MapleXO and Case-of-Bass Team Up for Portland Skateparks

MapleXO RampSkateboard recycler MapleXO joins forces with boombox maker Case-of-Bass to turn skateboards into music and a ramp that is blowing minds.

The ramp is a 4-foot tall quarter pipe covered in the colorful maple wood scraps of skateboard manufacturing. To match the loud colors, the entire ramp is a high-tech boombox and was the centerpiece of Portland’s National Go-Skate-Day event, GoSkatePDX.

Ezra Cimino-Hurt, owner of Case of Bass breaks it down, “The ramp has a 400w digital amplifier pushing 2 Cerwin Vega 15” PA drivers, a pair of 4” midrange speakers, and a 15” PA horn DeathBox. There are switchable 3.5mm stereo input and Bluetooth inputs. It runs off a fully rechargeable NiMh battery system with smart charger and secondary power supply for AC use. Did I mention it goes to 11?”

Along with its high quality sound system and beautiful recycled skateboard wood skin, the ramp is built to be skated.

Lindsay Jo Holmes, owner of MapleXO explains, “The pool coping and the smooth transition makes it the perfect ramp to skate… although, feeling the music come through the ramp as you skateboard across pieces of skateboards… that’s what makes this ramp a treasure.”

In addition to the music-bumping quarter pipe, MapleXO + Case-of-Bass are making a personal sized boombox out of the recycled skateboard wood with similar qualities in sound and aesthetic. Three of these boomboxes and the quarter-pipe are being auctioned off along with a gallery full of other skate-themed art pieces at Gallery135 through the month of July. All proceeds from the auction are being donated to help build Portland’s next public skate park.
