Ollie World Skate Park

Found out there are ramps in Conchohocken last Friday.

The park is located at 707 Conshohocken Rd Conshohocken, PA 19428.

All of the ramps are fac­ing the grass. I man­aged to ride over the humps (seen on left) on my road bike. Does not look like the equip­ment gets much use. Maybe they would donate to a local for their dri­ve­way. Call 610 – 834-​​0845.

Deathbowl to Downtown doc­u­ments the shift in skate­board­ing pri­macy from the parks and the pools of sunny California in the 70’s to the gritty streets of New York in the 90’s. This tran­si­tion also fore­tells the recent hybrid uptake of skate­board cul­ture in Harlem and other com­mu­ni­ties of color.

PopRally Presents an evening of skate videos

skate videos

In honor of the MoMA ret­ro­spec­tive Spike Jonze: The First 80 Years, PopRally has invited pro­ducer and pho­tog­ra­pher Patrick O’Dell (of Epicly Later’d) to cre­ate a spe­cial com­pi­la­tion of sem­i­nal skate­board videos from the 1980s to today. Jonze, whose own con­tri­bu­tions to the genre will be fea­tured, notes that, “Skate videos have been a big influ­ence and a big part of what I’ve done for a long time. They are how I got into film, actu­ally.” This unique screen­ing is fol­lowed by a con­ver­sa­tion with leg­endary skate­board­ers and film­mak­ers, includ­ing Lance Mountain, Jake Phelps, Ty Evans, Spike Jonze, and other sur­prise guests.

Afterward please join us upstairs for a spe­cial per­for­mance by NO AGE.

The pro­gram begins promptly at 7:30.

You must be twenty-​​one or older to attend this event.

PopRally is made pos­si­ble with gen­er­ous sup­port from Jerry I. Speyer and Katherine G. Farley.

Special thanks to Nike SB, Altamont and ACE HOTEL NEW YORK for their spon­sor­ship of this event.

Beer gen­er­ously pro­vided by Colt 45

Guests of this event receive an exclu­sive limited-​​edition poster by Chris Johanson.
