The guiding criteria for whether or not to include something on the spots page is to assess how many Canadian skate videos it has been in. If it’s more than one or two, everyone knows about it. (No disrespect to Canadians, it’s just a good gauge on how many people know about a spot.) So, this update is to fill in the spaces on spots that weren’t in Canadian skate videos around the time of our last spot update. The next one will probably take place in 2012 or 2013. But remember Matt Mooney’s immortal words: “I looked at every spot in the Quartersnacks spot section. There ain’t shit to skate.”
