These photos are from The Unofficial Sk8park Tour we did back in the summer of 2009 here in the greater Los Angeles and Orange County areas. We had a blast checking out all the new skateboard parks at the time and generally getting baked in the hot summer sun all for the sake of fun. We came across a couple backyard pools, a steep rectangle at a vacant house and a right hand kidney at someone’s home that had carve-able shallow stairs. In the end we hit more than 25 skate parks over a series of weeks, often riding 3-5 a day. It was a challenge to document even with 3 or 4 photographers because it was more about having fun and skating as opposed to shooting photos and video.
Plans for the Unofficial Sk8park Tour 2012 are being kicked around since there are new skate parks to be ridden. More than a few. Looking forward to another skateboarding adventure! Stay tuned.

The Spitfire pool, an insane right hand kidney I only got to ride half of (the shallow half). Got there too late, it was already filled with dirt to just under the tiles in the deep end. I was able to rig a shallow stair session out of scaffolding and somehow made it and that footage is around somewhere. Wish I had got to ride the whole thing, its looks so fun!
