Jealous of all your recent discoveries I did some recon today and dug up a couple of pissweak haunt contenders.
First up the former premises of KFC in Melbourne Rd. I saw this one getting heavily sessioned the other day (note the grinds on the rail).
I had a quick skate and spent some time perfecting my reverse switch nollie revert. Some local kid tried to tell me I was doing a 180 with a tail scrape. Far out man, I can’t keep up with all this new terminology so I left to do some backhand turns on the curvy walls at Newport.
Next is the recently excavated super bowl. A bit like Belco without the rollin. It’s a 70s pool skaters dream with only one inch of transistion (obscured in the pic) and 21 feet of vert.
This old classic has many old school characteristics like the exposed brickwork and the Mexican hat in the middle. The is even a fun box that gets in the way of the best carve lines. WAAAAY ahead of it’s time this old gem. Unfortunately it’s a bust and requires a lot of cleanup.
