What if I had used one of the other photos of @todswank not pushing? I might have had a much different life. Just kidding. Del Mar in 1987.

Yesterday a few lucky people including @tonyhawk had the opportunity to skate a section of the Del Mar Skate Ranch. When I saw the pics, I was stoked! You mean I can maybe ride Del Mar again?? Unfortunately, that won’t happen. From what I hear, it was a one day only thing and demolished today… 👎🏼. So many memories there.. That was the first park I rode. Here’s a couple pics of Tony riding Del Mar some 30 years apart.. #delmarskateranch #skatelife #thankyouskateboarding

@steviecab in one of the first good shots I took in 1980 in the kidney at the Del Mar Skate Ranch. Unless you skated that pool, you don’t even know how gnarly this ollie is on that lead sled.

@staabpirate1 and @tonyhawk came prepared with Del Mar Skate Ranch Staff shirts today. @daveswift01 carves the gnar in the background. We enjoyed one more day of the Del Mar Skate Ranch 28 years after she was buried for what we thought was forever. Thanks @superduperaustin for giving us all one more day of what we missed so much. #tonyhawk #kevinstaab #daveswift @onieder @mikivuckovich #delmarskateranch #dmsrforever #theskateboardmag @theskateboardmag #grantbrittain #skatelegends #skateboarding #thankyouskateboarding by jgrantbrittain http://ift.tt/1HyHozB

I worked at the Del Mar Skate Ranch from 1978 to 1984. In February of 1979, I borrowed my roommate’s Canon and with the most basic instructions shot my first roll of film. I was able to expose the roll of Kodachrome 64 correctly and capture local skater, Kyle Jensen in the Keyhole.
