Roastbeef

Ein selten gesehener grab, roastbeef!
Wer ist das? Ich glaube ein US-Amerikaner der oft im Tropica war, ich weiß leider den Namen auch nicht mehr. Ich glaube aber er war für den berühmten Spruch auf der großen Rampe verantwortlich ("It is better to regret something you have done than to regret something you haven´t done" - das wohl bezogen auf Skateboardtricks die Mut erfordern, z.Bsp. acid drops)
GreenRamp ca. 1992
Von Nico Heresch: Es ist RAY JOHNSON
Von "Anonym" (und ich glaub das stimmt eher): JEFF BECK
(hey Nico schreib mir ne E-Mail: sk8chris(a)web.de)
Es IST Jeff Beck (s. Kommentare)

A grab rarely seen, roastbeef! Who is this? I think it is a US-American who was seen at the Tropica regularely, I forgot his name too. I think he was responsible for the famous writing on the big ramp. ("It is better to regret something you have done than to regret something you haven´t done" - related to skateboardtricks that require some balls, for example acid drops)
