Nike Welcomes Ben Raybourn

)

I recall watching Ben Raybourn skating at the 1031/Landshark Dead of Winter tour stop at the now defunct Ohio Surf & Skate about four years ago.  There was a small quarterpipe built in the shop with a few pieces of plywood for a run-up with duct tape on the seams where the boards met.  It was cool to see Ben ripping and having fun with his tour-mates then and it’s great to see that he’s keeping it going now.

Berg Is The Word

Here’s some raw footage of Mike Freiberg at The Skate Kitchen.  I grabbed this from Mike’s Vimeo page but I’m not sure who did the filming.  My guess is Spencer Burdock but I may be incorrect.

Tristar Skateboards Ramp Progress

save-me-from-ordinary-tristar-ramp-01

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.
