This is the coolest video I have seen in a long time. Not stoked on the news that they are going to build a new park over top of The Dish though.

    So rad. Everyone looks SO young. Check out the Sick Boys video that was a few years later but had a lot of the same guys in it if you haven’t. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzx5Ji3Yyas

    Here’s another classic from MTV in the mid-80’s with Raw Power, the Dickies and GBH. There’s footage of Gonz skating (21 min mark) scattered throughout and a scene of him getting manhandled on top of the crowd. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x0ord3bbQaU

    My friends and I drove to the dish back in 89. Once we got there and took a look around, we were scared to get out of the car. The place was sooo sketchy. Back to the east bay!

    I am surprised that the dish doesn’t get coverage these days. I know it’s nothing like a modern skatepark but I’m sure there are kids who show up there and throw down.
