Before it opened tile man Dave

David Gardner has been an active and dedicated skateboarder and surfer, up and down the coast of California, but mostly here in Santa Cruz for nearly 30 years. Dave proposes to stamp concrete textures (in the form of waves and/or faces) around the lip of the two skate bowls. Along with adding dynamic colors and forms to the surface of the park, this proposal also serves functional and aesthetic needs of the skaters, as it provides visual and auditory cues to their movements without compromising the skating texture of the bowls. Feb. 3, 2007 He is seen here making sure the tiles have just the right sound before staining them. One of the best reasons to do a public art project at a skatepark!
