Not sure why they didn’t use any grip tape…
I hit up Andrew Petillo, the guy who put up this edit on the ol’ YouTube, and asked him what the deal was with this spot. Here’s the rundown from him.
“All the footy was shot in 2015. As for shortys we started building in there back in 2011. Andrew McLaughlin is the founder/mastermind behind it all. The place was an abandoned shithole with a bunch of junkies using it to squat, do drugs and etc. as of now we pretty much hold it down. On the weekends the we got volleyball players outside and other riffraff the comes out to smoke or paint. It’s open to whoever wants to come. I think we also have permission from the city these days too.”
Another piece of city turned from trash into treasure thanks to the skateboarders of Newark. Remember to support your local DIY builders wherever you may be.
The Skaters Next Door program is back for 2016! Donate today to help them reach their goal so they can give away 200 skateboards this year.
Who do these skateboards go to? Some go to less fortunate kids that cannot afford to buy their own board and individuals who participate in the skateboard lessons. Others are given to skateboarders who volunteer their time towards community service missions and volunteering for Public Square Group events.
Take a moment to donate today at the 2016 Skaters Next Door GoFundMe page.

Here’s the full length of Jeff Kutter’s Boys of Summer flick. It’s got 80s music, guns, boobs and obviously skating. The roster of skaters is so vast (Dill, Jason Jessee, Dressen, Spanky, Ellington, Koston…you get the picture) that at least a few of your favorites are in there making this the whole package.
