I thought Kevin's Pier 7 part fit the mood I associate with the spot. He's been living in SF for long enough to have acquired local status, hasn't he? His other parts are SF heavy, I think.

Resurrecting old spots is a very big grey area. There's probably no need to bring an iconic spot back from the dead. I personally would be super stoked if they recreated the old hip at the one city park near me that is long since gone. It doesn't have to be Skatelite and metal, just the same size, which was mellow and very wide. It was the only hip I ever felt really good skating.

I forgot about the Cons video. I'll have to check that out. I remember reading the interview with Kaue Cossa.

I am of the same opinion that only Rodney can do darkslides.
