SD heads: is this spot still around?
« on: January 20, 2017, 11:50:35 AM »
One of my all time favorite skate photos. I think it's SD.
Sign says Avenida del Rio.  Tried to look it up on Street View but no sign of it, so probably long gone. Still need to know.

Yes, its still there. Corner of Avenida del Rio & Camino de la Reina. Right across the street from that David Gonzales Thrasher cover grind. Also Nick Dompierre's Ollie cover.
It's a little different. There is a fence near the street now.

Thanks bro! Can't believe it's still there after more than 25 years.  My buddy wants to go there and recreate the picture.

This is a great photo for such an idea given the basketball player's gear. Post up the result here!

This is right next to that mall with the parking garage euro gap that Chris Cole big flipped in Strange World, huh?

Some buddies and I went there one time, and that thing is so much bigger than it looks!
