Skate City Skatepark in Whittier, Calif., was Lucero's home park. Street skating as we know it was invented in the parking lot of Skate City when Lucero and Richard Armijo were kicked out of the park for being too rowdy. Here, Lucero snaps a picture-perfect frontside Ollie once they were let back in to skate.
