gregs bowl.

My friend Greg is definitely keeping the DIY spirit alive.  In a barn out in the heartland of america he is building quite the masterpiece.  Four corners, two hips, roll in, wall ride, and a fun looking miniramp.  All heated by a huge wood burning stove.  The wood has a built in storage rack under teh deck.  Greg is a lineman and works hard for his living it is awesome to see someone keeping the dream alive.  He works all week, sometimes during the weekend, takes care of his son Tucker, and still finds time to work on the bowl.  He is doing it right and doing it well.  Greg asked me to draw him up some plans because he said he had no idea what he was doing.  Now, I am learning from him.  Sometimes I think I take skateboarding for granted, I learn to settle and skate what we already have. Greg gets me psyched to build and push for new stuff every time he calls me about his bowl.  I could be doing so much more.  Everyone could and we would have more stuff to skate.  Good job Greg and thank you.   Lets finish the bowl and build the vert ramp!
