Did Tony Hawk spend Thanksgiving at the Soma West Skate Park?

3D City: Ride Shares

3D City is a year long stereoscopic photography project by Doctor Popular

Walking is for suckers. These folks know how to get around the neighborhood in style! Which reminds me, someday I’m-a get an exclusive 3D City photo shot with Segway-Poodle-Guy (Rocco and John, I believe). All shots taken in the Mission on my little Lumix 3D1.


Valencia Skitch


There’s a video, but you’re gonna have to go over to tumblr to see it.

16th st. BART thrashin’

Hey 16th St. BART: if you don’t want people skateboarding on your site, don’t build a bitchin’ skate park there.

Also see exhibit A.

Dirty Mission

Ever wonder what the Mission looked like before “all those CCA taggers and fixie kooks” arrived?  Well, MM reader Eric Shea was kind enough to pass along this video, which he got from his buddy Joe Bay, who presumably got it from creator Patrick Gleason.

Check it out for some neat High8 footage of skating through the Mission in 1994 (around the same time that Fugazi would routinely play shows in Dolores Park).

Wish I Could Kickflip Home from Work

Ran into these little guys on the Valencia leg of my commute home this evening.  Gotta say, the kids around here are getting cooler by the week!  Good to see they still stop at red lights though.

Sk8 or MUNI!

So because ‘sk8 or die’ is basically my motto and Muni is basically my municipal transit of choice, I’m really into this deck:

I’d tailslide the shit out of that thing, then stalefishgrab it and top it all off with a motherfucking sausage grind.

This website rules, btw. Read more about the actual board on Muni Diaries.

I’ll be done with this joke soon, guys, I promise.

Telephone Pole Skateboards from Hot Lunch

Reader Heather M. sends us a hot tip about hot lunch:

“you’ve seen the ‘wooden flyers’ that the guys from hot lunch are putting up around the neighborhood?”


Turns out that hot lunch is putting up skateboards all over the Mission advertising a show on Oct. 10th at El Rio.  Best of all, a skeleton is flipping me off.  Classy.
