That was rad, thanks for sharing. I've never seen footy of Sparks showing the different bowls, really cool to see. I just missed this era and never got to skate Golf n Fun and Sparks so really cool to see more of what was there. Gotta dig the skate style. Looks like Scott Negron is in this? I don't know him, but have seen him post up about local SB skate stuff over the years.

very short period of time between age 10 and 12 but I got almost two years in at Sparks and even after it closed they did not bulldoze the baby pool so we had some thing to skate. My friend and I dared each other to drop in the pro bowl (first bowl shown on video #1) both got stuck and Sparks had no ladder so they got the fireman to help across the street. Golf and stuff was fun but not even close to as good as Sparks but still got a little more time into skating bowls I even roller skated G&S but after that it was the walls for me and then a half pipe my dad helped me build in the back yard. I was not into street skating and the half pipe got sold because I was surfing more and really only skated to surf the streets or get to 7-11. In the last year and half mostly due to flat spells and wanting a little more speed I got back into skating bowls and having a blast again at 47.

Very cool footage.  One question:  What, no HD??  [wink]

Can only imagine what additional amazing footage we'd have if everyone back then had an HD vidcam in their pocket like now.

Thanks for posting up.

Yes imagine the crowds as well I like it just how it was no HD and cell phones to call all your buddies to come specially with the surf which between internet and surf report has been dead for years. I started skating again because of flatness, dealing with crowds, and SUP kooks in this order and found skateparks are full of stoke no matter ability even in this age.

I wasn't making social commentary in favor of the general ways cell phones are used today.  Merely from the amount of additional historical footage archive perspective.

At times I wish that I had a camera to capture some of the things me and my friends did But just being able to remember and share the experience is just as cool. Sometimes the story is bigger each time it’s told.
