Skate spots, like everything else in this world, come and go. Some are around for years and some are around for a day. A lot of times, the most unique and amazing spots are the ones that are temporary: the spots made by someone’s foolish mistake of backing their car into a pole, or randomly putting a piece of wood against a wall.
This spot was only around for a little while. I went here two days in a row. The first day was hassle-free, but the second day was a bust. This thing was like a big saucer that, as far as I can tell, was meant to be the cap on some sort of underground pipe/tunnel situation. It was super dirty, rusty and had no flatbottom. It took a little getting used to, but Cameron Starke banged out a F/S rock in no time. Truthfully, harder tricks went down, but there’s something classic about a F/S rock that makes for a good photo.
