Jim Howell- BS Smith. PA.

Sometimes & some places, one must make do, in the search for rideable surfaces. We cannot always have pools to ride. Ramps have been a constant thing throughout my skating, as they have for others. Jim Howell has always had ramps…as long as I’ve known him. (35+ years). It appears as though Darren Ho has had his fair share of ramps to ride as well. Two different pool skaters from thousands of miles apart, connected by wood, concrete & the need for weightlessness. If you live somewhere and have no pools or bowls…build one. It’ll change your life. Thanks to Jim Howell (Love you my brother!),  Jim Goodrich, and Brian Walnum for the images. Skate-Ozzie
