John's Pool

* Outdoor: 'Crete
* Free
* Trannie
* Rating: More Pool Fools

About as far away from Dog-Town as you can be without crossing Int'l borders, Florida has its own pool scene. In Apr' 01, the SK8parkLIST crew showed up in Jacksonville for a little tour de transition. The 2nd stop on Saturday was John's Pool.

We got the guided tour for this place from Big Jim Stowers and his crew. This is probably *the* session were I became permanently infected w/ the pool rider's addiction... it's a painful game, but somebody's gotta play it.

This pool was pretty fun. The Jax pack has a bunch more pools up their sleeves, and this is one of the smaller ones. The grinds came and went as the afternoon gave up its nasty Florida heat. Old John even poked his head out the door to say "Hi" and flash us a toothless grinner.

Much respect out to the Jacksonville crew. Thanks again to Jim Stowers, Lep Stewart [Truckstop Magazine!], English Joe and Scott the Ripper. For more skating from these guys, check out Frank's Pool.

kicking it on the
steps... Check out "evil"
Lep at the top of the
stairs. Heh heh.

^ You might recognize
Jim Stowers from such
films as "Jacksonville
Jailhouse" and "The Pabst
Blue Ribbon Adventure"...
but seriously, Jim put out
a cool pool film called
Plorida Fools. Look
for that.
