uh graffiti pits we just talked about them oh i i’m man so i love this spot the spa was so fun this is my backyard for a long time that was great i loved going there like l.a trip i was like i’m we’re going there right i got the wraps the like i don’t know if they were real leather but they were like not patent leather oh yeah shiny mm-hmm oh yeah the white leather yeah the bottom was white right yeah yeah that’s those and then and then the corduroy joints yeah i was talking to someone because i got scared one time but uh og dude around here was saying that like they had like a lot of um concerts there back in the day um i bet that was before like before people started before my time yeah for sure yeah i remember skating that spot and just and people thinking that it was rugged and it did have like a it had like a scary thing to it as far as like i’m out of town so i’m thinking like la gangsters and all that but it’s like the pits right so you go into this like closed off area that you can see there’s no one there and i’m at the beach right there’s no one there so it’s like sometimes you there’ll be a bum in the corner sometimes whatever people walk through and take off some photos traffic like that right and you could see like i escaped by like a little cut like yeah right here you know that was a bathroom and then like if you kept going straight you made a right and it was like another one and it was kind of like yeah like look right here like real like right yeah yeah yeah could be chilling i don’t know you know but that was the allure of it that was a fun part of it even it smelled like and piss you’re still you you’re you’re in your own world you’re down there for me and you adapt to that totally from coming from the city and skating like san francisco like i was like yep yeah it’s not good like so it was never kicked out of there right no no no no never got kicked out cops would come and for some you know home or something there’s something else and you would always be scared please i’ve never i’ve never seen drama there i’ve never seen any like fights or problems nothing you know it was below ground right right i don’t remember okay remember rick kasich when we shot the uh big brother we did a big brother uh that cover oh however you asked me he goes dude let’s uh want a crooked grind like this bench whatever and i said let’s go to venice and yeah it’s like all right yeah and when i remember we were there he was nervous yeah and i was like what do what like it’s cool i’m not even from this place like i’m chilling like well when i first started going there you know yeah i like bro like you’re good bro it was it was some skaters it was kind of like the sun was setting and you had to leave because a lot of gangsters and yeah it became you know at night it was a whole different scene yeah different hangout right so it’s kind of like when i was when i first started going there was like okay it’s getting dark we let’s let’s head out and film this oh yeah i want to say tim darling i could see that i mean he’s filming from the front which is yeah kind of a tim guys switch pop chef at crooks and they went out solo and got that on and then tim couldn’t keep a secret and told all of us yes were you skating with anyone else that day yeah that i i’m i guarantee look i’m sorry joey there’s that’s who was that there’s joey cereal and eric costan i believe let’s see that’s joey cereal right there with the beanie that looks like costume stamps oh wow yeah yeah the jeep cherokee yeah exactly remember we got in the car accident were you in the car i don’t think it was man he almost macked on the girls the girl said and he pulled over and the girls got out it was just like oh my god like the air i remember like eric’s like hey you have insurance yeah the cherokee those sheep shoes right there sheep those are good okay no those shoes are if those shoes could talk so there i am with them don gave me those i was on like i was on like soul tech i wasn’t on like you couldn’t get anything you got whatever you got like did you get a box of like any sheep yes yes john would just be like your own soul tech he even for a minute during this time i would get a check from soul tech so i wasn’t on anyone okay but he invest he would show me yo i’ve messed with you okay that’s dope i didn’t know what that was it was dope but at the time confusing it’s confusing for me because i’m like i’m almost good enough right what am i doing what shoe which shoes am i wearing out of these box like so during that time which is all this fun motivated stuff so thanks thank you don for that because that’s got me on here doing that so i’m wearing these cheap shoes and they were real cool and then um i remember i was with keenan and guy and everyone we were staying at um we’re staying at eric’s house and keenan said let me can i have those shoes and i said yeah and i gave him the keenan keenan wore him and he switched i want to say switch back so when he heal flips the table in him oh wow but he has some footage in those sheep shoes and then guy the same pair because thinking i have those and goes yeah and i think guys wearing them he’s wearing the lightest shorts yeah right here lockwood he does the lockwood line yeah so don brown it went from don brown to me to keenan milton to guide my wife wow same pair of shoes i don’t remember people like sharing shoes too much back then either it was i think don gave me like i think i didn’t like those because they were like flat like the vans and i was used to like how eddies were kind of like bulkier so those are vulcanized right yeah those were vulcanized so i remember being like i’m not too into these and guy was skating those low little vans gotcha and so keenan if you trip keenan also has my i gave him a pair of my etnies he has those black in these two those are for me we skipped usc because don yeah john was sending constant box and i’m staying at constant so he’s like here’s york’s box and then keenan was staying there and then i’m like yeah like that’s just how we went wow it was easy like that’s amazing yeah those shoes actually i saw some miles yeah yeah yeah and some tricks i wonder where they are now legendary where could they be probably in some landfill should