This is my main man, Ron “Supreme” Klepin, busting out an ollie stalefish at Kiener Plaza (STL) in the late 80’s. Somehow I have been lucky enough to have Ron by my side to help make my ideas become a reality throughout my lifetime. I grew up skating with him as a kid and he was also the first skater in Collinsville, IL to get a ticket for skateboarding after skateboarding became a crime in Collinsville in 1989. *Ron was my partner and head of construction when we opened Bellevilles first (and only) indoor skatepark, the Big Top Skatepark in 2002, and he was the mastermind behind our mini-spine ramp at Jolly Roger Skateboards in 2013.

This is what skateboarding in Belleville, IL. looked like before some of you where even born. You can't just roll up with John Buehlhorn and a launch ramp at the square these days, but then again you weren't supposed to back then either.
