Berkeley Hills Dartmouth Pool – 06/1995
I present to you the Dartmouth Pool. Circa 1995 after the Oakland hills fire my surf and skate buddies and I sleuthed out our own pool. This was before skateparks so the only place to learn to bowl ride was a backyard quarter pipe, drainage ditches like the infamous Gateway or places like tennis courts with little banks. Using our years of surfing experience we actually learned how to bowl ride here. Both sports share the same rush and I have been in love with carving the water or cement wave ever since!

New Faces of the Old School
Old school skaters in their forties and fifties are resurfacing at skateparks all up and down the west coast. They are not only making a comeback but are educating the kids on a range of things such as what it takes to keep skating forever and how to frickin' carve the bowl.
