The South Philly Bowl is one of those spots where an incredible reputation precedes the spot. Almost everyone in the City of Brotherly Love and beyond knows the tricks, the clips and the photos that have been produced in a windowless warehouse just off the beaten path. Scott Kmiec and Andrew Laputka were good enough to open the doors to Red Bull Spot Supply over the summer.
A ramp that is part engineering feat, part art installation, the South Philly Bowl fits perfectly into its tight warehouse. Vert ramp transition, bowled out corners, wallrides, and even a street course style pyramid, create a flow that’s taken years to design and produce.

The first phase of Lincoln City’s Kirtsis Skatepark was completed in the summer of 1999. Fifteen years later, this world renowned shred zone still reigns in as one of the gnarliest and most creative forms of skate-able concrete in the country. It was one of the first sanctioned skateparks Mark Scott and crew were offered outside of what they did underneath the Burnside Bridge in Portland, Oregon. It now has 5 phases with a 6th phase sometime in the future and weighs in at 40,000 square feet.
Have a look at the celebration session with Kevin Kowalski, Mark Scott, Alex Foy, Sarah Scanlan and others.
