CHANGES.>>REPORTER: I DIDN’T QUITE LEARN HOW TO SKATEBOARD BUT I DID LEARN HOW TO STAND HERE AND LOOK SUPERCOOL WITH A SKATEBOARD. WE DO HAVE A GUY HERE WHO WILL SHOW US HOW IT IS DONE. HE IS GOING OFF AN 18 FOOT RAMP. DIDN’T LAND THAT ONE BUT TRUST ME, THERE ARE VERY TALENTED SKATERS OUT HERE. >>PART OF TOWN IN A NEIGHBORHOOD YOU MIGHT DRIVE PAST EVERY DAY YOU PROBABLY NEVER WOULD GUESS THAT THE BIGGEST RAMP IN TEXAS IS HERE. IT’S NOT IN THE CITY PARK, IT’S IN SOMEBODY’S BACKYARD. >>I HAVE NOT EVER HAD ACCESS TO A RAMP OF THIS CALIBER, EVER. >>IS 13 FOOT HIGH. AND EIGHT-FOOT TALL BUILDING AND 60 FEET OF SPACE TO PLAY WITH AND 6000 CANOPY COVERING THE RAMP. >>I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT WE MADE IT HAPPEN. >>SCOTT AND HIS FRIENDS HAVE SPENT THREE YEARS IN CLOSE TO $100,000 BUILDING THIS PLACE.>>WE WORK FULL-TIME JOBS. IT WAS PRETTY MUCH WORKING WITH OUR JOB AND THEN ANOTHER 40 OR 50 HOURS A WEEK ON THIS. >>THE RAMP IS INVITATION-ONLY. THAT PROBABLY MEANS SKATERS OF MY SKILL LEVEL ARE NOT INVITED. THEY COULD HAVE SOMEBODY ELSE DOING ALL THE WORK FOR THEM. IF YOU GREW UP SKATING LIKE MY PHOTOGRAPHER, YOU MIGHT REALIZE IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO LIVE OUT YOUR CHILDHOOD DREAMS ON A HALF BIKE. >>WHEN HE LOVE IT THAT MUCH, THAT’S WHAT YOU DO, I GUESS. >>ANOTHER THING I HAVE LEARNED OUT HERE IS TO REMEMBER TO WEAR HELMET. THAT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. SO THIS IS IN A SECRET LOCATION. WE CAN’T TELL YOU WHERE IT IS. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO COME OUT HERE AND MEET SOME OF THEM OR TRY SHOWING OFF YOUR CAN GO TO MY INSTAGRAM. YOU CAN GO THERE TO FIND OUT MORE INFORMATION AND FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN CONTACT THESE GUYS AND MAYBE SHARPEN YOUR SKILLS. >>WE LOVE WATCHING
