The Evolution of the Skate Spot | “… the mid-to-late 2010s could be “anything goes” in regards to spot selection.”
Skateboard spot trends come and go. According to Theoris Of Atlantis right now we are in the “anything goes” period for spot selection. This means the resurgence of previously unfilmable tricks. What did the past hold? How about the near future? T.O.A dove in.
The skate spot is the unsung hero of skateboarding, with a history as rich and diverse as that of skateboarding itself (the two, in fact, are often intertwined with one another). But what does the concept of a skate spot entail? And how did the skate spot as we know it come to exist? We here at Theories of Atlantis, ever the vigilant truthseekers, have tracked down and compiled the key figures and moments that played a role in shaping the modern day skate spot. As always, this is highly contentious and up for debate.
