El Toro – the famed monster set – is gone. But what will replace it and what cultural rights to it do skateboarders have? 

 

 

Sample:

“Instagram, Twitter, and the Slap forum are all currently debating the renovation and remodelling of the famous set of 20 steps at El Toro high school in Lake Forrest, California. These steps have become an iconic spot for skateboarders and any new trick performed at the steps is hotly debated.

My fascination with the work currently taking place at the steps is that it has been performed without any knowledge or consultation with skateboarders. This is of course school property, it is by no means a public space which skateboarders have colonised in the same way that they have at the Undercroft in London’s Southbank, Burnside in Portland, or Malmö’s TBS. Yet, El Toro is an established part of skateboarding cultural heritage.”