be in a museum dude oh man but back then you’re not thinking about not at all but then it’s so funny just skating i tripped how you do the front crook to fakie on that cause that thing was so round that like i could see i see i was it wasn’t like it was crazy back then maybe it wasn’t when i got there so if you notice i do all my like slider more stuff on the sharper yeah it’s does it work it was like it was like the embarcadero grinded in brown marbles i think you’re right though kelly it did get round after a while but this is early on yeah it’s right way early on but they they got round for sure what was cool is i don’t think too many people like this spot wasn’t popular yet you’re right it wasn’t handled yeah it wasn’t like you go there and then you kind of do the lines that people do there like it’s kind of like we just went yeah because like when chef is there he’s ollying up the table to the other table but also there was the hubba in back too so like a lot of people would just go straight to that hubbub as well with the crack in the hole at the bottom of it yeah yeah they’ll boil down i’m trying to think there wasn’t a lot of hipper waiting to happen seriously around this time yeah there was no one skating this spot beforehand not really yeah i didn’t see too much if i did it was like random 4-1-1 clips yeah and it would be like one trick yeah like that could have been like your love park right you know do you how crazy when said ground sucked oh did it the ground was like rough cement like you got falling there sucked because you got dirty and cut yeah that was one of those it was one of those abrasive ground is it kind of like the ground that’s out um at the old park now i guess you would say you know it’s like kind of gritty almost i got brushed but it’s more brushed though i think notice there’s not a lot of flat ground going on yeah in that place except for over that little gap over the little circle the little circle gap yeah yeah like you know what i mean besides that yeah but there wasn’t really an opportunity to really get flat ground you know if it was like maybe a flat ground before the ledge or something but it it’s a small area it wasn’t like this huge i mean on video maybe it looks a little big but it’s small no i mean this is what what two pushes corner boom two pushes to that ledge like here it is yeah like then there’s weird things like this wall that’s i don’t know if you look to the right of the shot this wall right there boom that yeah this little graffiti wall a little skinny pastel oh that thing kind of sucks to fall into if you like miss and it’s like right there the beauty there’s little mine things in little mine line yeah like i said it was it’s a small little zone for those ledges right there yeah like if i stuck right there and just shot out into that into that wall dude the beautiful thing about that that ledge in particular was the wall i love the wall because you could try stuff and if you slipped out you could just say yeah you just hit the wall it was really close but i’m talking about that one no no i don’t know what you’re saying right it’s like a little but i i feel like a little passageway like i learned a lot of tricks and what was cool is all the graffiti made it slippery it wasn’t really waxed right it was like always tagged so it had like glossy paint always on it and it grinded it was a it was a feel good grind yeah it was like rugged and that cone thing is what’s sticking out of of it right now right yeah that wall that he’s talking about is sticking out but all in all this this spot was short-lived it didn’t really get like no you know it might seem a long time dude we probably skated that for like maybe no more than two years i was gonna i was gonna say two three years yeah yeah and then that got filled with saying well they tore down most of the walls around it and left all those things there so maybe that ledge on the wall is gone maybe this ledge is gone yeah but maybe the other ledges are this ledge is still there maybe because on the top on the top part of that people we’ve just like they used to set up ramps up there yeah and skate and skate the walls exactly right yeah you know and do like gnarly wall guys and that wasn’t that the walls and stuff and yeah like thrashing stuff like that’s why i was like so like that was probably we’re doing our threat that was probably when they were having concerts down there right but let musca all leave the the roof right there and the little uh roof sad tail slid that high leg yeah that was insane sad man so many good times i love sitting here reminiscing about these spots uh those are like little fire pits right i don’t know what they were what were these little circle things right yeah these little things right there those are like little b i don’t know why they write little fire pits and section them off like that i don’t know either it’s weird maybe just sitting i don’t know who knows yeah those are weird someone someone explained monica historian will tell us but yeah him graffiti led graffiti pit yeah that place was fun all of the tables totally wow dude eric too yeah yeah and i think it didn’t even make the cut yeah it was in a four-in-one switch dance section wow yeah fun times back there yeah i love it switch i i don’t do that anymore no not down for this you look good doing it though man yeah that was a guy guy put me on to pushing when you used to skate like something with like one push and have to hit it like the switch you have to like step hella times before you get set up where like a regular push your foot’s already there right right position go you know not that i’m in that position a lot but you know when i would see guy like do stuff and i’ll be like wow look how we like we gotta watch technique you gotta watch just the little stuff sometimes where is that like button right is it right here or right here just a little scroll down the bottom it’s it’s subscribing over to yeah it’s on your right no on your left hey yeah hit that button right there right there right there the like button’s kind of like in the in the middle there it’s like we’re kind of oh it’s like right here kind of like right there subscribes like over to the left right over there all right
