Recently, Red Bull Detroit and community advocates in the heart of the city completed a DIY skatepark, appropriately entitled the Wig. Formerly a city park of sorts, the Wigle Recreation Center had fallen into a state of urban decay, due to the financial crisis that has plagued Detroit for some time.
But as we all know, where there is a will, there is most definitely a way. Thanks to volunteers and hundreds of hours of dedicated construction work, the Wig offers skaters a dope place to congregate, without the hassle of getting kicked out by security. Full article on Stupiddope.com.
Although the subpar stock wheels made for a slower ride on the rough pavement I can’t wait to make Big Wheels 3 on this wizard intuition carbon setup.
It’s fast, it’s stable and it makes the experience of skating a lot different than what I’m used to. It will take a while to transition out of my hockey shorter frame quick footed style of skating… but I’m already starting to go crazy thinking about the possibilities. – Joey McGarry.
Elliot Stevens and I have been going out for sessions in the streets of Manchester and managed to gather up a sick amount of clips to share with you.
Elliot’s potential and determination is amazing. We go out, have a chilled skate, come across some mad gap or rail and Elliot will just straight up smash it!
A lot of these clips are NBDs (never been done), even a high majority of the spots have never been skated. I’ve had the privilege of knowing Elliot for about 10 years now, he has always been on a different level than most at skating (and probably general life too). LocoSkates presents to you the main man himself: Elliot Stevens. – Alex Burston.
Like most riders who are on tour, Fredrik Anderson also longs for home. He recently visited his family and friends in Eskilstuna (Sweden) for a week, and being back home always means paying a visit to ZeroOnesix Skatepark, where the night session went down. – Igor Jovanovic.
