HB Park Mega-Session of DOOM

Image Description Here
The Blue Angels of Skateboarding showed up to wow us with their high-falutin' antics. Rob and Grant perform their trademark move, the head 2 head feeble transfer at high speed. They just miss each other.
Yesterday was seen as the last weekend to skate the famous HB skatepark, since the going rumor was that Tuesday is the last day. (Although the contract gets awarded on Tuesday, who knows when the actual demolition will take place, we could have another month!!!) Either way, people showed up in force for their last shred, and at dusk, as the sun was slicing through the bars low in the sky a huge posse showed up and a gool ol' mega sesh started with everyone getting gnarly at once. It was like when the park first opened, and I am totally honored to have been a part of this jam.
Lets start from the beginning. I got there at 2:30, and started shredding with a bunch of younger kids.

Then the red-bull army showed up. Look at this guy's face. He knows. He's thinking, 'Why did we roll up here? We are complete losers.'

There was seriously a whole parade of them.

Then we started doing feeble trains on the flat bar... (oh what a sweet flat-bar!)

We were trying to get all 4 dudes on at the same time, but we were going to fast.

Almost ran over that kid.
What an epic session! Seriously, I have been skating the park since it opened, and this was one of the best sessions ever. I was there for a straight 6.5 hours! I'm so sore today I can barely walk. Hopefully we can get some more epic ones in before the bulldozers show up, but this was good enough and will be hard to top.

I couldn't be happier, and I couldn't be any more sad at the same time. I'm hyped I to got to shred huntington for all these years! I'm hyped I was part of that session Sunday night, we ripped that place like it was 96. I got a lot of footy from that day. good footy. It looks like a golden hb sesh. but yea man im gonna be there with something tonight for everyone to sign. so go there and rip you mother fuckers! hb park will never rest!

If Ed or Kevin didn't post this, who did??

I'm going to miss HB park so much man... I used to go every weekend with my neighbors for 7 years, then their dad became an alcoholic, and we stopped going...

Wait, is it still open?!?! Can I have one last shred?!?! Please tell me so...
