Previous / Next Product


The park was built in ’78 and quickly became the gathering point for skaters throughout the San Diego County area, including many influential skaters that would go on to be well-known pros. The park featured a bunch of terrain options that included the keyhole pool, kidney “Kona” pool, egg bowl thirteen footer, square pool, halfpipe, big reservoir, baby snake run, giant banked slalom, and the freestyle reservoir. Additional amenities included an arcade, pro shop, mini-golf, and several hi-ball trampoline setups. While the park was hugely popular, nationally known, and played host to countless events, it was far from the best skatepark around, which by most accounts, is attributed to the aforementioned lowest bidding contractors that made the majority of the runs less than ideal, but rideable nonetheless. Some say the demise of Del Mar Skateboard Ranch was due to insurance problems and while those were an ongoing issue, that wasn’t the cause of the closure, Quite simply, the owner of the property the park sat on sold an adjacent parcel to a hotel developer and said developer wasn’t keen on having a bunch of skaters next door, so in 1987, the park was demolished.


Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on premium Gildan 5000B tees, one of the best-wearing kid’s t-shirts available today, via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods. In short, this youth pro weight tee is perfect for every kid who wants a comfortable shirt to play, relax, or romp around in and our durable, high-quality prints will survive many adventures.

Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
