Providence East Gets Some Local Love

Brandon, FL’s online news source “Brandon Patch” has a nice article up on their website giving you some details about what’s going on with our current job at the Providence East Skatepark. Our concrete crew has been hard at work with three new parks here in Florida, Providence East being the second of the three new parks going in along the West Coast. Check out the article here that also includes some more photos, and a video of concrete crew member Chris Berry doing some quality control on the new bowl.

Backyard Paradise

Back in 2009, a young teenage FL ripper named Keith Baldassare(and his Mom) approached us about building some serious concrete transition in his backyard. Some of the Team Pain concrete crew showed up at his house (address will remain private, sorry guys), and built some of the gnarliest transitions in all of Florida. Keith’s backyard has gotten some serious attention from a ton of FL’s heavyweight skateboarders, and recently an article came out in Focus Skate Mag, giving you the rundown of this backyard paradise. We hit up the young Keith Baldassare, and got a little insight on his thoughts about his personal wonderland.

Keith, give us the run down on your backyard..

I dont know what to call it except a death pit. Haha, it’s a bowl built into my block wall fence. Its like six foot with loads of vert.

Who designed it, and who built it?

I designed it, and it was mainly Josh and Tony. Most of the crew was here on the pour days though, and I made some of the pool coping and helped with as much prep work as I could.

What’s your favorite piece of it to skate?

My favorite part is the bank wall, it’s gnarly but not too hard to do tricks on compared to everywhere else.

Who rips it the hardest aside from yourself?

The people that rip it hardest are Matt Call, Mike Barnes, Nick Murphy, Poptart, Tyler Coffman, Joe Storm, a ton of others as well. Too many to name.

Thanks Keith, glad to hear you’re doing well, and that you and your backyard are getting some well deserved coverage!

Shotcrete Magazine Cover

Team Pain made the cover of Shotcrete Magazine (Fall 2009). Inside, the article documents how shotcrete is the crucial component in custom skate construction and is the most desirable and effective way to place concrete in the industry. If you ever wondered how concrete adheres to an over-vert surface, this article is for you.

Team Pain Bad Brains Meeting

It’s very rare that the Team Pain wood and concrete crews are in the same location at the same time. With the wood crew doing some work at SPOT and the concrete guys finalizing the New Tampa skate park, Mr. Payne had to take the opportunity to get the whole clan together. Enter the “Bad Brains” show for some serious male bonding and everyone had a great time!
