REMEMBER THE TUNNEL!!

Back in 2004 when most had not even thought to mix up concrete and trowel out ramps under a roof this place off Broadway and Mound Street was hive for a core group of vigilantes who had a vision.

Now "The Tunnel" is gone just like the "Tennis Courts" and soon to be wrecked in the next 2 years will be the park under the bridge in St. Louis, "Kings Highway".
Hermann's Hole will remain!! And with it the inspiration from all concrete skatepark DIY will keep their memories alive!! There are still plenty of visions for projects out there in the ditches, woods, alleys, bridges, and vacant buildings... So get out there and do it because no one is gonna do it for you!!!

If your not doing any thing constructive... Put on your mask... Grab a shovel... Get out here and build!!!

New Coping Gets Toasted......

Wrex Cook and the Toast Skateboards Team was in ST. Louis last weekend!!! A late night camp skate went down at the Hole!!!


I gave permission to skate the new keys a bit early.... My experimental mason mix combined with some Toasty shallow end power grinds they managed to rip the new bricks right off!!! The next morning I woke to see they cleaned up and swept the bowls.... I know if they had the time and materials they would've gladly masoned the bricks back on.... No worries mates!!! Come back soon!!!
