I stopped following the mags and vids regularly in like 94, but I know Peppers is the real dealio. That b-side nosegrind 180 on Hubba is both Bananas and Bonkers. Maybe one of the illest tricks there ever, at least top ten.And that ollie on whatever brick transition that was was ill and insane. It was Illsane!Actually, that's the term for guys like Pepper or Igei- Illsane.Aesthetics was a dope ass crew with Kevin Taylor and Igei and Welsh and Pepper etc.
Is that brick spot in the first photo still around?
That's Mass General right? Not sure if it's still there or skatable. I have a Thrasher I bought in 1985 that describes Gonz skating it, ollieing it. No photo though. That would have been cool to see.
Thats a a hospital in boston, I skated it when I was a kid, super steep. Was never able to hang out there due to security,just hit it ang go. and I heard the put bumps at the bottom so you cant ride it. Any one confirm this?Chops: Killer post!
its boston city hospital not mass general. i haven't been there in years so i can't confirm any current skate-stopperage but there's a few different banks... with and without trannies. same spot with the rail on top of the steep brick bank that jamal, gangeme, and a few others have flicks on. i think the jamal one's on this site. it's a really fun spot. kinda in the ghetto though... but hey, if you get stabbed or something at least the ER is around the corner.
edit: it used to be called boston city hospital but the hospital is called boston medical center or BMC now. fwiw... in case any of you all are wanting to check it out next time you're in beantown. i haven't skated there in at least a decade though... but i know i've seen footage of some of the banks there semi-recently
The tranny is gone, there are still skate able banks around the corner...
anybody have info on who's actually ollied the volcano?if you've ever been there, its got a curb at the top for an extra challangei don't recall any footy of it being done.I've heard rumors of the following rippahs doing it:Gangemi, Pepper, Gonz, Preston (thrasher filmer), Adam Air, Dan Drehobol, Matt Pailes, Dougie DeathCan any of you other skate nerds confirm these?p.s. Jahmal williams owns that spot!
Joey Pepper is sick! Another one of those guys who sorta flies under the radar.I don't really remember him being on Rhythm either.
So many sick New England skaters. That switch backsmith is mind blowing. Pepper is so slept on but doesn't seem to give a shit, which only makes him sicker.
whatever happened to this guy??i remember seeing him on an element video a LONG ass time ago and then that was it. never saw anything else
nick g... I think you're thinking of Billy Pepper.Different guy.
I've heard rumors of the following rippahs doing it:Gangemi, Pepper, Gonz, Preston (thrasher filmer), Adam Air, Dan Drehobol, Matt Pailes, Dougie DeathCan any of you other skate nerds confirm these?p.s. Jahmal williams owns that spot!You pretty much got them all. One of bosons best spots ever. Chris trembly did it in a real video I believe and pstone had a pic in transworld doing it. Pretty sure charlie Wilkins dod it also?
Charlie Wilkins too I think?
Vinny ollies the corner of it in this..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlojnhEFax8
Man, this guy has been killing it lately. His tricks in that Amazon series were amazing.
I thought that break volcano spot dosnt exist anymore. Wicked sick photo... Would love too check out that spot!
@Remmington:Vinnie Ponte is ollie-ing the smaller volcano in that clip. You can see the big one in the background.The City Hospital volcano (as it was called when I skated it almost 25 years ago) is of the most fun spots I ever skated, for sure.The whole area smelled like piss, though.Guess that's true of a lot of fun spots.
Killed it this week, chops. Expedition just posted this and I've already watched it twice: http://thekayocorp.com/KAYOTV/joey-pepper-remix
@Anonymous the smaller one was the one everyone skated and ollied over.In this Barley does a 50-50 on the bank to rail (which is also gone) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfTV3rN_yUsJahmal has an ad with a 50 on the rail, I think he did smith too. http://chromeballincident.blogspot.com/search/label/jahmal%20williams one morehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAKG_SohtS0
