JON ROA SLASHES THE EGG BOWL IN 1987 | PHOTO: CHRIS ORTIZ

This photo was taken by Thrasher/Transworld staff and Chain of Strength back cover photographer, Chris Ortiz. It was an extremely bustable pool in Pomona named the Egg Bowl. It was the last run of the session and, as you can see, it was very dark.

This session featured, among others, Micke Alba, Steve Alba, Chris Robison and if I remember correctly, Alan Losi. I sat out most of the session for obvious reasons (I could not hang with them) but when the last of that crew was out, I got in and took one last run. Mr. Ortiz shot this and I am glad he did.
