Classic New Spot!

Good ol' "New Spot" was the inspired, original local nickname of the location that later blossomed in terms of worldwide popularity under the other alias of "Pier 7", located barely a two-minute skate away from a then declining Embarcadero.

From then on, the most intense skate sessions would ensue at that place, gathering a community of die-hard locals taking their self-assigned duty to push the limits of tech and style simultaneously very seriously. Whoever got in the way of said craft mid-line would get his board thrown into the sea (Embarcadero wasn't far, remember), but the iconic skateboarding that went down at that spot in that era really is what the most memorable should be.

TransWorld SKATEboarding just dropped this recap of raw files featuring all the Kings of (that small chunk of) SF (among others): Henry Sanchez (of course), Karl Watson, Marcus and Lavar McBride, Rob Welsh, Mike York, JB Gillet, Pat Washington, Andy Honen, John Igei, Shamil Randle, Brad Johnson, Stevie Williams, Spencer Fujimoto... Most of the OG's are present and represent, under the form of slick, unaltered raw VX clips filmed and compiled by Victor Neyra, whose Instagram account you should follow!
