Boardertown Coverage

Check out this video from one of the wood crew’s most recent projects, Boardertown Skatepark, Arkansas. This indoor park has been getting a lot of web coverage, and we were hyped on this recent video of the Endurance team getting a session in. Along with this video, Boardertown also was featured in Urban Magazine in an online article. Boardertown also has been giving the park a little extra flair by adding some art throughout the entire park. Peep it!

SURF EXPO January 2012

Next weekend, January 12th through the 14th, Team Pain once again has joined forces with Surf Expo to put on another epic skate event. This contest has all the right ingredients to be one of the most fun contests to skate all year: a brand new street course, air conditioning while you skate, girls walking around in bikinis, crowd giveaways, real skateboarders running the event, and cash for the winners. Also, this is a reminder that the only way to compete in this contest is if you are registered with Surf Expo. See you there next Thursday to kick it off!

New SPoT Course 2011

We are once again giving Skatepark of Tampa it’s yearly makeover within the next couple weeks. Their Ramp Armor is ordered and on the way, meaning the construction will begin shortly. We are honored to get to build the course for such a core skateboarding event each year. This is actually the fifth year in a row we have built the course for SPoT. SPoT is always changing up the course to keep things fresh for each one of their huge events. Be sure to check back for some SPoT reconstruction photos soon!
