Deep in the brush of Cachagua, a surfer/carpenter/philosopher named Raboon Eggleston, once had a dream. That dream was to build his own sanctuary where he could wave his freak flag as high as he wanted. The gray-haired dancing machine achieved that dream years later and in the process he spawned a few offspring just as forward thinking as himself. A few years ago, Raboon and his son, Zarosh, had another dream: build a mini skatepark in the backyard (pictured above).
Here's a little about the project from the Eggleston crew with a rad accompanying video (music provided by Rushad Eggleston(pictured above) and the Tornado Rider posse):
Cachagualand is a project we've been working on for the past four years. Organic skateboarding terrain, built by dreamers. Zarosh and family are building this work of art for the love of creative expression. This eleven hour time lapse shows a great crew of volunteers handling 8 1/2 yards of concrete. Music "Mountain Jumper" from the first album by Tornado Rider, "Do You Have Time?" visit: www.tornadoriderband.com -Thanks goes out to everyone who has worked and donated to Cachagualand. --Special thanks to Raboon, Tornado Rider, Bills Wheels, Power Riders Dreamland crew, George, Dan, and Grandpa's crew! This masterpiece is almost complete and an inspiration for many. If you would like to donate to Cachagualand please visit: www.platipusskateboards.com
