Mt. Tabor Street Contest

Cal Skate Relics - Mt. Tabor Street Ramp Contest 1985

On this week’s Cal Skate Relics, we rewind to 1985 and one of the many skate contests that found solace in the friendly confines of our finest urban cinder cone, Mt. Tabor. Check out all the mid-80’s action along with some period appropriate Cal Skate contest t-shirts after the turn. Also, don’t forget that every Wednesday, weather permitting, Mt. Tabor is open for your speed run pleasure. Now go get some.

  • Exhibit 5. Probably not a feeble grind. They were to come years later.
    Gotta love that skating pvc coping with copers on your trucks.

  • Exhibits 2 and 3 are me. I’m Geoff Gunderson. I thought I remembered this event as more of a demo than a contest, but it was the first event we did as Rebel Skates team. The Land Cruiser in that background in the background of some of the pics was my dad’s, and he shuttled everyone up to the top for bomb runs all day. That Land Cruiser is parked in front of my house now. Also, I still have that t-shirt from the ’85 Waterfront Park contest. Cheers!! G
