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.

A few days ago, Chynna Weierstall and I headed up to the Secret Garden, a new DIY spot the Detroit bladers have been building, to film a few tricks on the first completed obstacle: a 14′ cement ledge with a metal edge. Here’s the few tricks we got before the rain really started coming down.
Chynna is still recovering from a separated ligament in her left ankle. She has one more surgery on it and then should be healthy by the winter.
We start work tomorrow on the next obstacle at the garden: a 5′ quarterpipe and we have extensive plans past that. This will no doubt be only the first of many SG edits. – Al Dolega.

Quoting the Queen:
Skated 5 different pairs or skates this past summer trying to find a skate i liked after my ankle got really messed up from the carbons.
