So Jason from WelcomeSkateboards.com stopped by and dropped off their latest creation which came beautifully screened on a high quality form fitting t shirt. The graphic is nothing short of pure genius as its Jason Lee as David Bowie, a nice play on one of Jason Lee’s board graphics from yesteryear. I highly suggest supporting this company, buy a shirt, buy a board, add Nolan as a friend on Facebook, do what you gotta do because they are rad and doing it for the right reasons.
Well after some careful work, the old website stuff like photos and what not has reemerged. Ill try to put most of it back up in the next week or two in-case you have been missing it. These photos are from a nice day when Carter and Brian from JFA came down to skate the San Clemente egg (now a dirt yard). It was odd that this eerie fog bank rolled in and kept the pool damp and it wouldn’t dry until the end of the session. Everyone got some though.
San Juan Capistrano held it’s first basic design forum for the future skate-park and it seems pretty positive, but just not very quick to be built. There is a grant the city is applying for in fall to fund the skate-park and the community garden project. There is also some added fun with the fact that there is empty farm land adjacent to the current community garden that is zoned for farming and can be the site of a new community garden and then the skate-park would go where the old garden is.So basically the old garden needs to be relocated before the skate-park has hopes of being built. The area is pretty large for the skate-park and there is already lights and a restroom so all funds can go into building it. Skaters that attended wanted things like a snake run to street plaza stuff and were liking the idea of a remake of the SJC Keyhole pool with a more skate-able shallow end. Ideas to make it have design characteristics like the mission San Juan were also brought up. I suggested we take one of the old tractors roting in the field and add tranny all over it to make it skate-able and even the city people were psyched on the idea. Its probably a few years out or less, but at least its on the radar and it should be pretty good compared to all the local parks that showcase the fine skills of purkiss rose. Next meeting is January 28 at 6pm at the community center.
Charlie’s Bowl was a nice pool up in the L.A. area named after the kid who lived there. When he didn’t do drugs and stayed out of trouble, the pool was a go, but when he was being a wild child, the sessions became a distant memory. You know a pool is good when the like of T.A. and Lance are showing up for sessions.
It will if you get off your lazy asses and come down to the design meeting for the future skatepark in San Juan Capistrano, Ca. I know a ton of razor kids will be there wanting the best things for razoring so if you skate and have a brain, be there so we can have an Oregon quality park in south county besides the piles of mission viejo, san clemente, and laguna hills. If enough people show up that want the San Juan Keyhole rebuilt as close to the original as possible, the City is open to the idea so show up please!
