Sensation Basin 1979 Pepsi Skateboard Team Challenge

Sensation Basin, Gainesville Florida hosted many of the competitions from the early days of skateboarding. The Pepsi Team Challenge II from 1979 was especially fun and many of the early stars of the sport called the park home. Pepsi has since gone on to sponsor the Extreme Games (X Games) with their Mountain Dew products. Here's a great site for the old school skateboard community and a little history about Sensation Basin. http://www.floridaskater.com/floridaskater%20sensation%20basin%20flashback.htm
