Malibu's Most Wanted
Lance, tipping over into the channel PH: RUNAWAY
As Jamie Kennedy would say; "Don't Be Hatin'". The simple fact is that location, climate, inspiration, (and cash) have resulted in SoCal having more private pools per capita than anywhere in the world - it just is what it is. Even so, within the relatively rareified air of private pool properties there exists a pecking order. Situated somewhere between the Etnies pool and yet another private pool, there was rumoured to be a new candidate for the #1 spot; a near-perfect replica of Skate City's clover pool. The other day I got the text I had been waiting for; "Going out to Malibu - meet me there".....I called Big Al, fired up the '83 Veggie MBZ and headed for the coast.....
You ever heard that saying, "If it's too good to be true, it probably is?" Don't believe it. Somewhere between patience, perseverance, hard work, great timing, and a pinch of good luck there lies the promised land, and it looks a lot like this:
We skated late into the day, enjoying the killer concrete, good friends, and gracious hospitality of our host, Angelo.

Big Al aired the channel, drank a "Fresca" courtesy of Angelo, and went out to the car for a smoke. On the way back home he told me it was the best day of his life.
File this one under: Living The (California) Dream....
