Welcome to the third episode of Jenk TV!
We grew up watching MTV and Adult Swim shows Beavis and Butthead, The Tom Green Show, and Tim and Eric, so we thought skateboarding could use a dose of that goofball editing.
One thing that’s great about New York City is that it’s under constant construction, meaning you can pretty much always find some scrap wood and metal to work up a little somethin’ somethin’ to keep you skating.
We got together with our car-owning construction-guru Mola to scavenge the town for stuff we could “borrow” to make a box. With a little help from a random man dressed as Mario, we were able to construct this actually super-solid angle-iron ledge that we dropped off at TF West for anyone and everyone to skate and enjoy.
Take a page out of our book and build something for yourself during this quarantine. You won’t regret it (unless you smash your finger with a hammer or something).
DOES SIZE MATTER?
I hit up physical therapist Dr. Kyle Brown for some insight on whether or not our height plays a noticeable role in how we skate.
