I personally like Washington Street better.

i personally think its apples and oranges. i've spent a lot more time at burnside, so i like burnside.

Washington street kills it, and is the only good thing about San Diego.
FDR kills it, in a different way, and is one of many great things about Philadelphia.
I haven't been to Burnside or portland, but I am sure they are sick.

Even if you like one, anybody who talks shit on any of these parks is a kook through and through. Have trouble skating it? Aww, poor baby. Talking shit on the park doesn't make you cooler at all. Its fucking skateboarding, not some team sports, liking one thing doesn't mean you should hate another, especially when they are pretty similar

yeah, most tikes are full paded up at skate friendly parks....

i wish more kids had the burnside experience...

growing up skating in a parking lot with a bunch of dudes with no teeth that constantly have a high life in their hand has the same effect.


Title: Re: Washington Street vs Burnside
Post by: elastic back on September 11, 2008, 11:34:37 AM
i have skated burnside (a couple trips and another to come soon), washington street (one trip), and FDR and here are my thoughts:

burnside is my favorite (note, i did not say best), and here is why...portland, there are many different styles of skaters (yes, malinas, some people like variety), there are a bunch of other sick spots in skating distance, once  you get the feel for the park it is super fun, the corner hip by the back bowl, chet childress and chaz, dude i have never heard of killing it to no avail.

i don't like: watching people slam into each other at 60 mph, inconsistent trannies (though i kinda like it at the same time), more people lurking than skating (some people are there with skateboards for hours and never even skate).

fdr is my least favorite (note, i did not say worst), and here is what i like about it...mellow and steep trannies, graffiti (even the bad stuff adds to the ambiance), philly isn't too far from ny, separate miniramp to week out those looking to skate mini.

i don't like that it is far removed from anything else you want to skate, bmxers, people just skating the bowls like miniramps, kids not being put in place (thus standing in the middle of the park), kinda small.

washington street is somewhere in the middle (and note that i have only "skated" it once). here is what i like about washington street: gnarly (it is by far the gnarliest of the three with very tall/steep walls), parking curb usage, locals doing things on it that make it clear they skate it everyday, friendlier locals than burnside (not to say that burnside locs aren't friendly, just...different, haha), wallride, bank to curb, cradle, ever(?) changing.

what i don't like: honestly, i could hardly skate it. it is not for those that occasionally skate tranny, you need to live that stuff. give me a month skating it and i might feel more comfortable, but definitely not on a first go. this is also something that i like about it, but since i was a visitor that is not a factor. little kids doing the same runs over and over (which leads to my next point), it isn't really set up  for more than one or two people to skate at the same time.

eitherway, i am down to skate any of them and since they are so far apart, i doubt i am ever going to be in a situation where i have to choose between them..."hmm, should i fly to portland or san diego today to skate?" but i am psyched to be going back to portland soon, that place is so rad.

Shut up jerk, I resemble that remark.  In all seriousness though, the crash up derby factor can be one of my favorite parts about skating there.  There's nothing quite like zinging past someone with five inches between you.

I love the bridge.

zinging past some one going ape shit off some tranny is only tight when your watching... doing it on the other hand completely sucks.... but not as much as running into someone at that speed. especially a tike.

I will be in Portland staying 1 mile from Burnside for the next two days. I'm going for work and will likely only be able to skate at night. Other than usual park (stay out of local way) etiquette any recommendations? Bail this is mostly directed your way.

qman is actually clean and sober as of late, and even when he was all strung out and fucked up, morning was the time to cath him there. so was afternoon. so was the evening. morning was just the best, because he was usually pretty sober and lucid.

 if you get a chance to talk to him, take it. he's an unforgettable character, so take a minute to talk to him about the skate army. just go early in the day (like 9 or 10am) to figure out some lines, and when the after-work session starts up, seriously consider having a beer in the parking lot. it can get pretty hectic, and the collision factor is high.

don't sit down anywhere inside of the park except up on top of the crows nest. stay out of peoples lines. bring beer.

