The title says it all. Grabbed from Jenkem Magazine.
After moving the shop into a larger space, Tristar Skateboards founder Jim Sakaley didn’t waste much time before he put his plan in motion to build out the shop, setup the skateboard museum with with skate related antiquities, and finally building out the large open area of the space with a skatepark.
The park is not completed but from these pictures you can tell that the figurehead of the park is well under way. The 28 foot wide spine ramp includes the main 4 foot transitions with a 6 foot setback which you can see here.
You also have a 7 foot extension on the opposing side, shown above. Will we see pool block on that extension?
There is also a curved roller running against the wall! I’m going to make the assumption that the conduit on the wall will be removed to allow some lines up on that cinderblock.
The progress all looks great so far even though there isn’t an exact date of completion for the ramp or the opening of the park. Until then you can check out the Tristar Skateboards Facebook page or Instagram feed for more info.
I headed up to the Skate Kitchen on Saturday to ride a bit and photograph whoever was ripping. Dan Medercic, JuJu Knap, and Russ Sanderson were willing to put it out there for some shots. Thanks guys!
