Sparkin’ Crate Slide


Sometimes a bad situation can create amazing things. These young men found one of their wheels with a flat spot–this, coupled with a good ole’ milkcrate, turned into a powerslide session and some sparkin’ good times.

Milk Crate Skate


Milkcrates and skateboards go back to the beginning for me. Playing with crates, stacking them to see how high I can ollie, and sometimes just knocking them down was the beginning of my love of the form. The misfits at American Misfits have done a series of these videos. This one just popped up on YouTube –>Fuel TV  – Milk Crate Skatin. The timing is almost perfect, after watching the video and getting motivated, buy one of these, I Heart Milkcrate skateboards.
