I got a short email from a guy telling me how much he enjoyed Skate and Annoy. His signature included his own web site, DIY Skate. Was it just a cheap ploy to get me to feature his site here? I don’t know and I don’t care, because DIY Skate is pretty impressive. DIY Skate has a healthy amount of detailed ramp and obstacle plans, with more on the way. There are plans for making board presses and even board molds, with alternate methods. These plans are uniformly illustrated with the help of CAD-type renders. Terminology is explained and resources have been collected. Need glue, veneer, or a jack to build a board press? DIY Skate has the links and sometimes even knows what the minimum orders are. Projects feature a difficulty rating, average cost, materials list and tools list. Right now the resources of DIY Skate are concentrated on wooden skate terrain and skateboard construction. What’s missing is concrete terrain and some of the more artsy-fartsy stuff like screenprinting and zine making, but fortunately you can get some of that right here! The design of DIY Skate is no nonsense, and has minimal, non-intrusive advertising. Check out DIY Skate before you start your next skate related project.
