Well technically I guess its an old hobby rekindled:
We’ve been to this particular skate park a couple of times, but it was only the other day we found this magnificent bowl hidden in some back room.
And even better, it seems the youngsters aren’t that impressed with it, so they stay in the main area flipping and grinding, leaving us oldsters to the joy of carving up the pool – mint!
I need to make some serious progress before I can make the best use of it, but I sure had a blast last week. I’ll try and get some photos of me in it – but my apprentice photographer (pictured before he took a strop and went back next door ‘cos its rubbish’) is more interested in the half pipe and spine (next door).
Anyone else into skating?
Anyone come up with a skateboard/spreadsheet connection? I was thinking of using one to do some geometry calcs to work out the wood requirements, But I think a proper CAD app might be needed. SketchUp?
I guess I could write my shopping list in a spreadsheet!
