2 month time lapse reduced to less than a minute
i want it to progress like the skatecolorado ramp, something new every spring. so for the 1st year anniversary we bowled 1 end in. the drunken napkin design ended up being the shit and the vert ramp jason hooked me up with ended up being the frame and final layer. not only did we have to build this thing, but we had to tear down a huge vert ramp (tim payne built it for a contest, then it became the boulder park vert ramp, then it went to the church, and then to this rich kids backyard) in boulder fast enough to keep the wood moving. the more i recycled, the less i had to buy, easy incentive, just had to work for it. in the end i spent about 2 grand on the west wing addition. screws, nails, ply, blades, and coping material mostly. not bad for going above and beyond my wildest dreams for what i would have in my backyard. this mini bowl is my favorite thing ever. mad props to those that made it happen. merk (east coast ramp design), greg, greasy, billy, troy, jack, bruce adams, big ed, marshal, tuck, wastell, matty, terrill, steve, keith, mikey, ricky martin, roth, sessions, james, mitchell, bowl troll, spidey, emag, brisco, charley, gerrick and sba people
someday this will get capped somehow
the west wing is the shit. another option for bowlin in that mini
more fun and more challenging than you can ever imagine
dont cross the white line
launcher to pro status
one of the raddest escalators ever
recycled recycler at the recycler
yeah yeah, i know i said i was never gonna do roundwall, but i couldnt pass this design up.
what shape is it? a limp dick
levels of fun
this area is pretty unique. a setback ledge by a hip with a kicker off the back of it
greasy's (or troys) concrete sector
i feel like we stepped it up a notch from pouring a lip in place. team pain let us use their molds, so we poured our own blocks. they are really hard and have the same profile as a penrose block. for the 19' rad wall we have to make a 40' rad block and then cut it in half. should make for a great grind
ohh where do these things go
merk the jerk
36 sheets of used skatelite. they were probably 10 years old
ahh 18 sheets of new skatelite for tearing down a ramp (mostly w gregs truck)
play find a stud, mark a template with merk sometime
where does it go?
every piece of ply on every layer of the tranny was a bitch. we had an extensive washer/screw procedure to make sure all ply was sucked tight
always moving stuff around so its outta the way, or doesnt get trapped
merk, workin in the rocket pocket.
12" rad 70 degree hip into 8 feet of flatwall
greg ripped thru most of the ribbin in no time at all. 3 cuts each board, no 2 the same. avoiding, cutting and removing screws, nails and timber locks. using 20 year old wood we just ripped off the ply of a useless ramp. this is what the recycler is all about.
thats about a 60 foot lip that escalates down 16" over the whole length. people standing there wouldnt even notice it
this things held toghter with green karma, not split used 2x6s
shits rock solid
7' rad top, 7.5 tranny cut to 6 feet 125 deg- your looking at the focal point of some crazy shit
theres a good view of the 19' rad kidney wall at 125 deg
i was barly ahead of greg and merk setting templates. had to dig and level and support before shit was inaccessible
here we go again. merk came over to start on it. i really wasnt ready, but when would i be ready?
starting from the bottom, smashed chunks of an old concrete slab are used to level steel bars from the old broomfield park
