St. Augustine
It’s nice when you go somewhere and can say, “Man, they sure did this place right!” Treaty Park in St. Augustine is a must-skate…fast, smooth, and free. As I walked through the pro shop into the park, I asked the girl at the counter, “What do I have to do, fill out a waiver?” She replied, “No, nothing.” Right then I knew I was in the right place. There’s one restriction: Helmets Required. But really, that’s not too much to ask, so we all complied. What a great session it was...

This hip is an easy transfer, or else this lien air wouldn’t be possible for Old Man Clements. I told you it was easy, otherwise there’s no way 225-Pounder, Big-Ass Pleshaw could do this frontside air either. Oh my God! Schaefer was ripping it with a big frontside air from tranny to bank. Rumor has it that Schaefer pulled this frontside boardslide first try. Flawless frontside bluntslide courtesy of Giles. This pyramid structure is a bit weird because it has tranny instead of just being banked, but Giles takes full advantage of it with a huge hip ollie.
