JENKEM – Revisiting the Water Tower Ollie with Jeremy Wray
The Water Tower Gap
Probably THE GNARLIEST trick in skateboarding history – the water tower gap. This was done by Jeremy Wray back in the 1990s. Somewhere in Orange County, CA there are two water towers about forty feet high each. They are separated by a 16 foot gap according to legend. Jeremy ollied this gap and made skateboarding history.
Now, it may not seem that crazy reading this, but I assure you that if you got on top of this tower and were thinking of trying it, you’d sh*t your pants. Literally, not figuratively. Here are some of the details:
- There are rocks and pebbles on top of the tower. You may think it’d be clear of debris, but it’s not. Imagining getting caught up on a rock right before you ollie. It’d be overs for you.
- The top of the tower isn’t flat. It’s convex. That’s the opposite of concave. It’s like a slight dome. I hate trying to do tricks when there’s the slightest downhill to the run up. Drives me nuts.
- When your board falls, it gets chipped. Yeah your board falls forty feet each time you don’t pull it.
- Bailing at forty feet doesn’t provide you with ANY options. You just take it. Luckily he never had to deal with it.
