Small Town Simpatico

Monday Cover Vol. 3 Issue 48 - Jeff Ament

Growing up in a small mid-American town in the 70’s and trying to get your skate on was a bit of a challenge. Skateboarder magazine, possibly a set of Rampage ramp plans and your personal ingenuity were your ticket to survival. So, how many folks out there built a Rampage ramp? How many cut it in half at the bottom and inserted some flat? How many cut it down and put it inside of a garage or other building so you could skate through the Winter months? Like so many of us, this week’s Monday Cover skater, Jeff Ament, shares those skate roots. Check out more pics of Jeff shredding it up after the turn.

Congratulations Jeff!
