Just Build It!

Skater Built Bowls

The heat has subsided a bit here in Portland so it’s time to get back to work on all those backyard skate projects. Here’s a quick list of some local Northwest backyard projects that have appeared here on Earth Patrol that you might find inspiring. There’s nothing like designing, building and skating your own creations. EPM “sticking the shovel in” out.

Bowls Above the Radar

Shallow is Extinct

DRW Bowl Extension

The DRW bowl is an amazing backyard bowl but the locals weren’t satisfied. If you’ve skated with the DRW crew, you know how hard they hit this bowl including the non-stop sound of bone crushing grinds. So to up the ante, the crew added an escalating foot-and-a-half extension around the perimeter of the shallow. By the way, the shallow was in the neighborhood of 7 feet prior to the modification. Do the math, that’s 8 feet 6 inches of shallow. Check out Daniel, Chad, Eric and Bob as they take their maiden runs in the bowl.

Hip Bones

Monday Cover 46 - Shawn Reinert

We took a little trip over the weekend and look what happened. Shawn Reinert, this week’s Monday Cover skater, boned a sweet FS air over one of the hips of the DRW Bowl. This bowl is SICK!. Speed, speed and more speed can be had here. It’s amazing what a little collaboration between a math teacher and Dreamland can produce.

Congratulation Shawn and many thanks to the DRW crew for their hospitality.
