This quick wall in the street area at Glenhaven remided me of some photos of Glen Woodruff from the first issue of Skateboarder when they revived it in the seventies (Vol. 2 No. 1).
The Torrance library we went to when I was in grade school had transitions at the base of the building and I thought this thing might have been there. Looks more like a college campus to me now and a lot of the coverage in Skateboarder was of spots further south.
These Woodruff photos really caught our imagination. We were mostly skating down hills and sidewalks and learning to do handstands. That little transition looked a lot like surfing. That little wall got Glen Woodruff a Who’s Hot! I don’t think I ever saw that guy in the mag again.
I have an image of another section of that Glenhaven tranny on antigravity press. and if you need more shots of the Glenhaven progress, Jesse Bracewell posted some shots over at Skaters for Public Skateparks.
