DIY OR DIE
@coburnhuff floating frontside at Marginal Way on day one of our little get-together in Seattle a few weeks ago . While many of our friends were eager to go to the bar , myself and a few other dudes who had their thinking caps on jumped in the ride . I've been on enough road trips and tours to know that when you're rolling with a three ring circus you've gotta take the opportunity to break off from the crowd when you can . Marginal Way was the only spot on my list of spots to visit . I didn't do shit there except roll around trying to sort out a line and that's all I expected to do . Like any good DIY spot it:s not built in a standard cookie cutter manner . It was built by local freaks , some of whom I'm sure have put in thousands of hours of hard labor into it and they know it's not satisfying unless it's challenging . You can also never beat the homemade vibe . When I skate Channel Street I feel like I'm at home . When I skate other DIY's , I feel like I'm at a homie's house . He might not be home but it's all good . He told me where he hid the keys . When I skate other DIY spots I pick up my trash and try to act right , not because someone's enforcing rules but because I'm at a friend's house . Skateboarding doesn't belong to the companies using it's image to sell you clothes , shoes, or energy drinks . It belongs to the dudes and chicks who live for it . Who sweat and bleed for it . Skateboarding belongs to us . Once I got my licks in at Marginal Way that first day I didn't care about what else we skated . I would've had a blast just skating a red curb with the company I was keeping . I lifted this shot from @coburnhuff on account of I wasn't traveling with a modern day tracking device/phone/camera on this trip .
