DIYin’ it…

DIY and community building...

since we started the DIY project at the York spot, a few rad things have occurred... we have worked together to build some stuff with concrete... we have inspired others to build and add-on... we have made a place for locals to learn how to skate (other obstacles than a manny pad)... on that note, we have also seen some misuse and abuse of the spot we have built... lots of trash and debris from destruction and carelessness... it took the owner of the property to come out (and luckily one of the homies was at the spot when he was there) to the spot and say he will "shut it down" if it doesn't get cleaned up... again, we came together and cleaned it up... not only was this cool to see, but it was the right thing to do... we started it, so we gotta maintain it... not a big deal...

we have already met a few people who skate the spot all the time and have even brought obstacles, added things, poured some concrete, and have fixed our original obstacles... this has been the coolest part of the entire process so far... it seems like a good group of shredders have seen what is possible at the spotĀ and they are already helping... to the homies that have helped so far, know that you are inspiring others with your help and motivation... it may seem simple and insignificant to go to an old foundation and drink beer while pouring concrete, but it isn't... the action of doing something productive in an area of town that has been disregarded for so long is inspiring... we will bring good energy and vibes to this spot...

the summer has only begun... we will continue to build and enjoy this spot until we get the boot or it is renovated... if you want to help out, email us at noloveskateboarding@gmail.com... we will communicate with you on what days we will build, what needs to be worked on, and/or what obstacles we could build there! we also need all the help we can get with upkeep of the spot... if you can clean up when you shred there... the dumpster has been put back, so cleaning up is easy... please bring a broom to the spot every visit... a little sweeping every time will go a long way to get rid of the shitty rocks/pebbles/debris everywhere...

Denver has such a great skateboarding scene, but not much when it comes to DIY... this spot has potential to be amazing... let's work on it all together... it's not "our" spot... we didn't start it to claim it... we started it to inspire others... it has worked so far... put in your work and reap the benefits!

see you out there...

peace and noLove...
