3. Lockwood – Los Angeles, California
Lockwood footage introduced those of us who live outside of Los Angeles to mini picnic tables and the vast skate potential they hold. It also showed us how much you could accomplish with a single bank and bench. Keenan Milton’s switch flip over a table from flat is an indisputable classic, but even today, Guy Mariano’s backside 180 nosegrind to switch laser flip out offers proof of the progression the school has encouraged—and how amazing small plastic benches are to skate.
