The Turf

Matt Swan at the Turf In Milwaukee

I have to place this picture sometime between 1989 and 1991. This is Matt Swan in the capsule at The Turf in Milwaukee Wisconsin. In the late 70’s early 80’s this park was called Surf and Turf. Pocket Pistols made a deck with the old logo on it, although it’s unclear if they ever actually went into production. The Turf was Mark Hubbard’s favorite skate park. This guy worked there. I wonder if it’s the same Time Door as this old zine?

Update: It is the same guy. Time Door lives on.

Let’s see, what else? The Turf has appeared in at least one Santa Cruz video. At present, there seems to be no site or page dedicated to the Turf. I only have a few pictures, but if I get enough contributions I’ll gladly do a feature on it.


  1. I made a small page for the Turf…

    Betten (Swervo) went out there with Swim.

  2. And there you have it! I can see that the Turf also appeared in a Gullwing(?) video. I must have missed your page in my Google search. Not much turns up.
