Skating a Full Pipe with Fred Gall
On the first episode of 'Can You Skate It?,' the pro skater took VICE to an abandoned, DIY ramp in the middle of New Jersey.
For dedicated pro skaters, scoping out wild, untapped spots is part of what the sport is all about. It might be hard to track down an abandoned swimming pool or a heavenly full-pipe in the sky, but skating gnarly, one-of-a-kind stuff is as good as it gets.
On Can You Skate It?, VICE seeks out the most unique spots we can find, starting with a full-pipe in an abandoned New Jersey factory. Pro skater Fred Gall took us to the hidden gem for a session—patching a few cracks in the concrete, sweeping out some debris, and going for a big boneless on the transition.
