MONTHLY BLOW-OUT: Bank to Curb Wall Ditch

photo 2

Personally I believe Austin Mayer found this spot, and Truman was the first to actually skate it. Here’s the third of many more to come “Monthly Blow-out’s” with the story behind the spot.


Spot: This ditch has been a hot spot for the past 6 months, the ironic part is that it was discovered over 3+ years ago. Austin (Mayer) who help me start Typical Culture in the beginning was the the first one to report it. So with that said, we’ll give him credit for finding it. Located in a pretty central part of San Diego city it’s not a easy spot to find, or predict where it is for that matter. Its not easy to skate, you get about a 3-4 foot wide roll-up with whatever length you want to drop-in on the side of the ditch in order to skate the bank to ledge side that you see these photos taken on. Truman Hooker was the first to get a photo here, blasting a Lein Air taken by Dave Swift and featured in The Skateboard Mag ( Also in his CSxFU part ) couldn’t find the photo online though.

Web Trash – Tim Williams

Tim Williams fucking kills this city! He skates all the spots you’ve seen and the spots you would of never seen right in front of you. He’s always thinking outside of the box. Or hell, maybe not thinking at all. That’s just the way Tim works. No predicaments or plans, Just go skate and shred. So check the photos and when you see Tim, Let him know that he kills San Diego.
