Tony Buyalos & Russ Pope.
Shorty's & Scarecrow.
I don't know much Eppic. They were around in the mid to late 1980s. It was operated by Louis Carleton, who went on to create the mysterious Small Room. Some of the riders included Eddie Gomez, Bryan Pennington, Dave Donalson, Kris Markovich, and Sal Barbier.
The two guys throwing boards into the fire are Russ Pope and Tony Buyalos. Pope would later start Creature and Scarecrow. Buyalos was the man responsible for Shorty's, the bolt company that evolved into a board company and later scaled back down to a hardware company.
