Village Bowl Ct, Falls Creek VIC 3699, Australia
Yeah wooooh....first comment?
I like it looks nice
This mini is insane to skate, so much fun!!!!
i wish i could have something like that near me
that looks fucken fun
FUCKIN CHEAP CUNTS CAME AND STOLE THAT FROM HARRIETVILLE DURING THE OFF SEASON. THEY ASKED THE NON SKATING LOCALS IF THEY COULD HAVE IT AND OF COURSE THE LOCAL "HICKS" ALL HATED IT SO THEY SAID SURE TAKE IT AND THE ONLY SKATER IN THE TOWN AT THE TIME WAS PROP TO STONNED TO CARE! ITS A FUCKIN CRIME I TELL YA! THAT IS THE FUNNEST MINI RAMP EVER AND SOME SOUL "CORE" FUCKA STOLE IT! BULLSHIT!
do all those bolts stop ya or anything?
this mini is gnarl dawg... its a shame it left hooterville. it was built by the locals with blood sweat and tears back in the day. be up at falls soon to rekindle the majic.
DAMN STRAIGHT ITS A FUCKN SHAME IT LEFT THE 'VILLE. THE LOCAL SKATERS ( ALL 4 OF THEM ) FUND RAISED $1,400, HAND PICKED THE MATERIALS AND BUILT THE RAMP WITH THE HELP OF THEIR DADS AND A FEW MT HOTHAM CREW.
THE ONLY REASON THE RAMP GOT TAKEN AWAY WAS BECAUSE OF A RED HAIRED MOLE WHO LIVED DOWN THE ROAD FROM THE RAMP COMPLAINED ABOUT IT BEING TO NOISY, EVEN THOUGH IT ONLY GOT SKATED AT TOTALLY REASONABLE TIMES DURING THE DAY ( AND PRETTY MUCH ONLY DURING THE SNOW SEASON MONTHS 0 AND HER KIDS FANGED AROUND MAKING NOISE ON THEIR DIRT BIKES ALL DAY IN THE SAME AREA!
THE COUNCIL THEN TURNED AROUND AND SAID THEY WOULD RE-LOCATE THE RAMP ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS. THIS TURNED OUT TO BE BULLSHIT AS THE RAMP STAYED IN THE SAME SPOT FOR ANOTHER 2 YEARS WITH A BUNK SURFACE AND UN-SKATEABLE.
ONE OF THE SKATERS WHO BUILT IT OFFERED TO TAKE IT OFF THE COUNCIL LAND AND RE-LOCATE IT ON PRIVATE PROPERTY AND THE COUNCIL GAVE HIM THE GREEN LIGHT AND SAID HE COULD HAVE IT, WHILE ALSO UNDERSTANDING THAT IT WOULD TAKE TIME TO BE ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH THE MOVE, FINDING THE LAND, DISMANTLING, RE-LO....ETC.
THEN..........ALONG CAME THIS SO CALLED "CORE" DUDE, SPOSE TO BE ALL ABOUT THE PEOPLE AND SHIT, ALWAYS PREACHING BOUT THE WAY OF THE"CORE", STICKING TOGETHER, COMMUNES OF "CORE" RIDERS AND ALL THAT SORT OF SHIT
.......WELL ANYWAY THIS DUDE WANTED TO TAKE THE "HARRIETVILLE" RAMP OVER TO FALLS CREEK. HE EVEN ASKED THE HARRIETVILLE LOCAL WHO HAD THE GREEN LIGHT TO RE-LOCATE HIS BELOVED, RAD, MANY CHERISHED MOMENTS, BUT WITH HIS OWN BLOOD SWEAT AND TEARS IF HE COULD TAKE IT.........FUCK NO......HE SAID DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT, ITS OURS WE BUILT IT AND WE'RE GONNA MOVE IT WHEN WE FIND A SPOT TO MOVE IT.....FUCK NO!
WELL THIS SNEAKY FUCKA, JUST WAITED TIL ALL THE SKATERS IN TOWN BUT ONE PERMANATLY STONED, USED TA BE A SKATER ( BUT GOOD GUY ). THEN HE GOES AND ASKS THE COUNCIL AND THE STONER FOR THE RAMP EVEN THOUGH HE ALREADY GOT TOLD BY ITS BUILDER "FUCK NO"...........AND...WELL YOU KNOW WHAT THE COUNCIL IS LIKE..THEY HAVE NO IDEA OF HOW IMPORTANT THIS RAMP WAS TO ITS BUILDERS AND THE FRIENDS THAT WOULD SESSION IT EVERY SPRING ALL ARVO...SO THEY GAVE IT TO HIM AND THE STONER WAS TO BUSY BEING STONED TO WORRY............ FUCK!
SO AS YOU CAN READ, THIS HASN'T, DOESN'T, ISN'T AND WON'T GO DOWN WELL WITH THE RAMPS TRUE LOCALS AND I CAN TELL YOU ONE THING, you know who you are!, YOU BETTER COME UP WITH A GOOD PLAN OF HOW THAT RAMP IS GETTING ON A TRUCK AND MAKING IT BACK TO HOTHAM AND TO THE NEWLY PURCHASED BIT OF LAND OF ONE OF IT'S TRUE LOCALS.
CAUSE IF IT DON'T THIS LETTER IS GONNA SEEM LIKE A FUCKING NURSERY RHYME!
Arnold says.....Take the ramp back to where it belongs or Arnold is gonna have to get the boys to come over!!!
TAKE THE RAMP BACK NOW DUDE!!! DO IT!!
