"Ah, Venice!" Most of the time, when people talk about the sights and wonders of Venice, their thoughts will most likely turn to gondolas and water-filled canals walled in by gothic and Italianate architecture. I think of that too, of course, but I also think of another Venice filled with different kinds of sights and wonders; namely, Venice, California -- Dogtown.
Here is a great historical grouping of Venice skate legends posted recently on the Facebook page of another place of legend in the skate world, the Venice Originals Skateboard Shop.
As the caption on the photo notes, it shows a grouping of four Venice legends; Jesse Martinze, Natas Kaupas, Cesario "Block" Montano, and Jay Adams. "Ah, Venice" indeed!
