In this video, Keen ramps took an old handrail they had lying around from a Diamond x ComplexCon street course a couple years back and installed it at a perfect 8 stair in LA county and then invited a bunch of their Pro/ Am skater homies to come throw down on it for a chance to win cash.
Due to the oversized nature of the pallets that Keen ships their mini ramp kits on, freight providers require that the shipments be hand unloaded by our customers. They realize this may sound like a daunting task but keep in mind it is the best way to ensure the contents of your mini ramp kit arrive in good condition and it will alleviate any delays from the pallets getting stuck at shipping terminals.
With my knee healing up a bit I wanted something fun to skate and get back into the groove! Bryan mentioned building a box so this is our creation. We didn’t have the right angle iron but we put it on anyway and it instantly got ripped off from a FS 50-50 (I wasn’t filming at that time so I missed it) so we skated it as a manuel pad/ ledge. Hope you guys are doing well! – JAWS
