If no one’s down to help you, quit moaning, pick up a shovel and a trowel, get a mix going and take measures into your own hands. Because in the end, who other than yourself knows better what you want? This main principle of masturbation also holds truth for DIY skate spot building.
DIY spots have come a long way, and since the first projects mushroomed all over the continent about ten years ago, many people have picked up amazing skills and have gone incredibly professional in shaping (their) dreams. Some projects that started out little have grown to enourmous size, some illegal sites have earned legal status, even public funding.
Nevertheless, in times of standartized TF’s of Olympic qualities DIY spots out there remain
shelters havens of freedom, refuges for true skateboarding spirit. This list is supposed to be an ode to some of those places; no particular order. Feel free to send additions or suggestions, and please make sure to go visit as many as you can. Skate and create!
