Another installment of That Place, That Time, This time coming to you from the U.K. and Dean Tyrell. These three pics date from 1977, ’78 and ’79. Dean is the same guy that sent in the shots of the crazy skateable terrain in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.
Dean Tyrell 1977.
The poolshot (on an 8 x 30 2nd generation Alva, the slightly fatter , rounder one) was at Hembsy Beachcomber skatepark, in a coastal town near Gt Yarmouth in Norfolk, I think in early summer 78 . It was one of those pools that was built by the same company that sprang up in The Rom, Guildford, Gillingham, Harrow etc..
Dean Tyrell 1978 – Solid Surf? (No: Cambridge skatepark)
That halfpipe was just 8ft wide, god knows how high, maybe 12 ft, with about 2ft of vert. sketchy but it made a man out of me!!!
