How to Make a Beer Can Coping Ledge - DIY

Heath Burley is back and this time we’re putting our alcoholism to good use. We’re making a beer can coping ledge. You don’t have to make a ledge, you can attach the coping to any spot you want to (we discuss this as well). These things are always a work in progress. We’re not professional builders (obviously), but it’s good to share some of the knowledge we’re acquiring in real time. We also hope it’s a bit motivational for anyone that’s ever wanted to build a spot. - Cody Sanders.

In this video Heath Burley shows us how to make a basic cinder block ledge with angle iron. It requires only one tool, a caulk gun. That’s it.

Do It Yourself: $30 PVC P-Rail in 5 Minutes, with Kyle Wood + Practice Session

My old rail from the video I made years ago is no longer here. So I had to build a new PVC p-rail but with post-inflation pricing it’s about $10 these days. Still not terrible if you ask me! - Kyle Wood.

Ilia Savosin Experiments - BOTTLES P-RAIL | DIY RAIL | ROLLERBLADING | SAVOSIN AQUAMARINE

Ilia Savosin decided to make a practice rail out of water bottles. The cold helped a bit by freezing the water, but this required serious skills to grind. Ilia came with another idea later to ease the process a bit.

How to Make a Street Ledge or Curb Slide

How to Make a Street Ledge or Curb Slide

How to make a street ledge or curb slide, with Josh Acosta.

How to Make a Street Ledge or Curb Slide

Some notes by Al Dolega

  • Don’t use your rubbrick on the parts of the ledge that are already waxed. Or rather, don’t use a nice fresh rubbrick, as it will gum up the brick and make it pretty useless for any part of the ledge. What I do is, as my rubbricks wear down, I demote my worst one to “go over the waxed area” duty. Which still doesn’t do a lot, it helps smooth it out a bit, but at least I can save my good bricks for the dry parts of the ledge.
  • Quick-dry lacquer is pretty cheap and dries in 15-20min, so you can skate it in the same session.
  • Bondo-Glass is perfect for filling chunks and seams. Not too hard to work with and it’s harder and stronger than regular Bondo so it won’t flake off, and slides well.
  • Definitely mask up for the rubbricking. Everyone has masks now for obvious reasons, use them! Silica dust is no joke and will cause health problems later. If I get lung cancer I will unfortunately not be surprised, as I spent about the first 10 years of my rubbrick era not even thinking about masking up.
  • Don’t slack on the rubbricking! Once you wax you can’t rubbrick any more, so you only get one chance to get it right. I like to do the length of the brick on top (6" or so), and the width of it (3" or so) on the side, so that if you get too flat on a groove trick and you touch your outer wheels you won’t stick as hard, and so your frame won’t stick when you get into or out of soul tricks.
