i got those at about the same time, but didn't have money, so my dad and i used the logic of "well, we can afford a 4-foot tall ramp, so we'll just squish down the tranny. i had a 4-foot vert ramp with 8 feet of flat bottom. needless to say, i learned how to skate tight tranny pretty quickly : ) oh, those were the days
Just found this and it took me back 30+ years.
Remember reading that and thinking "Do ramps like that even exist?"
Timing/memory is hazy, but I found the "Christmas Tree Ramp" a few blocks from my house in Walnut Creek Ca way back when. It was a big deal for a bit in the 80's CA Bay Area skate scene.
Gamechanger/Lifechanger- the 80's skate grom equivalent of discovering the HOLY GRAIL. First look at the real deal as far as vert. Dropping in for the first time was a defining moment for a young teen on a Powell-Peralta General Issue...
Glory Days/Memory lane- so many adventures between Christmas Tree/Pool near BART station + Treat Blvd/Embarcadero.
