Hey TonyB: I never skated the indoor part(I prefer crete) and I always travelled via train on totally dry days as I lived about 90-100 miles from London. Also, I forgot to add Central Park, the Harlem and Brooklyn banks In NYC; Colchester not Glasonbury,CT(cretesk8 pk), and it was Lynnhaven Skate Park in Va Beach that eluded me yesterday...I even forgot to add some pools in TX(Dallas-area) and ditches in Colorado Springs during my first snowboard trip out west on my wooden Burton Backhill.

Scooter all those images point to your local hard drive....You have to upload them to a server somewhere and then post the URL's.....Please revise post. Thanks!

Yo! Momma,
We sure could use a FAQ on posting pics here. 

Scooter, You need to upload those photos to somewhere on the web.  Many here use http://photobucket.com/ .   Once you've uploaded the pics to photobucket, then paste the URL (link) of the uploaded photo into your message.

Scooter, that bowl is a MONSTER!.... fricken scary. The closest thing we had to that -- back in the day -- was Goleta. It a a very similar bowl, with a keyhole roll-in, but it was "only" 13 feet deep. The roll-in was so steep, it had ladder steps in the crete, so you could get back out of the bowl. I only rode it once, and didn't do anything like you're doing in those pics....  I really just tried to survive it! VERY nice skatng in your pics.

Hey Oldkook

I was used to skating public pools, the ones with a 2 or 3 ft tranny and 8 ft of vert, so this bowl was the first skatepark type bowl i skated. It also a steep roll in actually 2 transitions from the shallow, by the time you got in the deep end you were hauling serious ass and there was no room to bail at that point. So you'd just follow the tranny jerk your arms and weight up there and there you were at the top with still a lot of freaking speed.
I remember the first time i got in the bowl i would do a couple runs just running in the bowl just to get a feel for the monster.
I have negatives undevelloped of frontside smith grinds that are scary, we had coping dust flying on film. I'll get them devellopped and post soon.
We actually skated this park for a entire summer by then we had confidence and a lot of lines to pick from.
It was still hard to do the half pipe back and forth cause your lines straight up n down were so fast that your brain kept putting on the brakes on your body saying "i dont want you to die".
So i would roll in and do a backside carve and redirect into the next wall into a sick frontside smithy then down and into a a backside grind, and another and finish with a layback grind. Tried and tried to do canyon airs, but never got past half way to land it. Discovered how to ride the shallow end and started layback frontside slides eventually was doing layback fronside slide rock n rolls.
Great memories and adrenaline overdose .
Glad you enjoyed the pics and to all thanks for allowing me to post a great time.
Gerry from Tampa.

That's what I'm talkin' about Scooter!  That had to take nerves of steel to ride that thing.  Just lookin at that thing from the outside was scary enough.  Now to see it from the inside, I know it was insane. 

We had a very similar keyhole at Surfin Turf Skatepark here in Milwaukee.  I think it was 13' deep.  I remember taking off about halfway down the roll-in because I DIDN'T want to reach the top of that thing.  I may have hit the tiles once, but I can't remember anymore.  Very few skaters were grinding coping in that pool the way you did at Cadillac Wheels.  Man, I'm impressed!

If I get down to Tampa, I may have to look you up.  When do you think your halfpipe will be ready to ride?

I started skating on SuperSurfer skateboards with composition wheels back in the day. I was surfing seriously and when boards went short we started cutting down our old skateboards to make 'em look like our surfboards, pintails, diamond tails etc. I used to buy these Hobie style longboard decks with the laminated stringers at this place in Santa Monica called Shells for just a couple bucks a piece and cut them to shape in wood shop class(thank God for shop classes!). We used Chicago trucks and these blue composition(translate "rock"!) Sure Grip wheels and that was like the state of the art as far as we knew it in '70 or so. We were skating the banks at Walgrove Elementary School and at Mar Vista on those things and when we found Paul Revere we were blown away skating that big bank on rock wheels. Can't leave out Kenter and Brentwood schools.When Cadillac urethane wheels came out we thought we were cruising down the street on a bar of butter it was so much smoother!
That's when we started on Bellagio school, my fucking favourite bank back in the day!!That place was just like surfing a big right! But with a school bungalow in the impact zone!! One day after a run I felt something running down my arm and looked down to see a big raspberry on my arm bleedin' big time, I must have brushed it on the stucco wall as I went by and didn't even feel it cut me. After that it was various backyards till the skateparks all got built, and ofcourse, my fave was.....while we are showing ids I thought some might get a kick (those pics of junior skate punk Guyster cracked me up! Right on!) out of my 9th grade card from Mark Twain in Venice...look at that long haired little surfer punk in a fuckin' aloha shirt! LATE!! Anton----BonersHardware.com---
