Coates on the ramp decks in the green EB tshirt. ( he's incredibly old but still kills it ) On the red EB 1/4 pipe is also Steve "unsung ruler" Chiasson, and EB's "I'm happiest when I'm grumpy" Hans Warehouse Stacy.

It was a woodward demo. Look at the banner behind the smith genius.

Quite possible that it was a Woodward demo..at least I saved the photos instead of brain cells.
