Snippet from article by: 

Growing up in Vancouver we didn’t have a big range of options for terrain. The cul-de-sac out front of my house was littered with blast ramps and quarter-pipes that I built (with stolen wood, but that’s another story). My friends and I used to wheel a ramp a couple kilometers down the road to a big brick building to do some wall riding.

There were only two skate parks in those days: the Broadway bowls and the North Van bowls. My preferred stomping grounds was the one in the North Shore. It had a big snake run that led to a deep bowl. We’d ride up and down the banks, picking up momentum, then dip down and up the bowl and launch an air out the other side.

Wraiths, Urban Exploration and Adventure

Welcome to Wraiths.ca, home of urban exploration in BC. If you’ve ever wondered whats behind that closed door, this is the place for you. We go behind that door and explore the places you wondered about, and bring them to life here.

This is the 4th distinct version of Wraiths, time is short, but I will be repopulating the site with old content as well as new. Just be patient. It has been over a decade since the 1st version of Wraiths went live, wow, time has flown by.
