With no indoor skatepark, many Calgary skaters have taken things into their own hands to keep skating during the winter months.
Jared S. sent through some photos of his amazing-looking basement ramp. This is one of the best ones we’ve ever seen!
This is how Jared breaks it down:
“The ramp is 16 feet wide, just under 4 feet high with 6 feet of flat bottom. It’s is in an old building about three blocks from my house; I am fortunate enough to have some friends that let me build it in the basement. I built it because skateboarding f&*%ing rules and everything else totally sucks ass. Also because I’m old and I hate traditional exercise. I pretty much built it myself. I’ve built ramps in the past and was a carpenter for ten years so I just built it to fit the space I had– didn’t use any plans. I learned how to cut trannies from my pal Trent Walker (RIP) about 20 yrs ago. So the 6 ft trannies come from him, super quick.”
