As a skater, I never stop analyzing every curb, planter, ditch, gap, and set of stairs for potential skatability – even if most of these tempting street obstacles would send me back to the hospital for sure (I’ll stick to the parks, thank you).
Anyway, because I can’t stop gawking at these urban artifacts, they really stand out over time. Waxed curbs, scuffed walls, chipped paint on hand rails – it’s like Luminol on carnage to me.
So when Coop and I walked up the East side of the Ravenel a few weeks ago, I noticed that almost every skateable feature had been hit. The benches have been ground, and the cable anchors have been carved. Definitely an interesting setting for a session, and I imagine the photos were even better.
And seriously, I swear I’m not obsessed with this bridge or anything…really. I’ll post about other stuff soon, I promise!