We're stealing people's mail
stealing people's mail
stealing people's mail
On a friday night

Drivin' in the mountains
Winding 'round and 'round
Rummage thru your mailboxes
Take your mail back to town

And we got license plates, wedding gifts, tax returns
Checks to politicians from real estate firms
Money, bills and cancelled checks
Pretty funny pictures of your kids

We're gonna steal your mail
On a Friday night
We're gonna steal your mail
By the pale moonlight

We got grocery sackful after grocery sackful
After grocery sackful after grocery sackful
After grocery sackful after grocery sackful
Of the private lives of you
Ha Ha

People say that we're crazy
We're sick and all alone
But when we read your letters
We're rolling on the floor

We got more license plates, wedding gifts, tax returns
Checks to politicians from real estate firms
Money, bills and cancelled checks
We cut relationships with your friends

We're gonna steal your mail
On a Friday night
We're gonna steal your mail
By the pale moonlight

We better not get caught
We'll be dumped in institutions
Where we'll be drugged and shocked
'Til we come out born-again Christians

Marginal Way is the first DIY park I've skated.  Wait!  Not true!  Warren Vermont has a project going on.  That was lumpy as fuck, set on asphalt, and hard to get speed for anything.  Marginal Way is gnarly as fuck.  I see it on the Thrasher site while I'm in VT and I'm thinking "Oh I can't wait to go to Margy and carve over the deathbox!"  No fucking way!  That shit is so sketchy!  And the wall with the metal coping?  Whew!  How the fuck Peabody got back crails on that shit mistifys me.  That place is sooooo fun though. 

So Marginal was way gnarlier than I though it would be, and so I thought that Burnside would be also.  I think that as far as trannies and steepness go, Burnside is much mellower than Margy, however, it is way harder to keep your speed at burnside, and that shit takes some getting used to.  I wish that I could skate there every day.

Washington street looks amazing, and I am a big fan of bells and whistles.  Aka, loveseats, wallrides, bank to ledges, boobs, cradles, tight trannys, and everything in between.  That park looks fast as fuck with soooooooo many easy to find lines. From what I have read though, it is way gnarlier than it looks and fuck!  I can't wait to skate that shit!

Big ups to anyone and everyone who has every been a part of any of these parks.  I think that they are some of the coolest, weirdest, most amazing human creations on the earth.  It's so inspiring to see what a bunch of "lazy" "worthless" fucking skateboarders can do when they really go all out on something.

Keep the concrete crusade hurdling forth!

i used to love the banks but i am starting to despise them. i was skating there yesterday and got bummed out by all the bikers and little kids filming their lines that consisted of 180s and halfcabs on flat. i miss going there and practically have a run of the place with few people showing up there. at least i did get to see a cop drive into one of those things that are raised up from the ground to keep traffic out and another cop in the booth has to let down for anyone to get through. i guess he wasn't paying attention of the cop in the booth wasn't, but it was awesome.

it is a DIY scene. just as burnsiders took over the spot below the burnside bridge, NYer took over the underside of the brooklyn bridge. it was claimed for us. as far as obsticles go, they city wasn't going to do anything for us. they were going to screw it up (and kinda did) but steve rodriguez (owner of 5boro) stepped in and got them to make it better by getting rid of some planters and adding a flatbar and some granite slabs. he (with the support of companies for bank to the banks) built a bunch of obstibles there too. well pensyl and other actually built them, but due to him. DIY is a lot more than just pouring cement illegally.

That is very, very true.

I'm often asked "who does your hair" and when I tell them it's DIY they are absolutely flabergasted.

I do a lot of my own gowns for pageants as well.

The banks needs more stuff, there needs to be a legit concrete park in new york city, like some bowls and shit. Especially since all the legit bowls/mini ramps are for 16/18+ and cost money to skate. I'm pretty sure there are backyard pools to skate all around suburban New York, just can't find any :(.

Nobody kills it at the banks like Koston bro.
Nobody kills it at Burnside like Luda Crooks bro.

Just go to Burnside with a halfrack and give them all out and you'll be greeted with open arms man.  and a joint or two wouldn't hurt your cause either.  then go eat at the montage and get shit talked by the wait staff. welcome to Portland motherdickers

there is owl's head in bay ridge, brooklyn. concrete bowls and free, but like all nyc skateparks, closed half the year.

we found a pool in queens. it is pretty much a bust though.

it isn't that easy. we have once, but the thing is that it is at an apartment building and needs to be bailed out before you can skate it each time. by the time you are done bailing it, the super or porter of the building will already have noticed...so you would do all the work for nothing.

