The Blender photo was at a mall in Orlando, FL. The transitions aren't there anymore. Julien Stranger had some great footage there in the old Underworld Element video "Skypager."

If this is the one in FL. I skated it years ago. But I always heard about one in Louisiana that was just like it. I can't remember half the places I've been or skated anymore.

Ahh shit I left a comment about the Orlando banks in the wrong section. Yeah this spot ruled but the longest I got to skate it was like 20 minutes. It was an instant kick out spot. Shannon May did huge ollie's to fakie here.

Way late on this but Fashion Square Mall Tranny walls was such a sick spot back in the day. J. Strangers backside ollie over the doors was so sick in Sky pager. Also Fraziers pivot to fakie photo on the free standing tranny wall was the gnarliest thing ever done there. Now they have planters all around the base of the walls. Pretty, pretty lame.....

Yeah that was totally Orlando Fashion Square Mall in Orlando Florida in the 80's. I used to go skate it on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day as that was the only time that the cops wouldn't bust you. Sad that they tore that wall down. But they were tired of the skaters. It was by far an insane spot. There is another great picture of Neil Blender going even higher on that wall frontside wallride style from the 80's somewhere.

Wow what a throw back spot! I am in my 40's and we use to skate OFSM just about every other day. Yeh it was a kick out spot but we kept them busy. And the free standing walls in the back were def insane! I still go by there 20 years later and think back to days of the crew and I... but as they said...they built planters around the walls now. Sad face.
