Skate stoppers are an unfortunate reality for skaters, but if you live in Southern California, you now have a masked hero who is alleviating these pains by unknobbing spots all across Los Angeles County for skaters to enjoy.
The Knob Buster, as he’s known, prefers to stay anonymous, but he’s still actively sharing his handiwork with the skate world via social media. He’s got an Instagram account cataloging the spots he’s freed up, and you can even tag posts on Instagram with #calltheknobbuster to let him know of a spot you think deserves to be freed from its shackles. Chances are he might make your dreams come true.
We had our friend Bobby Bils follow The Knob Buster for a day as he hit a couple of rails. After some close calls with onlookeres and a little elbow grease, LA was left with two more skateable spots (as if they needed any more). Check out The Knob Buster’s adventures in the player above and make sure to call him if you know of a spot in need — within reason, of course.
