After tweeting an apparently controversial statement re: the superiority of ledges to bowls, we hired a P.R. firm to do some damage control as to not alienate our transition-leaning audience. Our strategy became to boost the QS office’s annual concessions of skatepark coverage. The sentiment of those offended by the said tweet was “you’ll understand when you’re older,” so maybe its time for us to include more news items about transition obstacles four feet and under.
Illicit social media posts lead us to believe that the skatepark being built in place of the Fat Kid Spot is nearing completion. Some instructed to never stop hopping fences via Xenu have been doing so, giving us the first glimpse of a relatively #lowimpact park. It contains some otherwise scarce “straight [fucking] ledges” (a plus, considering they tore down some bust-free straight [fucking] ledges to create this place), and a bowl small enough to entice ledge skaters entering their twilight years. Remember, rock fakies on transition are the sole exception to the rule of the forbidden fourteen…
[Prob important: Cops are giving trespassing tickets to anyone hopping the fence.]
This all comes after a year-plus delay of D.O.T. red tape. (I think some kids who started skating after they fenced off the Banks for bridge construction are pro already.) They built the new McCarren park in five hours, but put a skatepark under a bridge and it turns into Sagrada Familia. Shout out to the D.O.T. for having a sick logo though.
