Snake Run at the Subic Bay During the 80’s


This video footage of the snake run ( that’s what they call it during the 80’s) was a remnant of skateboarding during the occupation of the American soldiers in the Philippines in what so called Subic bay US Naval base. This ditch is a hallmark of the start of skateboarding era here in the Philippines where you’ll see in this video, the snake run is a blood line of enjoyment and happiness for skaters during the 80’s. Filmed by Brian Ashak, it was like a travel back in time seeing this ditch in its smooth pavement plus a half pipe on the side of it serving as skate haven for all.

The Snake run in its present condition

Now, the snake run in Subic  is considered as a forgotten ditch inside a private property of an old military base just waiting for skaters to serve and deliver a stoking experience.
