No, it doesn’t. But try telling that to the kids at Beaverton Oregon’s skate park. These ramps were originally garbage picked, well donated by the X-Games. If you wanted to ride the vert ramp it usually meant you had to kick the kids off the flat bottom. These pics are from such a session, circa 2001. When the bottom rotted out of the vert ramp, local officials decided to replace it with more street obstacles made of concrete, even, I hear. Does anyone want to send in some pics of the new street developments? That would be great, mmm-kay? More after the jump.
One of these guys might be famous, I don’t know. There a few pics of the vert ramp rescue efforts as well. Click these pics to see larger versions.
So MC organized a rescue effort to remove the pieces and cart them over to a hay baron’s field for eventual reconstructive surgery. The parks board was kind of difficult about the whole thing, not making it especially easy considering we were doing them a favor.
