Maps to the Skaters… Holmes!

Does anyone remember this guy from way back in the beginning of the Oregon Skatepark boom? So far back, in fact, that this is a scan of a photograph taken with actual film. I think we only had Newberg (where this was taken,) Ausmville, Lincoln City, and Waldport when this was taken. Of course, Burnside, and the first version of Pier Park. Maybe Brookings too. Was his name Chris? He took an old airport shuttle van and tried to make a go of operating a skatepark tour shuttle service. I don’t think it worked out.

OK, technically there were some other parks around at this time. Maybe Redmond too. But this was well before the big boom that included the new Pier Park, West Linn, Reedsport, Holly Farm, Glenhaven, Ed Benedict, Gabriel Park, Brooklyn Street, etc..
