El Paso Skateparks – Then And Now
El Paso has tons of skate parks these days. Back in the day though, it seems there was only one...
I remember as the 2000's began, skateparks weren't so common. Now, however, they're everywhere. Going back a bit, skaters had to be a bit more ingenious. Empty swimming pools, homemade ramps, stairwells, etc; they made their own fun.
Lords of Dogtown, the movie and the documentary, both give a really good look at those early days of skateboarding and it's culture. This old video I found shows how El Paso skaters rolled, (pun very much intended), back in those days.
