Make Any Ledge Skateable In 30 Mins

Recommended Posts

Make any ledge skate able in roughly 30 mins

your gonna need 3-4 tools

1. A Rub-Brick http://www.wagmanmetal.com/pro_tools/rub_brick.asp

2. a pry bar(depending if there's caps or not) http://www.bosstoolsupply.com/productimages/grip/60238.jpg

3. Fast Drying Clear Lacquer http://www.toolstation.com/images/library/...ebbig/44132.jpg

4. Wax

Description

 

1. A Rub-Brick is a concrete sanding stone pretty much, It's used to remove form marks from concrete. When taken to a rough ledge it grinds down the concrete to eventually make it smooth. Also works well at smoothing out chips and smoothing out worn out pool coping.

 

You can find a rub brick at ace hardware in the states usually, up here in Vancouver I had to go to a specialty masonry supply store after calling around. They'll run you between $15-$30(cdn dollar).

 

2. Crow Bar

If the ledge has caps/ knobs/ skate stoppers that should be pried off, (self explanatory)

 

3. Fast drying clear lacquer

Once your ledge is sanded smooth, the lacquer provides a smooth seal over the ledge. This is what they use on pool coping to make it grind easier.

 

You can get it from any hardware store, for around $4 a can (cdn dollar)

 

4. Wax

After your ledge is sanded and lacquer is dry put some wax on see how it grinds, if the ledge is still grippy you didn't sand it enough with the rub-brick. But you just need to add more lacquer or wax extra

 

(it all depends on the situation and how heat it is, sometimes a quick rub-brick sanding and a dose of heavy lacquer will make the ledge skate able but a bit rougher)

Steps

1. Rub down ledge with Rub-Brick do edge, top and side to get a complete cover for all tricks (grinds, blunts, slides)

2. Take a towel or piece of clothing and dust off the ledge (you don't want any dust in you laquer)

3. When your ledge or coping is cleaned off start spraying the laquer, edge, top and side

4. Keep spraying you want the laquer to be sitting up off the ledge so it can sink into the concrete and give it a nice coat of laquer

5. once dried the pool coping is done and ready to be skated but a ledge should be waxed.

6. wax the ledge shouldnt take more than 5 minutes to get the ledge nice and buttery

 

I'll be posting pictures soon, I'll be fixing up a ledge tomorrow.

 

If you have questions in the mean time post em. This works really well and doesn't require much work

If someone owns the property you are doing this on they can get you in trouble for vandalism

Nobody knows what spot you're talking about, so how can anyone give you an answer as to how someone there will react? You're committing the crime of vandalism, you make your own judgement on whether or not it's possible to do it and not get in trouble.
