I had a 11 foot quarter pipe in front of my house one summer till the county came by and said get it off the street or were gonna demolish it with the snowplow. Also went to the Ranch in Colton Ca. "home of the variflex team". Friends ramps also.

Early to mid 70s everywhere I could and a concrete park in east Atlanta maybe Dekalb.  It had a killer snake run with a nice set of clover shaped bowls at the end!!!  
Late 70s    Aala Park, Honolulu, HI...  not much to it,  but it was fun!! And alot of drainage ditches on the military bases, up in the mountains.  God bless the Army Corp. of Engineers.  They over build "EVERYTHING"

All those membership cards are bringing back memories! I can only count SkateWorld in Torrance (anyone remember the cross streets?) & Marina del Rey in my membership roster...Aala Park in DT Honolulu didn't require membership cards!

Looking back, I feel gyp'd...I was too young to drive & my parents weren't fond of my skating, so it was hard to go on a regular basis. But it did force me & my friends to design & build some killer backyard ramps!

Here's a pool we had going for a few years in NJ.  Nice view of Manhattan, too.

PM brah! Just found out yesterday that Hawaiina John & I are from the same neighborhood 'Makakilo Hawaii'. Man, it's a small world. Keep in touch, Johnnie!

Peace,

Very true... Aala park was it! And there was no center street course like they got now... just round walls that went over-vert, man I miss airing out in the corners at that place. The only other thing around were the ditches, which were always closer for me than Aala park... lol.

Yeah, it's definitely cool that we're from the same neighborhood! Oh-- I wanted to ask you since you're a Makakilo OG like me (Pre-Kapolei Time) - what do you think of the state accepting Kapolei as the city name... not Makakilo? I was pissed when I heard that. Shit, Kapolei was nothing but fields of sugarcane when I first moved there!! Makas is the ORIGINAL town... not friggin Kapolei!! That sucks!! Oh well, the struggle goes on...

places skated/frequented:

Rainbow Wave - Tampa Florida
Upland /Pipeline Skatepark
Del Mar SkateRanch
3 places I can't remember the names:
- one was a fiberglass in an old grocery store in Evanston or Elgin Ill
- the other was in Chicago - had these pinball fiberglass ramps that you could score points on the higher you went plus it had one of those see through plexiglass halfpipes
- the other was a cement park at the end of the runway in Tampa FLa.

Skated "Cadillac Wheels" in Popano, FL. Huge keyhole 14 feet with 4 feet of vert, tiles & cement coping. Will post pics shortly. Learned foot plants, cess slides, grinding burts. Also had a great tight oval shaped banked bowl real tight and you could frontside slides all day long. This place was sweet and uncrowded. Had lot's of respect since only a hand full could gring this huge one.

Awesome Scooter!  The place was all locked up by the time I got there.  I could only look through the fence and drool (actually, I think I was peeing in my pants).  Even from outside the fence I could tell that that keyhole was hairy.  Post all the picks you can.  I would love to see them.  And if you have any of Skateboard Safari or Solid Surf, I would love to see those too.  Thanks.

@Teamfun - If you skated Skate City in London then you must have been to the SouthBank as well. Do you remember the indoor part of  Skate City with the wood ramps that everyone went to when it rained. I remember having to scramble over loads of mud and building debris to get to the indoor part.
