James Hedrick is our Lead designer and supervisor of concrete projects, he is obviously pretty slick on a skateboard aswell.

So, our quality control section highlights our crew members testing their work.  Here you see concrete crew member Jack Balerud testing a bowl in Gunnison Colorado before it was finished.  The guys always make sure it all works before it is finished.  Photo from Sean Kelly.

FIELD REPORT: Bradenton Florida Skatepark

The Team Pain progress continues down south even though we are still ripping in Colorado.  This year is going to be crazy for Team Pain’s crew. This is what we have been doing in Bradenton Florida next to the water.  The weather hasn’t been too harsh in the last week or two so hopefully the crew hasn’t burned up yet.  Click the photos for a bigger look!

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!
