RIP - 1978-1981 Big "O" housed one of the most famous pools in skateboarding history -- the capsule -- that saw skateboarding airs first hit the 6' barrier by Dave Andrecht in one of the gnarliest skate contests ever seen ('80 Hester Series). It also included a clover pool and small keyhole along with an array of great snake runs and small bowls. Coming out of nowhere were two identical 3/4 pipes that laid right next to each other. Big "O" locals included "Master of Disaster" Duane Peters, Carabeth Burnside, Ray "Bones" Rodriguez and Bob Serafin. - Nash

I skated the Big-O daily with my mom Gale Webb, I remember all the rad contests and great friends I had there. The Hi-Ball courts in the back corner were a blast too.

I had some of my best times here! I saw Andrecht and still have one of his Sims boards. I was on the Riptide skateboard team also.
