Ok, for this upcoming Friday Night Fracas: Game of S.K.A.T.E. tournament with the champ getting a deck from PREMIER. …. and there is a bounty for nollie laserflip back 5050 on the curb, first to land that gets a premier blank deck. free to enter contest, lets have some fun!
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.
Another Lansing spot got its ticket punched, RIP doo doo bars aka dooky rails. Though painted several different colors through out the ages, sliding these fat flatbars always resulted in big, brown shit stains on your skateboard. The storefront has held a barber shop, a karate school, a tattoo shop, and largely sat empty, but it was on the watch of the current Weed Store tenants when these skidmarkers got yanked. (stolen by scrap metal fiends? relocated by skaters? or damned because people too high kept opening the door to leave Weed’s Emporium, and then stumbled repeatedly over these knee height fatsos? We may never know.) ..You will be missed, See ya when i get there, buddy…
Its a nine or a ten stair on Lansing’s Eastside, *heres the map*. Its right at the curve on eureka. Eureka street was a real popular little stretch for the workin gals, someone’s solution was to cut the street in half so johns couldnt cruise it in one shot. Prostitution solved!
On the sexual assault jogging path under Clemens st., park at Ralph F. Crego Toxic Waste Site/ City Park if youre driving. (bring all valuables with you if parked, or leave windows down. swamp infested with toxic bumfolk who love busting car windows). Its tall, its wood, but it slides good and those fortunate to have newer trucks have gotten this thing to grind. A bank backside for regular footers in the run up for line options. *this spot on the google map*
