66 6th St Ching 50 750pxWith his earbuds in, Gary couldn’t tell how loud he was calling out the skate infractions. SF residents can still hear an echoing, “You already did that!”

    This Old Ledge: Grant's Tomb
    Who’s buried at Grant’s Tomb? Not just a former president and his wife (and dog). A more recent and gnarly history lives at this Upper West Side spot, highlighted by Ted Barrow and the rippers who tested the beveled blocks at this exalted NYC staple.

    Once the decision is made, the only thing left is one big ol’ bash in The City to cap the year off right. Karl Watson came through for the official handoff along with a host of A-listers from Primitive, adidas and our home turf. Couldn’t get in the door? Catch it all here.

    This Old Ledge: Pier 7
    For over 25 years, Pier 7 has been at the center of technical skating. It’s not just where you are, but who you’re with and how you roll. That code of conduct was forged in the ’90s along San Francisco's waterfront.

    This Old Ledge: Bay Blocks
    Though “The Ribbon” was a doomed project for city government, the stretch of concrete blocks along the Embarcadero further cemented San Francisco’s mecca status in the ’90s and beyond.

    This Old Ledge: Hubba Hideout
    It’s not just what they did, but where they did it, and what they named it. Hubba Hideout cemented the importance of location more than any other spot. In episode 2, Ted shifts from EMB to the most famous ledge in the history of skateboarding.
