I saw this spot some months ago and thought it was perfect for Robbie Kirkland. He was living in the panhandle of Florida at the time, but now that he's home he was free to skate it. Crooks, in under three tries.

This is Michael Rogers on Saturday doing a kickflip crook. On Sunday, the hat was gone. Maybe one too many mic comments about it? Just as when wisecracks are made on the website, wisecracks on the mic about your gear and/or trick selection are generally jokes and we're just kidding, usually. Unless it's Vern on the mic. He's not usually joking
