Salton Sea... North Shore Yacht Club w/ swimming pool

north shore yacht club invites you to skate their pool.... poolside waitresses not available........ we did a little sweeping, scooped out some pool scum and..........
ta-da..........readjust drop-in ramp............ it`s so different riding these old pools, i`m spoiled in the new skatepark/playgrounds, transitions are so much smoother. very tight bowl and four feet of vert........ i`m eventually going to kill myself and no one will be there to help but my poor son crying in the middle of the desert with me laying in a puddle of blood oozing out of me at the bottom of a pool...... that`s not a pretty picture or seem very responsible. hey, what doesn`t kill the kid will make him stronger......





they must have just finished filming some movie here cause all the graffiti and bird-shit was cleaned up everywhere and all the entrances into the club where opened up. (normally this place is boarded up pretty tight)



Playgound from hell.... that slide is about ten feet tall and that pole to slide down into the submarine doesn`t let you slide to far,,,, time is trying to give it a slow burial........

Pool's gone now and they remodeled this place. It's a museum and visitor's center now. Some of my favorite pictures were taken here. Here's what it looks like now... http://saltonseamuseum.org/mod_photos.html
