LC snake run

LC4 071228

The long-planned snake run connecting upper and lower Lincoln City skatepark is in progress. They tore out the tight tranny on the west side of the park and started the snake there. It runs down the hill at a fairly steep angle with four or five turns and there will be a big wall at the bottom to direct you back up the hill. It is going to be gnarly! Word is they will start to pour next week. Dreamland strikes again!

    AWESOME.

    Been waiting for this one for years. You know it’s gonna be gnarly. Somehow walking between sections of a skatepark has never felt right.

  5. Wow! I love snake runs, and I love Lincoln city….Wow.

    Are you sure that isn’t a bobsled run???

  10. It’s super cool. Thanks to LC and the Dreamland folks for making it happen.

    That looks so sick!

  12. MENTAL!

  13. wow. I didnt think that they would actually do it. I guess I just couldnt visualize it. sick!!

  14. Yeah, I always thought that hill looked too steep. It looks like you’ll be able to work it as fast or as gradually as you want but there will definitely be potential for breakneck speed and giant launches.

  15. If Mark Scott didnt make things almost unrideable, there wouldnt be as many good skaters around as there is. Everytime Dreamland makes something 11.5 feet deep or something gnarly like that people gasp at first, then they step up to the plate.

  16. This is one of those things that looks ridiculous on paper, or in person (before it gets built) but once it is finished it will be amazing. I’m glad they had the courage and audacity to go for it. Lincoln City is going to be one hell of a skatepark. I can’t imagine what it will look like in 10 years.

  17. The other thing to keep in mind is the amount of concrete needed to span the distance between LC1 and LC2. This will make Lincoln City the biggest park in the state.

    Sweet mother of god. How deep is the run out going to be?!

  19. I have not the gnar… still can’t wait to see it though! kerazee!

  20. Even I must admit that this is pretty much ballin outta control. I may even stop doing flip tricks on the bank long enough to figure it out.

    I just shed a tear of happiness. :)

  22. Unfamiliar with the layout of the park and it’s sections…
    The bottom one is the pool/bowls and stuff, I’ve seen that in pictures a few times, but the upper section.. is it streety? I don’t know?

    Either way, I am definitely going to need to make a road trip to skate this thing.

    Looks like an Eastside DropKick and some 78a Grippins would be the right set-up for that run.

  24. It’s going to be fast.

  25. …get ready for the catamaran time trials this spring. Fast as shit!

    I wonder if it’s going to be snake into something like Klamath Falls with a SUPER HUGE methamphetamine wall…or super huge crank wall so you crack back up the snake run, because I like to smoke and billow super huge puffs of white smoke. I like the way my hair tingles and the rush of such a thrill on four maybe three wheels.

    Exactly. It’s not whether it can be ridden, but whether YOU can ride it. One of the many subtle yet crucial differences between Dreamland and the rest, especially non NW companies, in my opinion.

    I wrote about this a few years ago for The Mag, but it bears repeating at celebratory moments like these: Ron Ploger, Lincoln City Parks & Recreation Director, has probably made the greatest non-skater contribution to skateparks of anybody. Nothing related to the LC skatepark complex has ever happened without Ron.

    And you surely know by now it’s not as simple as just letting Mark do whatever he wants out there. There is bureaucracy involved in everything. Ron figures it out so Mark can explore the shapes in his head for our benefit. Raise your tallboy for Ron sometime.

    I wouldn’t say Dreamland’s stuff is unrideable. Just the opposite. LC 2 and Klammath Falls are so perfect that little effort is needed to ride them. You just stand on your board and roll, you barely have to pump. On the other hand, the tallest walls at Northern CA parks such as Pacifica, Sunnyvale and Redwood City are so freaking hard to reach the top of. I was hoping that someday I wouldn’t have to take a vacation all the way up to Oregon every year. Now I have to go back.

  29. I kinda thought that Red just did it and dealt with the fallout later…Kinda the Hailey effect.

    I skated with a guy from Rhode Island a while ago and he said that they had a law on the books that said no skateparks could be taller than 4 feet, so they just made up for it by making everything vert with gnarly pool coping on it. You step up or step off apparently.

  30. I cant wait is it gonna be seylynn on steroids? im up for a challenge. I cant wait to go back to lincoln city especially after trifecta.

  31. Can any one verify That this will not connect the parks?

  32. I was told that it would come about twenty feet short of meeting. You should have the speed to do a twenty-foot transfer no problem though. I think there was also talk of a little side path.

  33. Oh that gap.

  34. I totally hope it’s like Seylynn on roids.

    I’d love to do some sweet fly outs outta that thing.

    How about compact dirt transitions connecting them where they fall short!! Tabletop?
    I agree w/ the repeat Thrasher Award.
    Or prob. Gnarliest downhill award is in the bag.
    The later addition of a lookout tower and a moat will finally be realistic!
    Uphill, how about a rope tow!!
    Go LC go!

    stay home and dont skate, skate and annoy sucks ass

  41. Sucks… your ass, but you said you liked it.

    Oh sorry, did you really think this was some kind of secret spot that we are blowing out?

    Shows over folks. nothing to see here.

  42. Aliases are cowardly. Noone cares what a coward has to say. Sure it’s fun, but the web has legitimized sniping.

  43. What about backwards aliases?

  44. his shoe polish heritage

  45. for some reason my post from last week got erased. unless i was drunk and put it up in the wrong spot. anyway, here is the gist of it again…

    the bottom wall is a catcher’s mitt, ala k-falls, but smaller. 12 an 1/2 ft tall in the center, tapers to 11 ft on the sides. about 10 ft trannies. pool coping on the catcher’s mitt, and some other spots. a little steel coping. lots of rolled over traditional snake run lips. lots of volunteer hours put in. the whole thing is monumentally crazy. some people are gonna get hurt.
