Bay Area Parkour

Train Hard - Stay Humble

so lately I've been hearing a lot about this parkour vision and have to admit the longer and more often I practice parkour the more I seem to see every day stuff different ways. Like where I live for example, there are public bathrooms that I have been walking by for the last few years and up until now that's just what they were (public bathrooms). but I've noticed that I now can see two or three good runs with them. and most likely will be able to pick out a few more things that can do with them with time. I even catch myself driving around and looking at places that I have been many times and seeing runs that I never noticed before. which brings me to one of my points I was hoping to build a small course here in the marina where I live. But now it seems easier to find spots to practice in the environment that it would be to build one. I know this might sound silly but that is how it feels. Maybe what I'll do is find a spot that I like and replicate it. If anybody has any ideas on how I could build a good spot let me know.

Aero and I had a looong thread going on artificial and/or portable obstacles in "another" forum...
I'll try to dig out some info for which we can claim intellectual property... lol!

Good thinking.
...ok: forget all the discussions done in the past for a sec (talking to you, Aero...).

How would peeps like this?

...I imagine the whole thing being 12'x8'x8', but I'm gonna be more precise.
You can Oleg Vorslav in it!!!!!
I'm working on getting:
- supplier, availability, costs
- eventually possibility of testing it beforehand

Would anybody pitch in money for it?
Would anybody have a (safe) place to store it, once disassembled?
Whoa, pretty sweet. Looks like it might take a long time to set up and take down, though. What's that thing actually supposed to be used for?

Depending on the cost, I'd chip in for it.
...ehmm... handrails?
=)

Custom fittings sliding on aluminum pipes and snagged tight


I guess that it should take two capable assemblers and about half an hour, for the whole thing...
i like it. i will chip in for it. what's it made out of?- looks like it could be shaky.
...metal, but still that's a good point.
Maybe it needs to be anchored to the ground...
(with some Ω-shaped metal plates... -like I know what I'm talking about...lol-)
i throw some wood platforms there too. like the kswiss setup at usf
hmm..... you could probably get some good underbar practice on that thing
...and all sorts of vaults...
