Yes on D

Some skateboarders rallying support for a skatepark bond measure (Measure D) in Los Gatos, California had a bit of creative inspiration when the fashioned “Yes on D” signs out of broken skateboards and took to the streets to stump. this picture is from the Los Gatos Observer. Other skaters in Los Gatos experienced a little inspiration and possibly perspiration when they went on late night vigilante missions to “liberate” offending “No on D” signs. Unfortunately, someone destroyed a plant on one such mission, branding all skateboarders as “thuggish” and prompting neighbors to expect gangs of vegetation-hating freestylers overrunning the town. Even more unfortunate, some of the vigilantes may have been identified on video surveillance. Still even more unfortunate, the vote ended up going 2-1 against funding the skatepark. Opponents said it was too much money, and that the skateboarders might not use it. There is no silver lining in this cloud, but at least San Jose is only 12 miles away.

    yeah… “only a little drive away,” you do know that the average skateboarder is a 14 year old with no car, right?

  3. If they did get a park, it wouldn’t open until something like 3pm every day. Therefore I’d only be able to skate it during the part of the year when it stays open late enough for me to go after work… although they’d probably close it an hour before it actually gets dark like the other two supervised parks around here, so I’d be lucky to get 30 minutes in. Fuck that place. Those kids can thumb it to scotts valley.