Actually it's not WSVT vs. Bside or any other D.I.Y. etc. park we are in this together Brothers making shit happen just in different states.. Our vibes and parks are different but like skateboarding we have something in common that a regular official city park does not.

 FDR was before WSVT i remember calling it Philly Side with everyone else at Burnside & in the mags for a min. but we were not knockin it, most thought it was tight that there was another bridge park.

Now there is more than ever, stoked I skate Burnside & Marginal Way all the time, I also enjoy my visits & skateboarding at Washington St. ,San Pedro & Boardertown they are all really fun & the scenes are great from a Burnsiders & skateboarders point of view.  I think a lot of people from the Northwest actually moved to SD (some stayed) and others that have visited the NW helped work on Washington St. ,,too many to name...
YEp Washington St. is bigger & some parts of the park are of a High challenging callibur, so are parts of all the parks.  Depends I guess What your Really talking about, is it Skateboarding? or people getting Beat up? Or having the most people or pros visit the park? How about the most famous or well known, what about the most appreciated or underappreciated? The Dryest? Best/Worst most challenging weather? Who has the best BBQ or the most bird shit? The most history. Most Chicks? Most do-able chicks? What about the cleanest dirtyest shitters? Most Rats.  Most busy day to day? Best Sessions? Most Broken Bones, ambulance visits.  Best Beer, Free Beer, Best Trees.  Which has a titty bar with no cover close by.  Toughest to skate? Funnest to skate? Best to hang out at? Best anniversary party? Best SkateRock Bands? Maby the Best Locals only vibe.
But really which of those makes one win over the other?  Its all a matter of opinion.  One thing is for sure reguardless, we are a family of bridge parks in Our Own League, that skateboarders took a stand & Stood UP to beat the odds, overcoming tough stuff like money, city kooks, gangs, drugs and all the like.

As far as my artwork getting painted over at wsvt. it also gets painted over at Burnside & Marginal Way too (usually over time), that is not the limit of places I paint, I just enjoy to skateboard & have a talent(I share) (my goal)hopefully to make our parks look good!  Not everyone likes everything I do & they let me know, trust me.. I respect that & opinions but their are others that do encourage me to paint.  When I paint I donate my money, time & supplies & I skateboard that makes me a winner in my book.  If you think about it, "its what you can do for your skatepark & skateboarding, not what they can do for you!"

Hip Hop artwork is usually something I paint outside of skateboarding/skatepark artwork.  So you prob. wont see that bullshit at burnside, or other skateparks, although its not out of the question.  If you have seen the diverse art I create you might understand that spraypaint is just a medium people use and it does not dictate their content. 
Now correct me if I'm wrong. The skull I painted last year at WSVT had too much HIPHOP style, with a trowel in his hand breaking through the wall ? I personally think that is about as D.I.Y. as it gets, maby it was actually too PUNKROCK for the person who buffed it, to deal with.  This year I painted O.G. Locals Pitbull "Scout" on the wall, I think that it's ironic that the spitfire wheel graphic for WSVT is Pitbulls too, don't you?  (I thought a Pit was perfect idea off the top of my head on the spot, & so did the LOCs)  I also get permission, & consult with the Locals & skateboarders taking them & their spot into consideration before painting anything anywhere.   Trust me, I felt priviledged to paint at Washinton St. the past 2 years and I still do feel that about Burnside I'm stoked just to be a part of the shit & be able to hang out & skate or visit BBQ etc..
My name is synonamous with skatepark art, consistent every year for over 16 years painting at skateparks, spots, shops & walls etc. for the Love of IT! I also listen to all kinds of music from Afrika Bambatta to Misfits from KRS1 to the Late Greats J. Cash & Bob Marley step into the pit Toxic Waltz, DRI, Testament? GRindLine the Band, Just saw Creepy Creeps in SD in Jan. SICK.. Come on mahn, Slayer bro..
