Steve Rodriguez once said, “In the shadow of the Brooklyn bridge lies a paradise for so many that the rest of the world is blind to”. Sick skate spots are discovered in their awesome rawness, hidden under bridges, off ramps and uncreative eyes, offering a state of badass terrain  like the greats of Brooklyn Banks. 3 blocks of perfect sequence benches pillars and stair rails. bklynbanks.1.21.10.-540x405The Embarcadero with the San Francisco EMB crew  who kept it real doing some sick craziness of the Little 3, grinding over traps that might catch your back wheel and get you pitched down the step.Dope spots like this have seen popularity rise to epic proportions gaining the legit respect of becoming some of the best skateparks. Many our a shadow of its original incarnation due to the landscape being sacrificed to the modernization of the cities it resides in. Burnside Skatepark is one of the exceptions, protected from the raining Portland weather a no-mans land with empty lots and easy access to the passing freight trains offered a clandestine gem. Located Underneath the Burnside Bridge on the east side of the Willamette River, everything is burly. Multiple hips, gaps, speed lines, bowls. Created by skateboarders without permission later sanctioned by the city gets revamped every year from the crazy Halloween night it was created. With the blood and sweat that skaters pump into these spots, these simple open areas transcend into their legendary statues. Locals with out of town visitors push the limits of technical street skating to new heights, become proving grounds, learning grounds, epitomizing the drive and creativity of the deep culture in skateboarding.  To check out more on this badass spot click below
