Cool cine film Wes. 

Here's some footage a friend of mine has had converted that his dad took when Tony Alva was on his European tour and visited my local park, SkateStar at Guildford, England.

Nice! Speed wobbling makes you feel like you're going 20mph faster too.

The footage is brilliant but why did they put that soundtrack to it?

I'm pretty sure the bowl was 12 feet deep, the odd transition made it really difficult to pump.

Yeah, certainly an unusual choice Tony.

It looks as vertigo-inducing as I remember it. My skater mates and I used to skate it after the place closed down in autumn '79. By then the drainage was blocked up so there'd be a pool of water at the bottom. All we could do was roll in and carve around it. Ticked the box of skating a '70s pool at least.
