Wanted to do another classic spot for post #800 and I honestly can't think of a more landmark place than San Francisco's Fort Miley. While it may not always get top billing on the marquee, I don't know of any other spot with as much longevity for being one of skateboarding's premiere proving grounds. Almost like a rite of passage, heads have come to the Fort from all over in order to try and put something down for the history books. From TG to Booze N Titz, Miley has survived in the face of skateboarding's progression for decades with a deceptively-simple layout that remains completely up for interpretation.
Alright party people... in the past when dealing with special posts like this, I've often tried to give a roll call of thank yous to everyone that has gone out of their way in order to help support the Chrome Ball Incident. But given the generous nature of so many that I have come in contact with over the years, to do so at this juncture would be quite an undertaking... ultimately yielding a laughably incomplete attempt, despite my best efforts. So I just want to sincerely thank anyone out there that has helped me out or dug CBI in some form or fashion.
Skateboarding is the best thing that ever happened to me and Chrome Ball and the opportunities it has given me is the ultimate testament to that. I started this site as a way to give back to skateboarding but my debt only continues to grow.
(Love you, Peel)
