Sunsets & Seahorses
Every once in a while you get one of those pools that is so epic you just can't let it go:
"Sunsets" was in the neighborhood I grew up in - many years later I found it in foreclosure and rode it several times before it was renovated/repurposed - priceless indeed was the look on the faces of the Hispanic family who finally captured a piece of the American Dream and showed up on "move in" day,only to find a couple of gringos getting their own version of the "American Dream" on in their pool:
Shock, suprise, and anger finally turned into confusion - eventually they just asked us to move our car cuz' it was blocking the driveway....we congratulated them on their new homeowner status and disappeared down the road to El Torito for some cocktails....we returned a couple weeks later and were given permission to skate one more time before paranoia kicked in....I still think about this pool - even if I never get to ride it again, it is forever immortalized in this new graphic:
Now available in 8.25s and 8.5s only - other specs are: 32.75"L, 14.5" WB, 7.25"N, 6.875"T - get some....$50 bucks including grip tape and free shipping anywhere in the U.S. - get with the PayPal:
