ole' Leeside photo
I dug up this Leeside photo from a few years ago and scanned it in. A bit rough but nonetheless a photo. I believe it was the spring of 2005, pretty sure. It is amazing to see the changes Leeside has endured.
I’m currently trying to prevent the new skatepark in Copenhagen from taking away from a quite old one by talking about new locations as we have less than 10 good parks around!

On Saturday Ryan, Brett, Glen and me (Mike T) had a pretty busy day. We started at Hastings and then decided to head down to Leeside. We got to skate both parks pretty hard and then Baxter and Fat Chris showed up to put some cement coping on the bowled off corner there. Within about half an hour a whole crew of people showed up. After a few hours we now have some pool coping on the north east corner of Leeside. Stay off it until May 15th at least though. It would suck if the cement was not set yet.

Lee, your legacy lives on. I've seen this park transform from a flatbank and a park bench. And then the wood park that PM Skateboards brought in. Which ended up getting destroyed over the years. And now this...

To all the BMXer's out there. I'd like to send a message. This park is being built from the money out of the pockets from skaters you all know. This park is being built by the labour of many skaters you all know in the memory of Lee Matasi. Out of respect for us and most of all Lee DON'T USE YOUR PEGS HERE.

Thanks
Mike T

at Leeside with Squamish Joe and Ryan Walker. Leeside is starting to look really great. There is now a small hotdog spine with coping in the center. There are two bowled off corners on the north side of the tunnel, the barrier to barrier obstacle with the extension in the middle, a perfect quarter pipe, wall ride and a volcano.

I was at the Leeside Halloween gathering last Sunday. Fun times but dusty and chilly.

Right before the Vox/Creature guys left [Black & Blue Metal] on the next leg of their travels they decided to do a little bit of filming for posterity.

Generators and production schedules aside, they opted to add some another Do It Yourself obstacle at Vancouver’s rainy staple of a spot: Leeside.

Take a peek at the photos, when the guys weren’t lugging around bags of concrete they found time to share in some local beverages and shred the existing terrain.

Until We Get Leeside.
This temporary installation opened 01/13/06 at Anti Social Skateshop's gallery as an awareness art-piece. It's dedicated to the memories of Lee Matasi and Rachel Davis, two Vancouver skaters who senselessly lost their lives to hand guns. Hopefully this shop-addition will primarily shed light on the lack of gun control in Vancouver (via publicity), and secondly offer an under-cover skatespot for downtown enthusiasts (just like a reconstructed concrete Leeside would).

It was Rick [McCrank]'s first time skating it. We had a fun crew and Guns and Roses was playing, stoked!

  Lee Matasi Gunned Down in Vancouver   
Skateboarder Lee Matasi Gunned Down in Vancouver
 
Skateboarder Gunned Down in Vancouver
  • Very sad and tragic news of a skateboarder and artist slain in Vancouver over the weekend. The victim is the brother of female skater Alison “Nugget” Matasi. He first introduced her to skateboarding years ago. Our thoughts of condolence goes out to Alison’s family.
  • Young Vancouver artist gunned down outside a Richards Street nightclub - Glenda Luymes, The Province
    Skateboarder Lee Matasi, 23, 'despised guns'
  • He was well known for creating an undercover skate-spot on Hastings (near the P.N.E.) called Leeside. Runour is that it may be converted into a legitimate concrete skatepark.

Please be sure that these photos reach those who knew "Little" Lee of Leeside Matasi. He was tragically shot and killed outside a Vancouver night club on Saturday morning.

I don't know what else to say except things need to change. What keeps happening is NOT cool and we CAN NOT except it. This has just got to stop.

He was 23.

We Remember Rachel Davis and We Remember Lee Matasi.
