One for the Ditch

People used to make things with their hands when nobody would do it for them.

A few mates with a few bags of cement and some stolen wood from a building site. Make a frame. Fill it with rocks. Put chicken wire over it. Mix some cement up in a wheel barrow and pour it on. Drink beer until it dries. Skate it. Repeat.

It a rough, lumpy and usually pretty ugly. But thats the charm.

Now skateparks are everywhere. Clean, smooth, un-cracked bowls and street courses popping up all over the place.

So people don’t need to get their hands dirty anymore. Not if they don’t want to.

But, some still like making things for themselves.
