I was thinking that you must be wrong because I hadn’t realized that I had ever been to “Lakewood” and thus, since I took the photo, it couldn't have been there. I actually posted something to that effect here. However, I looked at some other Oxnard half pipe shots and there's no railing in those. Then I remembered that I have some neg scans, that I had never cleaned up and posted, from Skateboard World. I had somehow remembered that park as being in Hawthorne. Sure enough, there was the railing. This photo is one of the first things I scanned and posted (notice the #00014) because the site was really begun as a tribute to Dennis. It was scanned from a print so I couldn't remember after 30 years where I had shot it. Finally, after having this all float around in my head for a day, I realized that perhaps I should google up Lakewood and at that point realized that Skateboard World was actually in Lakewood and that you were totally right. Here are a couple of other venicepix pages I quickly found from that park.

My guess is this is at Lakewoods long half pipe towards the deep end bowl.

Actually,I think this is more likely the half at the Endless Wave in Oxnard. I don't think Marina was quite yet built by July 78...
