This isn't a skate-park, but is the mecca of sk8; home and proving ground for the Z-boys. The Dog Bowl, originally known only to the most hardcore DT crew, it was located in Northern Santa Monica - The Dogtown crew had their own pool that they could skate in peace. "Dino's Dog Bowl" was shortened to just "The Dog Bowl." A teenager with terminal cancer asked his father to drain the family pool on their huge estate overlooking The Brentwood Country Club Golf Course. Some of the most famous photographs in skateboarding were shot at the Dog Bowl. Tony Alva is credited with doing the first front side aerials at the pool in the fall of 1977. It was named "The Dog Bowl" because there were dogs always hanging out at the pool. On any given day over the summer of 1977 most of the entire DogTown crew were at the pool. Some of the best skating sessions EVER took place there. Ray Flores and Ray Allen have film shot of some of the sessions that are featured on the DVD, "DogTown and Z-Boys."
