Lester Kasai Pipe Pasting ASPO Whittier Skate City

Lester Kasai Pipe Pasting at Whittier Skate City

Unsponsored 13 year old me pipe pasting at the ASPO (Association of Skatepark Owners) contest at Skate City Skatepark in 1980.

To win you had to paste a sticker the highest in the full pipe in your age division.

Interesting and cool… the bottom half of this full pipe was concrete while to top half was metal.

We had to wear competitor bib numbers… I think there were 200 skaters entered at that contest. It was a long day as we also had to compete in the clover bowl that day.

I’m so grateful that I still skate with the friends I made at those ASPO contests some 44 years ago.
