In this short episode of Rolling Bones Podcast we check out the Go skateboarding day event at Strathcona Skatepark.
We hope you had a great Go Skateboarding Day and we’ll see you next year!
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.
We preview a DVD called The Seylynn Story. This was created by George Faulkner to show the history of the oldest skatepark in Canada, possibly North America. It has been used by every generation of skateboarder since the 70s.
Then we have a quick check out on the rebuilt North Burnaby – Confederation Skatepark. They jackhammered out the old over vert crazy bowl and poured something everyone can enjoy.
The Sweat shop is a small indoor skatepark in East Vancouver. Once a month they are host to Grilled Cheese, 40’s and Game Of Skate.
This is a fun contest with a simple aim – have fun. Brendan is a great host. He handed out grilled cheese to everybody. The 40s were only handed out to winners of SKATE.
Check it out.
