The city of Los Angeles will be welcoming a new skate plaza to its vicinity. Rob Dyrdek, DC Shoes, and a massive donation from the dudes running Carl’s Jr. have thrown in the cash for this gem. It will all be completed late February of 2009 , later this month.
I am absolutely mind boggled as to how fast it’s the construction is going to be done. Not only that, but I didn’t even know they were working on another plaza. This one promises to have more of a regular street-spot-flowing feel to it. By the sounds of it; stairs, ledges, and benches will all be a staple in the new plaza. But there also seems to be the customization factor to it; I’m sure that means you can bring in your own obstacles as well and no one would trip on you rearranging things. Sounds pretty awesome to me and a definite add on to the many lists of skate spots I still need to skate. This new plaza will be called the Lafayette Safe Spot.
Perhaps there’s a chain of hassle free skate safe spots to come in the future? I hope so. This is a trend I could definitely get used to! For now, let our mouths water for the temptation of getting our shred on at Lafayette and maybe even go out and support Carl’s Jr. and buy ourselves a Famous Star? Mmmmm.. Yummy….
