Custom Skateboard Designs Inspired by Ray’s Pool

Ray’s Pool A San Diego Legend

Ray’s pool has been a hot spot for local San Diego skaters for the past 15 years. While skaters shred, spectators can watch from the sides of the pool or from the top of the roof that over looks the pool. Ray’s house and pool is a pretty sweet spot that is at a high vantage point of San Diego. Back in the day, before there were skate spots, this was where locals would gather to skate. Ray is putting the home on the market, marking an ending to a San Diego skating era. To celebrate the past decade and a half, Ray hosted a birthday party for local skate legend Old Man Andy. It has been the last big skate gathering at the pool since the beginning.

A Bit About Ray

Ray was born and raised in San Diego. He is a bit of a local legend himself. Along with skating, Ray is into surfing and fishing. Currently, he is working on a new big project. He is the owner of the Pacific Beach restaurant Izakaya PB. This is a great spot for good eats and the freshest sushi in town. You can often find Old Man Andy and other local skaters having lunch and dinner at this spot near the beach. Not only can Ray shred the surf, he can also craft a really mean roll and cook up some soulful ramen. He keeps true to his Japanese roots through his craft of food.

Custom Skateboard Pool Theme

We put together a collection of custom skateboard designs to share with you. These custom skateboards are inspired by Ray and his pool. As you can see by the theme, the fusion of California and Japanese culture has fuzed together for these designs. You can find this collection of custom skateboard designs along with others at WhateverSkateboards.com’s browse section.

The BLOCK Riser Basics – BettyBOX

BLOCK Risers BettyBOX Blue BLOCK Risers BettyBOX Green

The base unit for BLOCK Risers are the original BettyBOX. The BettyBOX is a tough 3/8″ riser unit made to fit on any truck setup. If you’re looking for light, durable skateboard risers the BettyBOX is designed to minimize the riser weight while still providing a stable rise usable by even professional downhill longboarders. A solid product in its own right, the BettyBOX really shines when used as intended and combined with the rest of the BLOCK Riser setups. Unlike most skateboard risers the entire BLOCK Riser BettyBOX series is also able to be used as longboard risers, even with drop through trucks.

BLOCK Risers GoBLOCK – The GoPro Mount for Skateboarding

BLOCK Risers GoPro Red BLOCK Risers GoPro Purple

With the GoBLOCK, you can add an extra feature to your custom skateboard. The GoBLOCK adds a GoPro camera mount feature to your riser. The design lets you install the camera in a spot that is out of the way from your feet, both when mounted above and below the deck. With vibration restraints and a secure hold, the GoBLOCK will help you capture smooth skateboard footage. Its the most useful skateboard riser we’ve ever seen. Combine with the soft durometer BLOCK Riser Pads to get good footy even over sidewalk cracks. The GoPro attachment easily locks into the BettyBOX housing. so you can attach and detach your GoPro easily.

StashBLOCK Drawer Block Risers

BLOCK Risers StashBLOCK BLOCK Risers StashBLOCK 2

The StashBLOCK has a secret compartment that slides in and locks into the base BLOCK Risers BettyBOX. The box is perfect for storing keys and small items that you might need to bring along on the ride but don’t want to get mangled. If you hate skating with stuff in your pockets the StashBLOCK locks in securely and doesn’t fall out while you’re out cruising or ripping. Not too big and not too small the StashBLOCK is the perfect size.

Looking For More BLOCK Riser Blocks?

The entire premise behind BLOCK Risers is to keep adding new blocks and there are no signs of stopping. The latest addition from BLOCK Risers includes a GoPro light mount to give you an option of a bottom mounted light or a top mounted light that help you avoid cracks and stack crazy clips at night. Mix and match your BLOCK Risers boxes, both straight and wedge risers, and find your style.

Custom Skateboard Features

It is the details that count, and with these innovative BLOCK Risers, you have the option to upgrade your custom skateboard to get the best ride. They come in 5 bright colors of red, green, blue, purple, and black.

I’m Buying a Gift, What’s a Riser?

Risers are slab of durable material that is screwed between the skateboard deck and the skateboard trucks. They help the skateboard “rise” up a little and are useful when you want to use larger wheels without getting wheelbite or you have a skateboard that sits too low to the ground. They can also help reduce chatter and rumbling when going at higher speeds or skating on harder wheels. You can also use them to get a change in your pushing and carving. Most risers are flat though BLOCK Risers offers both flat and wedge. Typically skateboard risers are simple pieces of high durometer plastic. The difference with BLOCK Risers is their innovative design that allows you to actually use the riser for multiple purposes other than just additional height.