PUT IT BACK TO WHERE IT BELONGS NOW
Hey dudes I'm the FARKIN CONT who did the hard slog to resurrect this ramp and I appreciate the respect that is coming in for such a worthy project...
The point of resurrecting the Harrietville mini was to sk8 it again... There is no doubt this is one of the best shaped minis in the country... I sk8ed it in it's hey day and this fact alone is what stokes skaters out..! It is a truly epic mini ramp and full respect has always been given to the original lads who built it in the first place...
Some facts that need to be clear is that the ramp was rotting away and somebody had to do something...
For sure Mikey D had his dibs on it for over THREE YEARS but nothing was happening from the Hotham camp because it meant a very big investment to move and resurface it...
We raised $25,000, organised 400 volunteer hours and got the support from the whole community to resurrect it at Falls with an epic surface. It now has hARD sk8 surface (sk8lite) from ARD on two bonded layers of ply that is sandwiched with floating floor foam for less noise and a bit of give. It's a damn fine sk8 experience...
I ride Hotham as well as Falls so I see no separation in the clans... Fuck the haters and support the lovers... And I will look anyone in the eye who disapproves with our quest for core balance...
As many crew know - all efforts were taken, when I suggested we resurrect it at Falls, to get the ok from all angles, especially the original crew... I believe Mikey was in Switzerland when we were lobbying the ramps resurrection and I had no luck getting any replies from a few H crew... The one's I did contact, including a few H mums, approved whole heartedly to see the ramp sk8ed again...
The bottom line is that the Harrietville Rec reserve decided not to keep it and the Alpine Shire wanted it moved as soon as possible... The best option was to resurrect it as a public facility somewhere in the Shire...
Falls was the logical destination because they have showed increasing support for boardriders with the snowpark up there... Plus the alpine resorts have been in need of sk8ing for a long time... Sk8 after snowboarding in the winter and escape the Aussie heat waves of summer and ride in the cool of the mountains...
Now the goodness of the H-mini is right at the bottom of Summit chair in the heart of vico's freeride capital... Be stoked oh mighty No Comply warrior...
All skaters contacted regarding this project agreed that the sooner we can sk8 this ramp again the better (even if it's somewhere else)... So here you have it... STOKED SK8ERS..!
So come and sk8 in the hills Mr No Comply with all ya mates... Throw that bitter negativity in the bin and be stoked that somebody is doing it for the brothers and sisters of the freeride...
We're working for more love again by planning to get a roof over the ramp next summer and then everybody has the choice to sk8 this epic mini even when it's raining...
I have to back this man Pea Ce, skated this ramp back in the day and it was dope, shame to see it deteriorate and not skate it for many years..Many great sessions with hotham and bright crew for sure..I think we should be glad that it's skateable again, yeah harrietville was defenitly the prime spot but realisticly if no action was taken it would of sat there for a long long time. It's way to expensive of a job to get it cut, craned, relocated and re-surfaced..
I give props to the effort and determination in raising funds and volunteers to get this ramp up and running again. I'll be making the effort to drive up and skate it again. And Yes we can not forget the initial effort by the locals to get it going in the first place, respect definetly given where it's due..
No comply, hope to see you up there skating and having fun like back in the day, please try and be stoked it's skateable again.
No doubt its an epic ramp if its created what you see above, shit happens sometimes, sometimes for the better, good to see a good ramp is not going to waste.
No comply and arnold just chill.. The ramp was sick at harrietville but hey it went to shit, just sitting their doing nothing! but look at it now its like a sexy blonde everyone can ride..cause of mr pea ce turned the heat up and got it to falls! fucking legend.. So now the ramp is amazing now to sk8 thanks to pea ce, let the good time's roll and the epic ramp continue! cheers
Looks like it's like Knowhere though
Fuck it's cold down their. =S brrr
lol, It's Snowing Like Crazy Down their!!!! I'de so SnowBoard this Shit up!!! lol, It may be a little hard on this Ramp. =p
this mini looks friggen sick.. and what a location, almost enough to make me move to falls..
sick mini. had many a good session on it back in the 2000 pre and post season with werhles, diesel and jimmy da bob.
a few of us hounded the Harrietville/bright council for ever and got $15000 to build a ramp.
lots of fuckn hard work not many people helping!
the ramp was finally finished and in a sick pozzie in Harrietville.
Over time the surface got fucked and not replaced coz of weather, lack of council help/interest and because of one fuck whit who constently complained about the noise.
The council constantly promised us the ramp was going to be moved to centenery park in HVille and not to touch it. and was roped of for an age
we were constantly on the cuncils back to get it goin but again no interest.
It took to long, and out of towners were trying to poach it. i offered to buy it, the council said its yours take it. Fuckn stoked!
had several phone calls from one or 2 interested in the ramp but i told them that the ramp belongs in HVille and we are hoping to get it on the go asap
a few months later when the time was nearing to begin a plan to move it the council changed there minds back to "its getting moved to centenery park"
AGAIN we Waited and fuckn waited! but just more bull shit!
i went to switzerland for a winter, other local ramp users went to there winter havens and upon return the ramp was fuckn gone to falls, and taken by the one bloke who knew the stance and the "CORE" reason why it should stay in the ville. Yes it was waisting away there but it wasnt the fuckn local sk8ers fault! we tried n tried
Time goes by ... ramp looks good, council can get fucked!, at the end of the day the ramp probley would still be a boney structure if it hadnt moved, but its still a sore spot in many a harrietville side. sk8 it enjoy it
What are the overall dimensions of this thing?
