I've always dreamed of making/skating a brick quarter. Just to carve brick transition would be awesome.

How about a brick bowl/pool?? Obviously it wouldn't be actual brick. It would be stamped to look like brick, but it would still have the same feeling.

Look motherfuck, I just want to buy my "Purple Drank" shirt and get the fuck out so I can get home in time to steal some Virginia Slims from my mom before she gets home from work.

There is a manual pad in one of the parking lots that borders the outer perimeter of the park at Flushing Meadows, and the fact that the surface is made out of properly placed brick easily makes it my favorite manual pad to skate. Skating at the Brooklyn Banks used to be cool too...

i love skating on marble tiles. nothing feels better than very smooth marble with those small cracks. it makes the best sound in footage and the cracks dont make you lose speed. i love love park footage for that reason

i live in aberdeen (rattray's home town) and live about a 5 minute skate from the denburn banks so when i get bored i sometimes go for a skate there. there's just something rad about bricks and even radder about brick quarter pipes. i even love the little lip you have to ollie up every time to get onto the brick platform. you get into a cool rhythm ollieing on, tricking the quarterpipe, then rolling back off the bricks every run.

if you don't know the spot i'm talking about you'll probably recognise it. rattray makes it look easy to skate it in this video at 50 seconds.

Never saw that clip before...rad!  the backside to that wall blunt is nuts-o.  And Stu!  Also, on a Scottish note, when living in NYC there was a tallish skinny guy who'd every so often show up and skate the Chelsea park that was in some way connected to Stu (I think also Scottish)...anyways, the guy rips and always seemed to find new lines there.  Any chance someone knows who that mystery man is?  Hmm, maybe I should have put this in a 'Missed Connections' when I was still living there...

The indoor park by my house just built these wooden banks, but they cut the wood into brick sized panels, so it sounds and feels like bricks, but it slides well too. They even built a wallride just like the ones at the Brooklyn banks. The park kinda sucks and it;s $15 for 3 hours there, but it was worth it just to skate them. Still can't beat real bricks though.

I also noticed how cory kennedy has the planter line on brick in pretty sweet, and does his best to avoid bricks. Cory Kennedy confirmed for brick hater
