Insta | Ramp – Crawdad Fest

Grosser sent over a killer little edit of a recent Insta | Ramp session during the Crawdad Fest in downtown Orlando. The Insta | Ramp will be at the Go Skateboarding Day event at Hemming Plaza in downtown Jacksonville tomorrow. If you are anywhere near the Jacksonville area tomorrow…get to this!

Future 6/ Goat Ramp Contest

Here is sick recap of the shredding that went down last Sunday at Future 6 Clothing’s Diamondz 2011 Mini Ramp Skate Comp at Club Ember in downtown Orlando. Of course the Goat Ramp was there to make it all possible. Filmed and Edited by TJ Gaskill.

Bradenton “Riverwalk” Skatepark

Approximate future location of Bradenton "Riverwalk" Skatepark.

 17,000 sq. ft. of concrete! That is what the new Bradenton “Riverwalk” Skatepark is getting! Now, the important part…exactly how to use that 17,000 sq. ft. Make sure to stay tuned to the Bradenton Riverwalk Skatepark facebook page for all of the latest updates. Also be sure to share your ideas about the design of the park and who you would like to see build it (Oh, I don’t know, Team Pain for example)! It is very crucial that this park be designed and built properly…there is nothing worse than a poorly designed park built by some random contractor!

Team Pain Skatepark in Bradenton? Let’s Make It Happen!

The City of Bradenton is in the process of putting the final touches on its design proposal for the “Riverwalk” project which aims to revitalize the downtown Bradenton area. According to Mike Kennedy, Executive Director of the Downtown Development Authority, in this article on recently, “…key components of the final design likely will be a lighted walkway under the Green Bridge, a family zone featuring a children’s water feature at Rossi Park, and a playground and possibly a SKATE PARK and sand volleyball courts near the DeSoto Bridge”. Hopefully, we will know whether the project is approved or not by the end of January. In the meantime, we need all of the public support that we can get! The first thing that everyone can do to get involved is join the Team Pain Skatepark for Bradenton Facebook Group. Get in there, join the discussions, and get involved! Let’s do this! Check back often for updates on the status of the “Riverwalk” project.
