Ok, here's the story. Way back in the early 1970's a group of skaters discovered the now legendary La Costa hills. Miles of virgin asphalt just waiting to be ridden. Every Sunday skaters from near and far would show up at "Black Hill" to run cones, everyone from a beginner to an expert was welcome. Shufeldt, Piercy, Ryan, Johnson and Hester were just a few of the racers who would show up for these weekly races. To honor this special place in skateboarding's history the decision to name the BAHNE slalom starter board became known as the "Black Hill" model.
