Skateboards are not the best mode of transport – getting around to skate spots is really better suited to a bike. The only problem is how to carry your board. I discovered the awesome Bicycle Seat Post Skateboard Rack intractable, and then made it. It worked pretty well for me, I reckon.
I built a ledge to create my own skate spot. A spot that’s far away from the broken beer bottles, empty pizza boxes, assorted rubbish, blood, weirdos, police tape and everything else that gets in the way of skating the local council skate parks.
I’m not sure how long my ledge will last, but I’m going to enjoy it for as long as I can.
I’ve been inspired by The Build Project and the Cinder Block Ledge by DIY Skate to build a ledge in the stormwater-run-off-turned-bike track (a place I call The Ditch) of a nearby suburb. This blog post documents the process of building my DIY ledge at The Ditch – from inception to implementation.
