Skateboarding, roller blading and BMX riding are all awesome forms of extreme sports which are not only great to watch but also help promote a healthy active life. However, there are a few costly downsides to these sports!
What is a Grind?
One of the most popular to perform and watch stunts which skaters and BMXers accomplish is the grind.
Grinding can be performed in many different ways using either the steel pegs or pedals on a BMX, the deck or trucks of a skateboard or the chassis on roller blades.
Unfortunately the best places to grind, such as the edges of walls, benches, handrails etc are often made of costly decorative materials such as marble, granite, stone or stainless steel!
Skate Stoppers: Speed bumps for walls and rails
The most effective way to prevent skaters using these areas in such a way is to install skate stopper devices.
Skate stoppers are generally made from steel, aluminum, or even plastic and are used on walls and rails at intervals to break of the long smooth edge which lure in skaters.
Installation of Skate Stoppers
If you are installing skate stopper style devices on a new wall or rail, all that is generally needed are a few holes to be drilled for anchoring and strong adhesive applying to fix them in to position.
Skate Stoppers Save Money
Replacing granite or marble slabs which have suffered damage from skaters and BMX riders can cost $10,000’s, where as fitting anti skate protection can cost significantly less.
Skaters Don’t Get Angry!
If there are any skaters out there who are upset about the prospect of their local skate spot receiving skating deterrents, why not contact your local authority and ask them what they plan to do with all that money they have saved by fitting skate stoppers? Perhaps they could make a dedicated skatepark?
