The Beach Burrito and Pistonhead bowl is now finished, and the restaurant and bar is open. The service, food and vibes are awesome, drop in for a visit.
There was quite a while there where the bowl was finished, but due to some bureaucracy they couldn’t pick up tools to finish the restaurant. RJ Barbaro had a key and discretionary powers to have a few sneaky closed door sessions. I was fortunate to attend a few. I only got my camera out at one due to gear issues and wanting to roll myself.
It’s an intimidating bowl, super gnarly. The Team Pain crew have poured a beast fitting of their name. Some serious shredders struggled to drop in, and people got properly worked. There has been some whining from skaters thinking they are entitled to have a roll and critical of the owners selective policy. When you see the thing you will understand why. It’s a business, and a private pool. The owners shouldn’t be responsible for scraping out overconfident punters from the bottom of the bowl.
All I can say is I am grateful to have had the opportunity for these closed door sessions. The vibe was rad and the crew stepped up to the plate and got some. No one walked away without copping a hiding! Honorable mention to Nick “War Machine” Bright who takes care of business in this thing.
Everyone I have met and dealt with that is connected to the business is rad. I wish them well with their venture. If the opening is anything to go by I reckon it will go off.
