Suffolk Park Final Designs


After some process drama, the two new Suffolk skatepark designs are here from Spohn Ranch. Suffolk was working with a small budget and wanted two parks. Originally one was going to be a bowl, but budget and site constraints kept that from happening. Personally I am stoked on these parks. No fences, no monitors or passes. No giant vert walls. Just fun stuff to skate. I'd like to see other cities building more smaller parks instead of one giant park. What do you guys think?

Mount Baker Opening Day 2010: Generous Party Favors

Mt Baker, WA (November 20, 2010) -- Opening day is more than just a chance to strap in and stretch the winter legs. It’s the time of year when all the mountain folks emerge from their summer-of-working-to-fund-another-winter and leave the 9-to-5ers behind to bitch about the cold weather. It’s kind of like a high school reunion that only features the people you liked, and the opportunity to slash a bit of pow and jib some low tide features are the party favors.

As we made our way to Mt Baker’s much-anticipated opener, snow fell at sea level, maybe keeping some of the I-5 traffic at bay. When they began loading lifts at 9am sharp, it was apparent that Baker was serving up generous party favors: cold, knee-deep powder over a shallow-but-consolidated base provided more face shots than core shots, and clearing skies meant the sidecountry was firing on day one. And the usual faces emerged one by one, smiling to welcome another season to the Pacific Northwest.

Here’s to the Mt Baker class of 2011—see you in the lift line early and often.

TTR on Style in Judging and Double Corks

Following up on their discussion of the method, here are two videos from the TTR World Tour discussing how they approach style in the judging formula, and the explosion of tech tricks. With Jamie Lynn aand Bryan Iguchi as judges, we can assume they have a pretty good handle on style. Good to know they're paying attention to more than just number of rotations...think this will trickle down to the Olympics?

Unlike many of the free internet releases going on these days, this movie first appeared in DVD form in the ancient year of 2009. Hit play to watch "Shine On" last year's release from Kevin Sansalone, Clayton Larsen and the Sandbox Crew, in it's entirety.
