cool
On 9/18/2017 loneskater wrote in from (174.238.nnn.nnn)

I miss this place too. I can't believe all the parks that have been built! I just got back from Durango and they have a really awesome spot built. I got to admit I cannot drop into the "big" bowl at the 10 ft mark!

As the weather cools, I am going to have to get out to Albuquerque, my work schedule isn't really clear until November but I need to make a trip. Got some new 187 knee pads and need to break em in. If I could figure out how to post pictures, all my photobucket stuff is gone.

So yes, I am still around and still skating and still having fun doing the sidewalk surfing, ditch and park when I can. Good to hear from you and great to see that ditch!

Name that ditch
On 9/18/2017 K-LEE wrote in from United States  (73.26.nnn.nnn)

That ditch is from God's Land of Ditches in ABQ, NM. Check the first few pages of the banks & ditches thread for a bit of history. You (loneskater) and I were #3 and #4 to post on this same forum back in 2002. 15 yeas ago. Wow. Where's the rest of the crew? I miss this site, it was literally my first (and best) experience with "social media".

On 9/16/2017 K-LEE wrote in from United States  (73.26.nnn.nnn)

It's been a really long time since I've posted here, but I recently started skating a ditch that I must have forgotten about. Smooth with some really fast drops. Gotta love this place...

repairing banks, patching banks
On 8/19/2013 Curt wrote in from United States  (68.165.nnn.nnn)

Hey, anyone done any concrete or asphalt patching? I came across a sweet bank today that had a 2" gap between the asphalt and the sidewalk next to it. It would be a decent ride except for that. I can hit the local Home "Despot" and do my own research, but if anyone has experience I can learn from, I'd love some pointers.

Banks aplenty
On 5/27/2012 Tacoma Grrl wrote in from United States  (72.244.nnn.nnn)

It's worth a trip down here to check the banks. Most of South Tacoma Way from 56th St southward is banked. Look for banks on sidestreets and parking lots too. It's nuts. I recommend making a leash for your deck though, like a snowskate, so it doesn't shoot out into traffic. Have fun!

Go to google street view: 7028 south tacoma way, tacoma wa. hell ya. That is just a taste.

Banks, ditches EDMONDS WASHINGTON
On 9/2/2011 Greta wrote in from United States  (67.100.nnn.nnn)

Still out there? I found some rad banks at the St. Vincent de Paul thriftstore in Kenmore off the main drag
7304 NE Bothell Way
Kenmore, WA 98028

I haven't skated it yet because I'd have to go when both the store and coffee stand are closed and Kenmore is crawling with bored cops in general, so maybe dusk?
It's up your way, so if you hit it, report back and/or let us know where to send contribution to your ticket. :)

banks, ditches EDMONDS WASHINGTON
On 6/27/2011 Greta wrote in from United States  (67.101.nnn.nnn)

Sorry man, I have searched and there are few banks floating around the Seattle area. Paved drainage ditches are non existent. There are rough pebbly banks at Garfield High School in Seattle, right on a busy street, so be sure you or your board don't go sailing out there. There's a little bank/loading dock in a parking lot on Broadway between Pike and Pine in Seattle's Capitol Hill Neighborhood and I sometime skate a teeny weeny bank at Stevens School at 19th and Galer also in Capitol Hill. If you find anything, please share the love, because that's all I've got. Good luck!
PS: the skate park at Burien has some nice banks and is old school, you might like it.

Slap it!
On 3/11/2011 Southwest Series Racer wrote in from United States  (67.0.nnn.nnn)

The Safe Longboard Awareness Program wants me to become a long board lifeguard, but I just want to have fun! Bungee tow in's at the SLAP! Totally green and quiet with unexpected high speed results. Less racing and more riding!

There will not be a race at the Bear for the first time in 9 years. It will be a GIANT free ride / slide session.

SLAP fees are due
On 2/18/2011 Slap Happy wrote in from United States  (65.19.nnn.nnn)

Those of you that have paid, GOOD JOB!

Those of you that have not, you need to go back to the NCDSA sign up page and use the PayPal button to do so because we are approaching full. This year will be capped at the first 75 PAID riders. If you are not able to make it, please remove your name from the sign up page or ask us to do it for you. After we have 75 paid entrants the remaining riders will be put on the waiting list.

Yup, You Win! That's some sick style for sure, thought some one might identify that, but matching his shirt will have to do. Send us your real name and shipping address.
