Most likely weather will be shitty, so under the bridge if it is.
Erics Market on Penn and Oakland recently made their banked hip out front way easier to skate by removing the dirt+plants up top and filling it in with blacktop.
This is big news for the generations of Lansing street skaters. Because this spot (in its previous incarnation) has already been featured on the spot list, we wont re hash it. scroll through the archives if you want the history lesson (spot #12).
*has the bounty been claimed for the nosebluntslide? does that offer still stand? there may be $100 to be had here….
the votes are in: Jake “no - board” Salters is your 2012 Lansing Street Skater of the Year.
*All raw street spots, all the time.
*He’s too loco not to be.
*this man is 100% LANSING
Nice work, Jake. Eli is working on a “jake salters lifetime achievement”video edit, so look for that.
(btw, park skater of the year 2012 went to Ben Riddle, but that dont get a graphic)

Bring a flatbar if ya got one…. Lets go skate under the bridge
AJW, Baby Jesus, sorry you guys. this had to be done.
Smooth blacktop approach and landing. A decent size, in the 10-12 stair realm. Right there on Aurelius, you will see the beautiful baby blue beast parked in the upper lot. Its a beauville, i think. or whatever the conversion edition of that van was… Unaware of ABD’s on this, i know i havnt done shit on it. *Heres the link to map* oh yeah Sabu from wrestling lives on this street.
all of the many stairways leading up to ottawa plaza have had new handrails put in or are in the process of. on all four sides of ottawa plaza (an elevated office plaza boxed in by pine st, allegan, ottawa, and walnut). theyre new, round and burly. new run ups and landings too. theres a ton of em and up in the plaza, theres still about a hundred plastic picnic tables and benches up there. *skate it after 5pm or weekends.*
rite downtown Lansing. heres the googlemaps of it.
Little manny patch on MSU campus with a ton of ABD’s: Zigman ollied over it, big Zack Tuck KF manny’d it, Lee Beans nose manualed it the hard way, Matt Brooks powerslid it. percise coordinates on this one escape me, on one of those rabbit trail oriented streets, along the red cedar river. other shit to skate near this, but not worth the hassle in my opinion. depends how private you like your sessions. no map, sorry. my memorys failed me. ha mammaries failed me
Hers a bump to bar on the corner of Grand ave. and Dickstump street, at the Unsolved Murder/ transfer station. I found this photo on the infonet, and i’m using it. Dustin Crawforth if you have an issue with that, check your behady mob credentials. Or check mine. … If not, thank you Mr. Cranford for the pic, AJW looks good as ever, and i’m sure this was a make. Heres the map, folks.
