Cannonball: Skating the Recession Pools

Cannonball is a nicely shot mini-doc about the Fresno foreclosure market, and the abandoned swimming pools exploited by area skateboarders, just as in Dogtown during the water shortage crisis.

Once upon a time, Fresno was the California Dream. Own a car. Own a house. Own a pool. Everyone wanted it and the wonderful world of credit made it all possible. But now, with the foreclosure monster running wild, the dream is dry. Thousands of pools are festering in the hot Central Valley sun. For most people this is tragic. But for some, it’s an opportunity.

It’s cool that they haul away their trash, and actually knock and offer to trade yard work for some carving time.

(And this is in the tragic category because the sheeple need to be herded into believing otherwise.)
