This is one of the best  threads ever!!!!

Cheers John, much appreciated.  :daumenhoch:

I just figured there was SO many people that didn't get the credit they deserved! My opener was a perfect example, nobody mentions Donovan Ritter these days and the guy was awesome! As we all know Mike D was way ahead of his time and DR was around at the same time as Fiola, Sigur, Dominguez etc. etc. but he NEVER gets a name check, weird!

Make your own minds up....

Ritter is the one on the far right...obviously! And by the way, Fiola won the highest air that day but you can clearly see he didn't!


Love the pics - where'd you get the one of him on the Sport at Del Mar? It's cool - and damn high!
I think you've proved your point there Daz!

It's off Mike D's myspace page Gaz, there's loads more on there and some awesome one's of Mike too.
