I would love to have this spot back at Arizona State University (I don't know who this is):



This little four stair out rail was absolutely perfect and so much fun. This was the first rail I ever grinded, I would love to get another session on it.

Chafee in the IE was fun in its heyday,

Huntington Beach HS in its prime was good times too.

Way too many where I reside but the ledges Loy and friends built in the Santa Ana River about a decade ago were rad. Re-learned many moves on those things.

I grew up next to this mall in Orlando but there was only one tiny section of a quarter pipe left in front of the security window by the time I started skating in '99-2000. You can still see the remnants of the spot all along the outside of the building but they've been covered by giant brick planters :(

Really miss that spot. Fiirst moved here n worked through the night at a grocery store down the road. Got out at 6 or 7 every morning and go to that spot just about everyday to dick around, I wouldn't get messed with that early ever. After some months I started getting pretty good there n planned some moves to do but got lazy, would go somewhere else, and just assumed it would be there forever. I was dead wrong.

Appreciate so much stuff done there but the standouts are a Jason Adams frontside ollie photo (thing was virtually impossible to crack an ollie on) and Templetons noseblunt slide along the top.

Famous spot:
EMB: favorite stuff came outta there. But Kelch would have to be on duty or else.

Local spot:
high school by my mom's. Skated there from 86-2008. They tore out the benches, planters, ledges, stair sets, banks and added "no skating" signs plus video cameras. The principal in my day was totally cool with skating. The current one was anti-skating and was varsity football coach when I went. There is nothing to even skate there now anyway but it will always be my favorite.

that spot was so hard to skate though. I moved away in '99, are they not there at all or is it just wrapped in the iron fencing still?

Still just iron fencing/little guard rail thing around it the last time I checked.
