Spike, that might have been the Tea Bowls. I'm surprised they were not mentioned in the article. That place was amazing. Here are some photos (not mine):
Brand X Skateboards were another SB company. Remember?
I skated the Bayou from the late 70s to the mid 80s. I can't remember when it was, but the city put a bunch of cement globs on the transitions and flat bottom and it messed the place up big time. I think it was in 1987 or 88.
BTW, Golf-n-Fun was in Santa Barbara (north side), not Goleta. It was behind the Bob's Big Boy at the La Cumbre exit on Hwy 101. Sparks was on Storke next to Dairy Delight. Those were the days...

Mesamike is correct. A close homeboy's best friend bit it bad and hit his head. I think it was 1989 or 1990. He was in the hospital for a few days. My girlfriend at the time and I visited him in the hospital. He had mild amnesia but recovered his memory after a few weeks. I was not aware that his parents threatened to sue.
I'm not sure who had the accident that caused the bowls to be dynamited the first time...
The Flybowl was fun, but nothing compared to T Bowls!
