Nice work man! That place looks fun to skate, are you guys gonna build more there? Cant wait for summer to come here so we can start to play with concrete... posted our DIY couple pages back,hopefully we can add some more there before they turn it to parking lot.

Yours looks amazing, like everything I've ever wanted to build.  We're resuming work on the Pyramid the week of 4/14, finishing that and possibly building some other little goodies if there are bags left over.  The long term plan is to build a bowl corner, similar to what you built, in the one shady part of the spot.  This spot has been around since 1995, there's footage of a young Bobby Worrest skating it, and Marc Johnson rambling about something in the Pizza place next door.  Bobby came through and murked the new ledge the other day, it was a sight to see for sure. 

Bobby is around the 4:10 mark

so this disheveled concrete is gonna be the deck of a ramp. we dug out a lot of dirt to find the shape of the concrete and we found/ate wild carrots. pretty neat! they're white and have a little more spice like radish, less sweet taste.

thanks bawtawd.
silky, that dirt will go back in the hole when the cement dries. the flatbar is 8 plus feet in a 6 foot grass gap. the ends are on concrete. it's a thick slab so we just built it how we can but yeah, gonna leave the grass, whole car or no car.

is anyone else building?
we did some diddling to the L ledge, left enough of a corner to still necessitate pop outs but scrapped enough to recycle into an off the curb/down some grass hubba. will it work? idk.
has anyone else built a downhill ass ledge?
any tips?
i'm guessing this will be big fun until the angle iron pops out and we have to re-attach it.
we built a small 'learning ledge' w. the other angle iron.
spot keeps improving, great guys!

I've turned my backyard into a free and public diy spot.  Looking at doing more of a Lost Bowl layout over the next few years.

Some tips right out the gate would be to stomp some gravel into the ground, and then use some rebar, broken golf clubs, or whatever and hammer them into the dirt in the cinder block holes and crete em up.  After that you could drill some countersinks into the angle iron and bolt that fucker into the side, in addition to the liquid nails.

We built a solid granite ledge on this new plaza the city just did. There's a yard not far where they had these big pieces of granite scraps from the plaza, so we just had to carry these things glue and seal everything. It was heavy as fuck though. 13.5inch low and 6.5 feet long. It grinds like a dream after 5 minutes of skating...
It does look like legit bench enough i hope for the city not to tear it down.

That ledge is fucking beautiful. I hope it lasts.

The city postponed our "late July" demolition date and gave us some more life so we popped the top off this bench and made this.....



If you're within a car ride from Detroit, head out for Go Skate Day, we are having a Real demo as part of the "Actions REALized" tour.

Palm Beach has a decent D.I.Y. builders, just extremely fastidious when including others in their projects. If I had a truck I'd help out.
