Rob Roskopp Sad Plant The Barn circa 1986?
The fish eye lense used in taking this photo makes the Barn look alot more spacious then it was..there was no Tardis effect in reality The Barn looked big from the outside and small on the inside. The Barn defied a lot of things but the physics of spatial relations was not one of them.
There is Weep peaking his head around Jeff’s shoulder on the deck. Anyone know who the third skater was?
Jeff Roenning was a big part of NJ skate, he had 5 or 6 backyard ramps under his belt throughout the 80′s and was responsible for alot of pro visits to the area including Roskopp and Chris Miller. JR has sent me a ton of great pictures a couple of which are categorized under Photos by Jeff Roenning which are worth a look and a lot of long overdue pics I promise to get resized and put into the archive. (I blame my lack of a decent Apple product for their delay)

Well if this pic dont beat all!
Rob Roskopp came to do some board signing at the shop and road the Barn as well. I think he had Steve Olsen along with him on this visit. I remember Steve (Olsen) signing my black n white checkered Olsen signature model and writing Skate or Die on my black jacket (I’ll getta pic up of that board I know I got it in storage)
I really dont know what else to say about this one….Cept NICE ONE! Roenning!
Well since Rob was cool back n the D I figured I would plug his current Venture.
SANTA CRUZ BIKES seems he designs some sick mountain bikes under the Santa Cruz name. Click the photo and read a great interview…..
