In 2014 actor, comedian, musician and skateboarder Bam Margera had his skate barn made over. The skate barn had made several appearances in Bam’s MTV shows and also in his movies Where the F is Santa and the Jackass series of films.
Bam was never really happy with the set up and wanted to freshen it up. So he hired Jason Chapman from the Charmcity Skatepark in Baltimore, Maryland to give the barn a make over based on a design Bam engineered. The renovations went well.
The new setup definitely had some noteworthy obstacles. One of which was the see through (translucent) quarter pipe. “I used two quarter inch sheets of Lexan sandwiched together and bolted them to steel tubing” said Chapman. “The guys at Total Plastics guaranteed that it would stand up to any abuse Bam Margera and crew could throw at it.” Chapman continued.
After the park was finished Chapman revisited the Skatebarn and filmed an edit of it getting shredded. Apparently the Lexan did hold up under the wheels of Bam and crew as showcased in the video. If the legendary Kris Markovich’s giant hardflip to fakie didn’t break it, nothing will.
