The Nude Bowl got its name simply from its location on a once thriving isolated desert nudist colony. It was a bowl you would make a pilgrimage to for a weekend with midnight sessions by outlaw skaters and renegade enthusiasts. In memory of this one time skateboarding world wonder, Palm Springs played host to a memory expression session with many of the Nude Bowl’s early caretakers and shredders. Sean Manning captured the day with the images below and good times were had by all.
