DIY is not just a phrase to be thrown around, it’s the very foundation of skateboarding. DIY is what created skateboarding. The term multi-use may not have been created by skateboarders, but we have found a way to perfect the concept. Benches, ledges, railings, and pools were all designed with specific function. Skaters had their own ideas.

The world is a playground, you just have to have know how to use it.

Most skate spots carry a shelf like similar to milk, so it’s best to get on them enjoy them for as long as possible. It’s rare that spots become heirlooms, to be passed down for generations. Manicured and added down as time goes on.

Yards from a Pennsylvania Interstate but miles from anyone’s radar sits one of the best skate parks that was never designed for skateboarding. It’s free, you don’t have to wear pads, and you can listen to Mercyful Fate as loud as you want.

For years skaters have been riding the bowled, concrete water spillway that is the Dust Bowls, adding simple nuances here and there, QuickCrete, angle iron, parking blocks etc.

Having been designed for one purpose and refined for another while never jeopardizing it’s original function. You can call it multi-use, you can call it adaptation. But it’s just skateboarding. And it’s just perfect.

Too cool…looks like yesterday as opposed to a decade ago. I still have my Thrasher Skate Mag Cassette knocking around as well.

Rumor has it Derek can do some frontside marvel  on one of those walls.

Patrick is a Jerse skater from back in the day. We met cyberironically over some  JT Murphy pics emailed to me by Ken Salerno there was PG in the folder as well. Since then I have checked out Patricks Totally and they have become my new favorite post modern band of gypsy skate company on the block from New Jersey…hands down. I will post some more pics of their crew for sure but head over to the Totally website and check it out for yourself they all kill it,and the videos are hosted on the site so there are some cool tunes that have not been wiped out by the likes of youtube.

Here is some more from Patrick:

Totally –   It really was one of those funny things… it began as a conversation between me and a good friend of mine, Dave Wasnak, just talking about how cool it would be to do something like design t-shirts or something, and eventually those conversations led to the idea of making boards.   And then eventually we spent enough time talking about it that we just decided to go ahead and take a shot at it.
I had skated for 5boro from it’s inception in 1996 until 2002, and that whole experience was amazing.  In the early days of 5boro, everyone involved played a role in its development.  It was not much different from what I’m doing now in that it’s just a bunch of friends skating and creating something we think is great.   I try not to get caught up in industry hype, and clever bullshit.  I really just enjoy the whole process of making a brand I think is cool, and I enjoy skating our boards.   We really do just have a lot of fun with it.   My partner, Dave, is about as good a business partner as anyone could hope for, so even though we are really hacking our way through the business side of things, it’s a lot easier when you have a solid person with a lot of good ideas to help along the way.  Now we just need someone to do sales for us, because we are horrible at pushing stuff! haha
