Playing Place should be right up your street if you want 70's nostalgia.

St Merryn has a nice mellow 70s style bowl, although it's actually a lot newer than that.

thanks for the vid, kind of reminded me of a smaller version of the bowl in holywell , is that a car park next to it and is it easy to find? also if this weather keeps up then we might have a surfing lesson ( if they do them for fat old people :) )

Stayed in St Merryn a couple of years back and its a fun little bowl to have a skate in and never seems to have that many vistors. Its pretty rough concrete though and is advisable to have pads on if you tend to be like me and have the occasional mishap as it tends to rip a layer or two of skin off.
I hear 50's are the new 30's so maybe I will remember them this time round :)
Can also be found on XBOX Live as TheGTeam
