Have you seen our kids skate?

On a couple of occasions I've seen something going on at the skate park. I stopped to watch and was amazed at the talent of some of our kids.
I stopped in at a few skate parks in Talent and Medford because I wanted to see what the kids were doing. I've never seen anything like we have here. We have a radical park and it's only half finished.
It reminds me of the old surfer days. When I was 17 I went to Nebraska with a friend; when I came back I found my little brother at the beach with his surfer friends. One of his friends, Phil, loaned me his board and I was hooked. Everybody seemed to get along; it was good clean fun.
I watched at our skate park for a half hour or so and saw how everybody (‘the kids') encouraged each other, took turns; and the kids were very polite to each other.
I looked in from time to time as they were building the park and was surprised to see a couple young ladies on the crew. The whole crew looked to be in their 20s; two guys, and two girls. When I saw one of the girls finishing the concrete one day "that's hard work" I asked do you skate? Yup, she said. I thought so, the whole creation looks like something done by someone who knows and loves the sport. I don't know who found them but I think they found the best.
After all the years it took to get this skate park going, I'm excited and happy to see what we have.
Shotcrete is a low slump concrete that is blown onto the receiving surface after mixing with compressed air. It can be used to build retaining walls, foundation support and reconstruction, decorative walls, landscape rocks, pools, etc. The unique ability to shoot concrete onto vertical, overhead and curved surfaces allows the strength and durability of concrete to be applied in many more applications than traditional concrete. Additives, bonding agents and strengtheners give a Shotcrete foundation wall years more durability than a thinly parged cinder block wall. Shotcrete is the best choice for repairing foundations damaged by years of frost, water, and other harsh environmental concerns. Shotcrete will form a perfect bond to any existing foundation wall and can be applied below or above grade. Shotcrete can yield a compressive strength of about 4000 psi up to 8000 psi at 28 days of curing versus typical poured wall mixtures with a strength of 2500 to 3500 psi. Additionally, the greater compaction of Shotcrete achieved through the velocity of shooting the material onto the surface improves compressive strength and durability. Shotcrete is a proven, cost-effective and time saving alternative to traditional poured concrete and other concrete repairs. Shotcrete has a low water to cement ratio, low permeability and reduced shrinkage, making it the perfect choice for adding years of life to your existing concrete.
