This team of girls and boys from Indianna came to the Hole and shredded last weekend... They were very polite, brought their own food and drinks, donated cash for crete, and packed their trash when they went home... Nothing bad could be said about the Bloomington crew... Thanks to Ryan Smith, Rhett Skateboard Shop, Shoe Box Skateboards, and all the others... All are welcome back anytime!!

Marble Falls....


If you go down to Marble falls Arkansas all you'll find is an abandoned amusement park, a suspected gay hotel/bar, and an old square pool in a closed down camp ground with plenty of pool coping to carry out...... If you come to Hermann Missouri you'll find marble wallride.

A Bowl of Soup Production, featuring the building of the skateplace we call "Hermanns Hole". Moving timelapses of the grading, forming, and concrete pours from the first 3 1/2 years. Sessions captured over the years of the builders are featured throughout. Many visitors from all reaches of the country to this country skate getaway have helped the terrain reach over 100 yards of organic flowing crete. JP Kraus the landowner and curator solely funds this haven, and throws an annual party to pay tribute to the skate gods. Thank You to all whom have contributed time and effort to help HH get to where it is! Special Thanks to Terry Kraus, Jp, Show me Pools Chris and Michelle, Rob Dixson R.I.P. , Cobra Kyle, Deaf Brian, Pat, Hippie Chris, Zac, No Coast Brian, Crandall, Simon, and the KHVTights. This was made for documenting the great experience, learning how to build rad skate stuff, and to inspire all who want to build their own! Enjoy!
