288: Delaware Water Gap Vert Facility…….Allen Gibson says come one come all! Saturdays 1 to 4

Jason Oliva The House of Steam

Attention Everyone,

I have been speaking with Allen and he has expressed a willingness to cultivate an ever expanding and exciting vert scene at his DWG Vert Facility in Blairstown NJ (Which I like to think of as The Barn 2.0™) Just shoot me an email jasonoliva@gmail.com with DWG as the subject and I will make sure you experience all the Saturday afternoon (1 to 4) fun. Please send pictures!

Hi Jason,

This vid is from Sat. Allen has erected a 3.5-4 foot extension for anyone who’s up to the challenge. You will see his incredible frontside air off this thing!

Hope all is swell, Irene

ORIGINALLY POSTED JUNE 5th, 2007

Hi Jason- here are a few pics of my place – the ramp is in Blairstown NJ just
outside the Delaware Water Gap – I built it 3 years ago and it was
constructed by Team Pain and specifically Jeff Hammond – the ramp is a
smaller version of (Bob) Burnquists but with a bend from deep to shallow which
provides a very cool dynamic. 12 vert with 10.6 tranny, 13.5 on the
extensions, 7 shallow bowled corners. It is well heated for winter,
designed for natural light year round and well-maintained.

I welcome anybody who wants to come out and skate – I work in finance
during the week and my family uses this as our weekend home –

I haven’t had a moment to get myself linked into to site but I looked at it this
evening and you should be applauded for not merely a great job but you
have a real sense of the beauty of skateboarding!

all the best,

Allen

    The place looks too good to be true. Thanks, Allen for the invite, I hope to connect with you and some other long lost steam bretheren in the near future. I’m only about an hour and 1/2 away. What’s the best way to get in touch with you all?

      This looks to good to be true. I live in Blairstown. My son and I have to travel a ways to ride ramps like this (Chelsea Piers NYC, etc.). I see this post is a few years old. I hope the open invite is still offered. Let me know!

    VERT IS NOT DEAD!
    Go find Bucky’s massive backyard pool. It’s called “HEAVEN” and rightly so.
    Saddle up, cowboy!
