  1. I’m looking forward to the Goshen pictures, I used to go down there quite a lot staying at Gooey’s house (remember Team Manic?). The mini and vert were awesome. Incidentally, relating to the comments / discussion on a previous post, they were both covered in Masonite.

  2. Hi,

    Can you help? or advise
    I am looking to try and obtain a vintage copy RAD issue 100 (Sept 1991). Only because my son disbelieves me that I used to skateboard and a photo of me at Leigh-on-sea skate park with Tony Hawk.

    Many thanks
    Martin Parrott
