SKATE

RIPPED RUINS: LOU CUCCARO OF METAL SKATEBOARDS.

Over the last few months, I’ve been trying my best through the written word, to pay homage to the skateboarding culture and history of Asbury Park. As a skateboarder myself, I felt it was something that was long overdue. Instead of waiting for someone else to do it, I figured I would give it my […]


CITY TO HOLD SKATEPARK DISCUSSION AS PART OF CITY COUNCIL MEETING ON WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3

A new skatepark for the city of Asbury Park is looking like a real possibility. Get involved! The skateboard history and heritage of Asbury Park is rich, yet sadly it has gone fairly unrecognized by the general public. Yes, actual skaters have known for years of Casino Skatepark, The Deal Lake Pool, Metal Skateboards, as […]


DO IT YOURSELF!

When I started skateboarding in 1985, there were no skateparks around to speak of…well, none that I knew about anyway. We did have a bunch of backyard ramps where I grew up in Brick, as well as a pool in Lake Riviera. The old blue fiberglass ramps were scattered throughout town from the Fiber Ryder […]


DIY SKATEPARK SHUT DOWN ON ASBURY’S OCEANFRONT

Skateboarders have always been labeled as anarchic and verminous outcasts, although in actuality they are genius artists of the urban landscape. Writing lines of poetry – vivid, winding, and wonderful in the concrete jungle – sadly many fail to comprehend the language. 


MIKE MIXSON IN 20 SECONDS

Belmar skater Mike Mixson has been undeniably killing it for years. Armed with a variety of tricks he executes with precision and colossal pop, he’s always a stand out. Here is a short edit of Mixson laying it down solid at the LES park in NYC. 


THE VAULTS

I have a ton of old tapes in “The Vaults” as I like to call them. A stash of about 20 or so filled with skate footage of my friends and I, dating back to the late 80’s. My very own personal time capsule filled with memories of days long washed away by the steady […]


TWO YOUNG BLOODS SKATING IN ASBURY

This photo was taken when I was still working at Langosta Lounge and Lightly Salted on the ocean front in Asbury Park. They were still building the water park and the construction made a nice gap from the platform into the street. I had been looking at it for a few weeks but my mid […]


WENNING SKATES OCEAN GROVE BOARDWALK RUINS

This picture (by Chris Spiegel) of professional skater Brian Wenning heel flipping the ruined boardwalk in Ocean Grove was recently published on Transworld Skateboarding Magazine’s website. The photo accompanies an article written by Wenning, a Sea Bright resident, opening up about his ordeal during Hurricane Sandy. Rather than evacuate, Wenning decided to stay behind to […]


BRIAN WENNING AT THE ASBURY CASINO

Over the course of the past few months, I’ve had the opportunity to shoot photos of the very influential New Jersey native skateboarder, Brian Wenning. After conquering some personal struggles that almost derailed his career, Wenning decided to start a new board company called Lockdown Skateboards. I happened to be in the right place at […]


THE SESSION AT THE DEAL LAKE SKATE POOL

The Deal Lake skate pool is the stuff of legend. Located on the north side of Asbury Park, the pool was discovered during a time when the city was littered with abandoned buildings ripe for the taking. Anchor contributor Shawn Zappo opens up about the first time the pool was skated.
