mikevallely The Ramp In The Woods

We heard about a ramp in the woods
By the Brunswick Square Mall

Under the guise of being normal teenagers seeking social rituals at the mall — Kevin's mother dropped us off
She said she'd pick us up in a few hours

We were not seeking social rituals
We were seeking a ramp in the woods

We walked in one door of the mall and out another
Across the highway and into the woods

Through the bramble, where there was no path
We cut our way using our boards as machetes
A hazy dusk descended upon us
Seeping down through the autumn trees

We were lost and about to give up
When we heard it…
Faint in the distance — Like a blade being sharpened on leather
The now unmistakable sound of urethane on plywood
We started running in the direction of the sound
Into a clearing
And there it stood
Shining in the imminent darkness
The ramp in the woods

One lone skater stood on the small deck of the ramp
Bernie O’Dowd
He hadn’t been expecting us
But he was glad that we’d found him
Grateful that there were seekers

With reckless abandon
We took our first ever rides on a ramp
Beaming light and warmth
into the cool darkness surrounding us
We could see our breath
And steam rose off of us, through our sweatshirts
And it seemed right

The riddle of the ramp we had no ability to solve
We were just glad to be lost in the enjoyment of the question

Back through the black trees
Across the highway
To the false glow of the shopping mall
We returned
Initiated and forever changed
By what seemed like a dream

The ramp in the woods

Normal Mike Vallely
mikevallely Beyond Influence: Rodney Smith @shutnyc Tom Groholski, And Jim Murphy @woundedkneeskateboards "I skated with Jim at the Barn Ramp mostly, but there was another epic session out at Magic Skatepark, which was this 1970’s style asphalt snake run in Pennsylvania. It was just one of those all day skate into the dusk sessions, and just being around Jim that day was a true privilege. Being around people who live and breathe skateboarding, guys like that, you just bask in it, bask in just being in their presence. Jim Murphy couldn’t Ollie? Who cares. He fucking ripped. It was a privilege just skating with him. I always felt I got better just being around him.” Read the complete article by Kyle Duvall @parkingblockdiaries on my website:

mikevallely STREET PLANT

To us, skateboards aren't some soulless product you buy at the mall… They aren't just some means to an end… They are an end in themselves. They are alive and have spirit -- The beginning of everything!

I am soul satisfied to be working with my friend @kristiansvitak Master Skateboard Craftsman @professorschmitt and my daughter @emilyvallely on bringing @streetplantbrnd to life!!!! Thanks for your support!

chikamoochi Holy smoke! Just came to know that Vallely and Svitak have teamed up once again, and saw Mike V. holding what it seemed like a reissue of his New Deal elephant deck. SICK!! I'm buying it. もしかしたらニューディールの頃のバレリーの板が再発されるかも(?)ヤバイなあ。出たら買うな、こりゃ。#mikevallely #newdealskateboards #kristiansvitak 2d
  •   lazybonez7 おはようございますm(_ _)mバレリーから返事きたら面白いのに笑 1d
  •   chikamoochi @lazybonez7 ありゃ?本人からの返事が消えているまあまあキワドイ内容だから消したのかも。いいね!にはあるでしょ? 1d
  •   lazybonez7 わぉ!返事きてたんですね!!スゴい!!掻い摘んでで結構なんで教えて下さいm(_ _)m 1d
  •   lazybonez7 エレファントは無くなっちゃうんですか? 1d
  •   chikamoochi @lazybonez7 本人によればディストリビューション会社からディストリビューション会社に売られるような形で自分はエレファントのオーナーシップを失ったそうです。ブランドが無くなるかどうかについては明言していなかったけど、自分はもう関係ないと言ってました。 1d
  •   lazybonez7 …ありゃ〜ホントに色々あるんですね〜こりゃ、今のうちにエレファント買っておこうかな笑 1d
  •   chikamoochi @lazybonez7 ね。ストリートプラントは90年代初頭好きにはウハウハな感じですけどね。農場の板も限定だけどリイシューされるらしいし。 1d
  •   lazybonez7 エレファント、せめてビデオ出して欲しかったなぁ〜そうそうジェイソンアダムスも合流するんですか!?それはそれで楽しみですね〜農場デッキはLTD100でもうソルドアウトっぽいですね… 1d

iriscon Many of my close friends know of my involvement with the Vallely family over the last few years. There have been some ups and downs along the way and today was definitely something to be proud of. Last night we posted the first limited run of the Barnyard reissue and I watched as orders came in from all over the world. By the time the official announcement went up half the boards had already been sold and the second half sold out soon after. Thanks to everyone who bought one of those boards for supporting something I truly believe in.

The weed that won't die.
The fight that won't stop.
The session that never ends.

Thanks to everyone who bought one of our boards today... They sold out in less than a half hour... We are truly humbled! Thank you!
The next round will be available in a few weeks and then in the very near future at skate shops everywhere.
