Swedish timber management and Canadian Maple.

Swedish timber pipe

A skate buddy of mine from a different life (Bob Mechtly) sent me these pictures of this old metal timber pipe/ditch in Sweden that isn’t being used today. He said it’s about 450 yards long. What he didn’t say, was how it rode and what he was doing there. Dang. Looks like Michigan. Was this a timber waterslide? Good luck wading through the internet trying to find that information. It seems like a track would have made more sense than pumping water, unless they were able to divert a natural water source. But then the downstream… oh right. This is a skateboarding web site and not the Bureau of Land Management. Looks like a lot of fun. Rarely do we see something skateable that is so long… Enlargements after the jump.

UPDATE: There was a little bit of a mix up. These Aren’t Bob’s photos, I’m tracking down the originals.


  1. that flume looks fun as hell.. yeah bob,coming thru with some goods..

  2. There’s a couple of them up here, nothing close to that. Basically they were slides for the lumber.

    Go find an abandoned waterpark or minigolf course instead!
