This beauty is in its second configuration… Phase one reigned from 1998-2000, and now phase two has been skateable since Feb 2003.  It’s been called different things over the years… Overboard ramp, Overload ramp, Edgemont ramp, Look Back Ramp… but it doesn’t matter what you call it… It’s a fun contraption with lots of bells and whistles. One 16ft flat wall with 3 inch steel coping.

The other side gets complicated… 7 feet of parking block, 3 feet of pool coping set back a foot, 6 feet of vert wall set back several feet and it goes all the way to the roof. If you hit any portion of your board on the roof, you get to sign the wall.

Fudge was first, soon followed by Jesse Fritsch. Over the years Keegan Sauder, Chris Center, Stu Graham, Tony Cervantes, and many others have hit their nose on the roof and rode it out fakie.

More recently Matt Swanguen boosted a frontside all the way up to hit his tail on the roof. Chad Bartie is the only rip rider to ollie from the the curb over the pool block to the vert wall.

Still waiting on someone to punch out to the washer/dryer unit and pull back in… If you wanna ride, the riddle begins here www.lookbacklibrary.org
