Remember how exciting it was when the ramp got a new layer!! Maaaan have times changed…Looks like Allen Gibson has decided to Bowl up the entire deep end of his Masterpiece….Looks like The East Coasters have it all wrapped up now…Bucky has his concrete Heaven out West and AG has his Wooden Vert Facility on the East…You do know you can Skate this…right? (On Saturdays only) Email me.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org with DWG as the subject and I will make sure you experience all the Saturday afternoon (1 to 4) fun. Please send pictures!
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

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,
Thanks for the kind words Allen.
Allen and I were introduced by mutual friends in NYC…Who would have known he had constructed East Coast Skatings best kept secret!…Well the cats outta the bag and Allen has asked for it..hope you have a BIG couch.. he he
