Winston Salem DIYWinston Salem, NC Tweet When the city of Winston Salem dropped the ball on building a legitimate skatepark for their community, Britt and the Exodus crew decided to take matters into their own hands. With $1,000 raised through #THEBUILDPROJECT, they were ready to build something that they actually wanted to skate. They found an abandoned lot that was trashed in a neighborhood that they thought wouldn’t mind them being there. They cleaned the spot up, and began building. Before they knew it, they had built two quarterpipes, a bank-to-wallride, a pole jam, a box and a euro gap. Since their build, they've gotten great feedback from the community. Members of the neighborhood often stop by to watch people skate, or to take photos. Recently, they held a BBQ at the spot and Britt Chester shot a video of everyone enjoying the new spot. Aside from getting the attention of the locals in their neighborhood, the Exodus crew has also caused quite the buzz in their town, and have made the local newspaper after raising so much money through #THEBUILDPROJECT. We'd like to extend a huge thank you and congratulations to everyone at Exodus and everybody who helped bring this spot to life. You guys are a perfect example of why skateboarding is great, and how it can bring a community together. For progress on their build, follow @exodusskateshop.
