kind of a diy... either way, this place is a lot of fun and has tons of potential. i swept it out, and then rub bricked and painted everything. i've got plans to ad a ledge half way up one of the banks and then possibly a flat bar on top of that hip. any other ideas?

That place looks so rad man!^

We are having a show tonight at a bar called San Fran in Wellington New Zealand to raise money for concrete to build more stuff!

I'll post up some pics of what we decide to build soon. I would love to get some feedback.

No plans, just ideas

In the Norwegian woods! Broke into one of the old millitary barracks today, and found more leca blocks, perfect coping and tiles!

Whompler - That ditch looks so fun! I would suggest rub bricking and painting 5 or 6 inches more down the bank for tailslide tricks.

We started on this quarter a month ago, but only got around to the speedbump this week. There is a wall underneath it, so it is necessary to have the speedbump to clear it.

This is our DYI spot.. Took ous 4 months to build, we did it for free.. It's called the Bunkern and it's hella gnarly. It's in a town called Gefle in Sweden.. Nothing for pussys that cant take a slam!



All hail the bunker! The skating is Element Europe summer 2010.

Here is some pictures from Bunkern aswell.

Built this today.  Just a little fun curb ledge/spine deal.  Planning on doing a pole jam next and then work on the wallride on the side of the building.  This area has a lot of weed intrusion in the asphalt, so there really isn't a design.  More of a work around the worst areas and build whatever is possible.

Thanks, I will.  I'm cutting out a small section of asphalt and putting in a pole jam next week.  I'll post pics when done.

thanks, most of the stuff at the top was experimenting with found materials over 6 years ago.

That spot in the strip used to be dope.

Added some new stuff today.

Pole jam.  A little on the short side (probably 18" from ground), but it'll work for me.




I had some left over concrete, so I added a few more bags and made this whale back slappy curb thing.  I'm still trying to get the hang of finishing concrete, so hard to do.




Wallride is next up.  That metal shelf thing on the wall is going to get shitcanned.




Got paint on the curb and some sanded down bondo at the bottom, so this thing is pretty much good to go...I hope.
