This is quite special
Ed is also responsible for these amazing vintage sk8 inspired artworks
What a dude…
Great to see Prime in Plymouth creating such creative sk8 obstacles. It’s like if Richard Serra pushed like Gino.

Reminds me of creating ramps out of the market stalls in Wakefield on a Sunday
I have a load of pics from the late 80s…Rosie styling it in Dublin at the opening of the coolmine drug rehab centre all the ramp were made from pallets and for sale signs
After 40+ years Clive’s skate shop in Dublin is closing the doors tomorrow loads of good memories from getting my first proper set up a jeff Phillips deck, gullwing trucks and slammer wheels… Would love to be there tomorrow to see old friends but can’t make it…
you should submit those photos to https://www.instagram.com/thepastparticiple/?hl=en
Some famous faces in those pictures…
I love what Bobby Puleo is doing with proofing and documenting stories from sk8ing past and this is the greatest story - unseen footage of GOnz in NYC in the 80s.
Watched that at the weekend… really good
skate like a girl is an awesome organization - and last week their seattle winter warehouse had an unexpected visitor:
i fuckin’ loved the lincoln high ledges (the red/white ones). i lived a block or so away from there in 91/92 and skated them daily. then, after basically forgetting about them for a while, came back to them in the late 90’s and found them to be one of portland’s most dependable and lovable spots. easy to get to, no bust, and a place where everyone came through. (edit: they don’t exist anymore - you can go back in time on the google street view to see where they once were, as well as the rail few had the stones to step to - i certainly didn’t)
it may have even been posted in this thread before but silas baxter-neal kills portland center park (which i swear used to have a different name) in my day, it was damn near unskateable - it was so tight and crusty and it took a ripper like SBN to unlock the secrets. he also goes in on forecourt fountain (now called keller fountain), which is probably my favorite park in portland, it’s one of the best places in the city on a hot summer day. i did a LOT of mushrooms here. once in a while someone would dump a box of laundry detergent in it and the place would become an ad-hoc foam party.
Yeah lots of spots I haven’t seen before it’s a great video the last line is super… Reminds me of the Video Cory Kennedy put out years ago mostly shot Seattle and the PJ Ladd video wonderful horrible life…
sebo’s last line in that is so epic - starting out at the stairs on the NE corner of the park blocks, down park avenue, hang a right on yamhill, pass the nordstrom, and then ride through the south side of pioneer square.
i love google maps, you can actually check out the route! https://maps.app.goo.gl/Vn9Si5HWVjtEPAAPA
