D.I.Y. Spot Check | Nick Murphy – Ship Hull

I heard about this crazy ship hull d.i.y. spot recently, so on my way back to St. Pete from P(A)yne Skatepark in Sarasota last week, I stopped to scope it out. The hull is actually two huge separate fiberglass pieces, side-by-side. Someone has placed old metal signs, thin plywood, cardboard, and whatever else they could find over the big sketchy seam in the middle to make it at least somewhat ride-able. The walls are tight and steep, there is almost no flat bottom, almost no deck, and just to make it that much sketchier, there is a huge seam that you can see just below the lip in the photo.

So, naturally, the first person that came to my mind when thinking of people I know that would be down for this crazy spot, was my good buddy Nick Murphy. I told Nick about the spot, and a few days later Nick came over from Orlando and we set out on a mission. I’ll just put it this way…mission accomplished, and then some. I couldn’t wait to post one of the photos from the day, so below is the backside boneless that he stomped. Check out the first issue of the print mag in January for the rest of the photos from the day. Cheers. -Nicks
