REMEMBER THE TUNNEL!!
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!!!

SKATEBARN'S NEW TEAM!!
New Coping Gets Toasted......
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!!!
Check out their tour story @.... thegayocean.blogspot.com
