Last Saturday, we loaded up the van and took the team over to St. Pete for the grand opening of Campbell Park. Team Pain really outdid themselves with this one... there's a mellow street course that bleeds into a snake run, a gnarly bowl Mike Frazier calls "The Humbler" and plenty of space to move around. Boards for Bros stopped by too to make sure that kids who didn't have skateboards got some to shred it, and overall it was a rad day. Check some of the photos.
The park was packed, with kids lined up at every corner of the park.
