i donno where to really put this because i'm new....

but basically "we" built a wooden concrete style tranny park.

my buddy bought a building for his skate shop Suburban Blend, and we were given a 5' mini and we put it upstairs...  and as of right around chrismas we converted that mini and a shit load of lumber into "our heaven"

so i'll do some digging around and get what i can of shots of the last 5 months of us building the beast and get them all up here for yall to see.

it's awesome to say the least, pool coping, and steel.  5-12' tall and an over vert pocket.  here's some pretty up to date shots, history to come.

i also apologize, these other than the skateing shots were taken with my cell phone, while the skating shots were taken with my d700(i know get off my ass and do some real shots with the good camera...).

pre masonite, but we finished the pump bump that day...

and yeah i know i need to go actually shoot the damn thing, but when i try i just skate, or there are way too many skaters to get good angles safely... from the deck shots suck...
