Hasnt rained much in Hell Paso lately, but when it rains, it pours and they have a lot of ditches here...Here is one of the latest culverts being poured...Funny thing is, the drain culverts are better than the "skateparks" here...This is what happens when skaters get involved...

Bloody RAD that the local authorities/engineers are letting skaters do this.

Bet that is on the westside of town. I've seen several dams on that side near I-10.

Mike, tell these guys about the ditch called three mile or five mile, Dino and I skated it in 1987 and I think Dressen did a demo there in '90 or '91. That was a ditch from heaven.
