After tons of help from local businesses FusionSurf Skate, www.real3dnc.com, and Expressions Greenville, we were able to put this bad boy into place! Thanks to Mike Laird and Lance Lindberg at ECC Metal for the exceptional job they did on this ledge and manual pad combination! Also, a big thanks goes to Pamlico Fence Company for their fence fabrication that made this move sooooo much easier. And thank you to all the feet on the ground that helped moved this beast off the trailer! Tag #gapsnc in your footage!
Pick up a GAPS tee to make a donation towards our next obstacle.
Here’s an overview with measurements of the new ledge/manual pad combo to go out at Jaycee. Thanks to sponsors Fusion Surf Skate, Expressions Greenville and REAL 3D !!! They pitched in to get this paid for and Mike Laird is fabricating it so go give them some love. Hopefully it’ll be ready in the next couple months! Back the cause by picking up a GAPS here, Fusion or Backdoor Skate Shop
