DIY projects #2 – a miniramp in the woods
some passionate guys use raw and semi-raw materials to build, transform, or reconstruct magical things. they also implement and establish them into the natural or/and man-made environment – take cement, garbage, debris, sand, water, wood, planks, concrete mixer, screws and a screwdriver, go out and craft something for the good of others, a social benefit.
so get your ass off the couch and conquer a wasteland next to your neighbourhood. abandoned industrial wastelands are adventure playgrounds for those wiling to metamorphose plane areas into gray, romantic skatespots. let’s help city planners to take down the walls they build around us. all you need is flying around on the streets around your corner. gather those materials and a bunch of friends, donor your sweat blood and dirt – now!
this series is about fellowship and a world wide community. it’s about you!
as far as I can remember the project and it’s funding started with a cake sale in the park. my beer friend tobi is incurable passionate about skateboarding and constructing things, that he can’t barely hold his feet/hands still. this guy is capable of building almost everything, no, literally everything you can imagine out off the stuff he finds.
the ramp seen here, was built in a nice, but fancy and nearly completely gentrified neighbourhood in dresden. ok, the spot is not the bush, but idyllic as hell. it’s an oasis for all, who feel the need of escaping from the big city trouble.
funny fact: we presented our project to officials, in order to raise some money and named the whole thing ‘FACK2012 (for all cool kids)” – you
shouldhave seen their faces… sneaky, sneaky.
long story short: if you ever happen to visit the east of germany, hit the ramp and ask for tobi – you’ll love both!
