Sundown at the Foundation

Last night in Atlanta, we got lost around town and ended up at The Foundation. It's no longer a DIY spot, unfortunately. Check out a few photos from our mellow night.

By the time we found it, the sun was down and things were pretty dark. There used to be a concrete slab here with a bunch of homemade stuff. Somehow it got replaced with the worst street course ever. Damn.
A concrete spine? Someone 45 designed this park for sure.
A giant sideways Nike swoosh?
Body's got the darkside front rock on this steep little quarter.

Chris Jata should stick a bunch of lotto tickets to the bottom of his board and scratch them off with switch frontside rocks to combine two forms of fabulous entertainment - skateboarding and gambling.

It's a little hard to ollie and focus in the dark. Jereme Knibbs has no problem with the ollie part. I can't get the focus right, though.

Body's go to move always looks good - the frontside nosestall.

This Jersey barrier should be moved over to the street course.
An interplanetary extraterrestrial communication apparatus.
It's too dark, we are out.
We are now overexposed and underfocused in the random streets of Atlanta.

This thing, the Clem-350, trucked 10 dudes from Tampa to Atlanta with Porpe behind the wheel curb jumping it.

CJ Dixon and Frosty were part of the Clem-350 crew.

Porpe's tourist trinkets. I wonder if he has a dolphin tattoo on his ankle too like a jock ass chick.

We all got beers. Body got ice cream.

Moments later, Porpe was wearing Body's ice cream.

Don't nobody mess with Filmer Joe Pelham's jock tower of sauce. Good night everyone, we have a long day of registration and check-in tomorrow.
