David Alexander 1977 Frontside Skateworld VA
Meigs Hodge Skateworld VA
Not often we get some cool seventies skate action. I have been meaning to enter Skateworld VA shots along with Dave and Meigs into the archive for sometime. I have gathered a decent amount of pics to make a cool gallery so here it is. Maybe John Egertson and relevant company can chime in and wax poetically on this skate park from VA. A lot of people from SW have been getting in touch via The House of Steam which is always cool!

John Egertson Skate World Alexandria VA 1977
Killer 1977 shots from John Egertson…A skate Park and Star Wars in the theater…good times.
According to John the park was located on Wheeler (really!) Avenue in Alexandria VA. Moguls, a pool and that crazy vert wall.
Anyone remember any of the SkateWorld Team Members: Connor Mulroney (Dermot Mulroney’s brother…Really!) Miles Rolf, Mike and Dave Alexander, Jimmy Treece and Steve Kelleher. If you are out there or know any of these peeps…. get em!!
Pat Clark, Mike “Micro” Mapp, Bruce Adams and Mike Kresky (Powell Peralta) are all known to have skated here….So there have to be more pics!
