Eastside Pride

In the episode we go to China Creek and skate one of the oldest skateparks in North America.

It has gone through some changes and needs a resurface. The locals love it and have fought city hall many times to keep their skatepark.

Then We go to Matt Blouin’s and skate the fridge ramp. Matt Fazackerley goes for 5 tricks in 5 tries on it.
