Weedmaps and Brooklyn Projects recently joined forces to restore a legendary but worn mini-ramp to its former glory. With the help of old school professional skateboarder Eddie Reategui, the new Brooklyn Projects ramp is now ready to shred.
Skateboarding was born in Southern California from influential surfers who wanted to ride concrete waves when the ocean went flat. True to surfing roots, skate shops have remained a cultural hub, inspiring riders with ideas, new styles and music.
Located in the heart of Los Angeles, Brooklyn Projects (BP) is a respected skate shop, streetwear boutique, and art gallery. BP was founded in December 2002, by Dominick DeLuca, former pro-BMXer, avid skateboarder, record company executive, and MTV VJ.
Eddie Reategui of Dagger Skates is a veritable legend in the skateboarding community. He was mentored under the auspices of Stacy Peralta back in the ’80s and was even recruited to Powell-Peralta during their pop-culture era, making Eddie the ideal builder for this epic project.
Congratulations to the build team for restoring this Los Angeles legend.
