All it takes is one bail from a  bike or skateboard to go through the window or destroy the floor.

Concrete? We have one of those prefab ramptech deals..it’s starting to come apart..I guess it’s better than nothing..and it’s 2 blocks away..I tried for concrete...
One of my pet peeves is when the city springs for a killer concrete park and within a year it looks like shit because of all the graffiti..Kokomo Indiana was amazing when it was built..now it looks like shit and it’s slick as hell..kids are idiots today

Please.....no Tuff Wheels on full on race bikes...original graphite’s only and pre 81 and never on a cruiser for God’s sake
Let me guess you were factory sponsored in
the 80’s...
Please no colored tires on race bikes...
So how many years were you a Pro....
You knew a guy that had a Mongoose that weighed 12 pounds
What year did you mix it up with Stu?
Thinking about going 22”....do it...

Re: RAMPS, Gates, Half pipes, Lets see what you built for BMX

Here’s the setup recently built at my house. It’s 4 feet tall, and about 45 feet long.

Yes, its concrete and will most likely be tagged up by Spring...

I'm done for now... tongue gonna end up changing the vert wall setup and adding coping and such. But it's ridable. I went with an asphalt based fence paint rather than spar urethane, it's cheap as heck and it seems pretty legit... but we'll see. Of course as soon as I start putting untreated it rained every weekend, so it got a bit warped. It's all good...

It's funny how easily indentifiable Florida is from photos - its like when I see police chases on Police Activity on Youtube - I can always tell when it's Florida - look for patches of dirt or sand along the grass or the color of the grass, or the shear flatness. 

I used to drive over to Ocala to photograph people dirty jumping in the park they have up there.


What would you little maniacs like to do first?

Re: RAMPS, Gates, Half pipes, Lets see what you built for BMX

Man I wanted SOMETHING soo bad as a kid. I grew up in a small town that was pretty country. Our neighborhood each house was at least an acre. We were on 3. My dad would let me build what I could, but I didn’t have wood, so that meant digging holes and took forever. We ended up finding a spot in the woods that every few years they’d come back there with a dozer an clear a path. At some point dirt had been pushed between 2 large oak trees. Once we found this, we just shaped it into a perfect double (The Tree). From there we’d drag ice chests, appliances, whatever we could find, and cover with dirt (eliminating the amount we had to dig. We called this the track. One time we were there and they were clearing out that path. We asked  one of them if they could push some mounds of dirt up for us. He said he didn’t think so, and wasn’t sure if we were even supposed to be on the property. So we left. Came back a day or 2 later, and guys did what we asked. All jumps we had made were in place, and off the path where they clearing, right where our little berm was they left 4 mounds of dirt spread out about 6-8’ apart. We shaped em to basically be a double, then a table top (pushed the last 2 together). It was there as long as I was a kid. I went back there on my 4 wheeler not too long ago and it’s all gone now. The trees for “ The Tree” were even gone. But man I spent countless hours at that spot. It was so satisfying to work that hard building them up, guessing how far we needed the landings, and then being able to jump them.
Somewhere along the line we learned of a track about 30min away. Saturday was about the only day we get get someone to drop us of and pick us u until one of my older friends turned 15 and got his license and a truck. We’d have 5 bikes in back, 3 of us in the cab (single cab) and 2 in back with bikes.
That track is still there (brought my boys last week) but now they also have a legit skate park as well. I have to admit, after a 20 year hiatus, the sk8 park was a bit intimidating... lol
