Get There While You Can.

I moved to Louisville, KY a little over 7 years ago. I would say that I found this ditch within the first month or two of me living here and have been waiting for it to be dry since. It's got everything you'd want in a ditch: smooth ground, perfectly pitched walls with tranny at the bottom, plenty of flat, and amazing hips, gaps, and ledges in it. It's also got this wallride.

When my wife and I bought our house 4 years ago, I was psyched because this ditch was less than a block from it and I knew that I'd get a daily look at whether or not it was dry. It never was.

Until a week and a half ago. I got a call on my way home from work that there were a few guys skating it so I rushed home and grabbed my gear. Cole had been killing it all day and volunteered to jump up and do this axle stall again for a photo. I don't love the photo except for the fact that after waiting for 7 years I finally got to shoot something in this ditch.
Cole Wilson, ollie up to axle smash.

Too bad you didn't get that tranny with amazing hips in the photo. He must've been quite a sight!
