Title: Tallahassee, FL DIY
Post by: Dan on December 15, 2013, 08:42:50 AM
Hey guys, I've been working on this DIY spot in downtown Tallahassee pretty consistently for the last year and wanted to share some pictures with everyone.

Awesome progress so far! The parking block spine looks so fun. What are your plans for expansion?

good job

This spot looks secluded enough to have a generator there for power so it's time to get the saws out and start cutting keyways. One hour of work at the bottom of your transitions and you will never have to repair them again.

Thank you so much! It's been a slow and grueling road so far. A lot of other people have helped over the last 10 months. Our project right now is using the edge of an old trampoline to make a knee high curved qp. Also we will be bowling out the corner next to the orange qp.

Yes! Cutting the line for the bottom of the transition is the next step. I am super tired of repairing the qp's we have. Gotta find someome with a generator and saw now haha.

Just wanted to do a little update of this last weekends activities. The new pump bump/nipple is killer by the way. Lots of new lines. Also check out the montage from last week courtesy of Anomoly Unlimited.
