Title: Hooker Valley DIY Spot
Post by: krusher on July 23, 2011, 10:25:04 PM
Hooker Valley is the name I gave the spot, everyone is stoked on it, but I'm not the foreman on the job so I don't know if it will stick.

It's a hidden secret DIY spot and it might be fun...

(it's only a secret spot if you have never skated in the city of San Diego, but every skate rat here knows exactly where it is).

YEAH YEAH!

I guess the spot is being built for a shop contest. That's why they don't care if the shit is shitty. For some reason everyone thinks that the spot is gonna get torn down by the city, even though there are spots that have been i that ditch for YEARS! Our city is too broke to care about skaters in a ditch, plus WSVT has gone so well no one gives a shit.

They filmed a how to for the spot but it's kinda a how not to.

It's pretty rad how people with no know how can build a epic spot in 3 days. I'm pretty proud of them.

It just goes to show that anyone with just desire alone can turn any unused space into a skater's paradise

I wasn't there for day one of this build and I wasn't too stoked on it on day two but it is still there... so this is a testament for all of you Fuckers in skateboard land that you can build spots that you want to skate, with no know how and only the knowledge that you've learned from the internet, plus with almost no budget

so get out there and make something happen...
