No big deal they all look good, but if you wanted you could use the straightening tool in PS

I know those places well. I grew up vacationing there. I like the night time shots.

Here are some I took a few years ago and early in spring (Canon S60 and Olympus 510)

Here are some I took this summer (Olympus 510).

We go there every year now and I wake up before sunrise to take a series.

I grew up in North Jersey and every spring our church youth group would spend Memorial day weekend in Ocean City. Always had a great time, but back then Ocean City didn't have a boardwalk like that! Thanks for the pix and a reminder of a great time of my life.

I am 43 also and had used that park on a few occasions given that I went everywhere with my board. Unfortunately I do not have any photos of the skate park.

I occasionally think back to that park and contemplate how that type of thing would be impossible to construct now with liability law the way it is today. It's a shame really. A lot of the things that we would take for granted when we were kids have now either been legislated away or made impossible because of liability concerns. Good luck on your search. If you happen to dig some photos up please post back under this topic so I can get a notification. If I come across any I'll do the same.

hey that is great that you to remember wonder wave... its was my first park and never forgot it... I'm still involved in skating today... I had part in having a couple parks built, the newest being a public park in my home town Maple Shade, NJ ... things for the most are better now we can have public park built and is under the insurance of the town... stats say that more kids get hurt in team sports then skateboarding so its working in our favor now.... MapleShadeSkatepark.com

you might remember Cherry Hill skatepark as well?? (1978-1981) I have a tribute site for the park CherryHillSkatepark.com .... check those links out when ya have a sec
