Mofo

 

If you were around in the mid 70’s to early 80’s and had anything to do with the skate-punk revolution, odds are you knew of this classic character that goes by many names. The Orange Bowl, Bombora, Winchester Skatepark, Campbell Skatepark, Milpitas Skatepark, The Temple Beautiful, Mabuhay Gardens, Deaf Club, Elite Club, Sound of Music, Tool & Die and 10th Street Hall, these are places he called home. Mofo has been part of the Nor Cal scene since day one, he has sung in a few of the best underground bands the Bay Area had to offer, has shot photos of some of the most classic, legendary skaters of all time and has probably slept on more couches in his travels than most humans could bare.

In the early days of Campbell Skatepark he had more patience than any one I knew… holding down his spot in the park to the sound of dozens of kids screamimg “dropping in”. Little did these kids know that the were skating the “Mofo Bowl”, not the Mogul Bowl.

Here are some classic moments in time that this man has captured. Enjoy…
