The Skateboard Mag has the boys mashing in some more backyard pools.
It’s not very often you find a pool in North Park, much less a Blue Heaven. This gem was discovered by my good bud HEMAN. He hit me and a few other guys up to give him a hand emptying it, but he was so excited he already emptied 200 bucket loads solo.
The first glance.
Then we showed up the next day.. ( HEMAN let us know, this was a full barge and really had no idea what could happen, possibilities were endless ) I saw this plaque, any pool skater knows – this is a sign from the skate gods – transitions below the murky green water were assured.
The boys were already at it.
After pumping out water for about an hour, We got to some real thick water that was pretty much the most deadly sludge I’ve ever seen. With a few more feet to empty.
You find some interesting things when emptying pools.
This was Chris LaRue’s first pool mission.
Truman was killing it the whole time, of course.
Stafford getting down on the pump duty, nice and crusty.
After mass amounts of swet, mud, beers, and hours of dedication. The boys started to shred!
We were lucky to have a few sessions in this epic pool, I’m sure you’ll see coverage soon!
All good things come to a end, now go find yours!
I recently started working for VOX Footwear, we have tons of plans for the future and it feels rad to be apart of a shoe company that actually cares about skateboarding, and that’s all they care about – not the tennis courts or anything else. Check out this monthly edit featuring Danny DiCola, Hooker, Shaw, and more.
Ben is now on the swoosh, fuck the swoosh. But Ben fucking rules, doesn’t give them any creditability in my book.
Here’s some killer footage from Alex Mooney of some D.I.Y. Spots, Backyard Pools, and more featuring Brandon Perelson, Chris Cope, and a bunch of other dudes shredding.
Here’s some killer pool skating from the LA region
RadBalls has a older and rad edit of some shredding at pigeons pool and more.
