The Pipeline Skatepark was founded by the Hoffman family in 1977 and was the first vertical skateboard park ever built. The park consisted of a long ditch with a hip which led into a 15' bowl, a fullpipe with 12' bowl, 4 back pools of varying size, the massive combi bowl and a freestyle area. Also known as Badlands, the Pipeline helped shape countless skate legends including Steve Alba, Micke Alba, Chris Robison, Lester Kasai, Chris Miller and Rick Demontrond to name a few. Unfortunately the Pipeline was demolished in 1989 due to insurance reasons and dwindling participation.
