Here are a few more. Skatopia was rad:

When my Parents went to Las Vegas, they would drop me off at "Desert Surf" skatepark:

I even rode for a shop for bit in late '77. They were actually a Ski shop getting into skateboarding. I think it took "tic-tacs" and jumping over my friend to get on the "team"...It was lame

Didn't know so many of us were from NJ. How the hell did I miss the part about moving from NJ to California. I only made it half way across the US. Guess I better pack up my shit and finish my journey westward.

And a few others...

Malden, Newington, Big Bear, Musser's(that shithead) ramp, Ross' ramp, Paxton ramp, James' ramp. 

If you skated in MA between 76' - 86' then you must have rode at least one of these spots!

Negatory CretinHop,

Blew out my knee doing a layback on my 1st run, don't ask it was a sad story!

Biddles (Milwaukee)
Surfin' Turf (Milwaukee)
Solid Surf (Ft. Lauderdale)
Skateboard Haven (Hollywood, FL)
Skateboard Safari (West Palm Beach)

Saw Cadillac Wheels in Pompano Beach, FL after it closed, before it was demolished, but never got to skate it.  I remember it had a really deep, tight keyhole pool.  Looked like you could practically jump across it, it was so tight.  Anybody here ever skate that thing?

so many classic spots listed, i always wondered what they were like. Funny how natural surfspots, which dont break often..last forever. Skatespots, which break every minute of every day..dont last so long. I guess it all evens out.

i skated Solid Surf in Ft Lauderdale, Fyber Rider in New Haven, and Yagoo Valley in RI. The Glass bowl, which was a big round pool with a tiled island in the middle. Made pilgramige, skated Carlsbad, Reseda, Movin On, Skatopia, Paramount. Skated the ditch in Bethlehem pa the most.

want to skate: Baldy, A keyhole pool, ABQ Indian School Ditch
