Ditches

 

The ditches of our youth were so amazing back then. Once you mastered one trick in them you felt like you owned that hole in the ground and gave you the confidence to go there at any time and shred. I had a ditch like that up on this hill, it was a full snake ditch with hips and coping (actually a sprinkler line) on one side. It used to be a pretty good hike to get there but as developments occurred around the area the hike got shorter and shorter. It’s in a weird spot that most would not even think twice about and since its at the top of the hill nobody looks down. It’s maintained its shape for over 20 years and the last time we went there it was still very skateable. During our last venture out there we brought with us some qwik crete to fix some of the wear and tear from throughout the years. I haven’t been there in a while and always think if the next time I go there will there be a big pile of cement down the middle so nobody can skate?  Even worse will other skaters be there because they heard the stories and went to see if the legend was true.
