Concussion Ditch

* Outdoor: 'Crete
* Free
* Trannie / Street
* Rating: Dig the Ditch

One of many skateable ditches in the Albuquerque area, the Concussion Ditch has a special feature that's "worthy" [heh!] of a review on this SK8parkLIST.

The central attraction to this "not-so-skatepark" is that wedged-out spine... We didn't skate it due to of lack time, but it looked pretty good. There are certainly some big cracks to look out for, the surface isn't perfect and neither is the trannie on the banks. It *is* skateable, thou', and sometimes that's all it takes to get the job done.

Speaking of barely skatebable trannie, we'd like to take a minute to salute BLACK LABEL [yeah!!!] for that crew's good attitude about skating in general. Rather than piss and moan about who skated what handrail first, or whatever, these guys have been filming on parking blocks, jersey barriers, drainage ditches and all that. No perfect park needed, just mad love of skating and hesh dedication that spreads the stoke every time. Big props to Lucero, Svitak, Vallely, Hassan, Adams, and the rest of the criminals in that crew. You guys are rad. Keep killin' it.

Directions: Forget it... we got pics for you, but we're keeping directions strictly word of mouth on all the underground spots.
