The Black Hill Project: A Ticket to Freedom

February 25 04:20 2017
A Retrospective Film to Honor the Skateboarding Mecca of the 70s known as La Costa and the Black Hill.

Denis Shufeldt and Stan Strocher have announced that they will be raising funds on Indiegogo to back ‘The Black Hill Project.’ In the 1970s there was a magical location in North San Diego County known as La Costa and the Black Hill. It was the mecca of skateboarding and its evolution, and provided a place to practice, test products, and race. Skateboarders came from all over to be a part of the gatherings of the Who’s Who of skateboarding.

Without the Black Hill, none of the attributes, such as the speed, beauty, power and excitement, could have led to the grip the sport has had on millions of skateboarders. La Costa was a magical location in North San Diego County known as La Costa and the Black Hill. It was the mecca of skateboarding and its evolution, and provided a place to practice, test products, and race. The project is aimed at covering that great legacy of the sport and preserving it for everyone.

The Black Hill Project will tell the story of the scene and happenings at La Costa and the Black Hill. The film Denis and Stan aim to produce will not only tell that amazing story but will also honor those that attended. Viewers will be able to watch this production on the big screen as well as their TV screens at home as the film will take them through the time, and will let them become part of  the magic of La Costa and the Black Hill.

All funds raised through this Indiegogo campaign will go towards producing this amazing film and also in promoting the spirit of skateboarding. Everyone now has a chance to contribute by backing this project on Indiegogo and also be rewarded with some great perks.
