Ahh, good old LaLaLand. Not only the birthplace of modern skateboarding as we know it, but a hub of innovation for four decades running. It's the Silicon Valley of skate cities, where the right factors- perfect weather, urban sprawl, convenient transportation links to the rest of the world- converge to create a skate paradise. More skate progression has come out of LA than anywhere else in the world, and just as Blockbusters stream from Hollywood, and shag-carpeted porn from the San Fernando Valley, the most progressive skateboarding and skate videos come from LA.
Where the stars go to skate!
With a sexy 12 and 16 set taking center stage, nearly
every pro has rolled through Hollywood High on the
road to stardom. Take it down either the set or, if
in the mood to risk impalement, over the fence.
First hit on video by The Gonz in 1991's Video Days,
Wilshire has probably seen more skate carnage than
any other spot in LA's long skate history,
which is saying a lot.
In addition to schooling LA's wealthiest little children,
BHHS features a bunch of perfect rails for your
shredding pleasure. Just remember your
ABD's (Already Been Dones!)
