Stopped down to the Crooked River Skatepark to show a friend the park and came across a scene that would get anyone hyped up. A Mom filming her son mid-day at an empty park in 30 degree weather.
I’m not sure how many of you ever said the line “Hey Mom, wanna go film?” but Christine (the filmer and the assumed Mom) probably hears that allot. Based on her filming form and the fact that it was 30 degrees out she is down. She even had the wherewithal to keep the minivan idling with the heat on in the parking lot.
I doubt you would have come across a similar scene if they would have built a bocce ball court here instead. This park will be a re-awakening of this Flats area of Cleveland. Here’s to all the Mom filmers out there…
“Isn’t life strange, and rad, and fucked up… Thank fucking skateboarding for the grounding and perspective in this shit stew of consumer capitalism and naked hypocrisy. Keep it raw. Keep it lurkie.” - The management
King of Ohio 2 is happening this Saturday the 8th at Skate Naked. There will be three different ways to compete, either in the bowl, street or best trick. Signups close at 2:00pm so get there before then if you want to compete. Contest starts at 3:00pm and there will be live bands.
Junji over at Sound Boarding flew in from Osaka Japan to capture and edit the perfect coverage of this year’s Burnout skate jam at Now That’s Class in Cleveland Ohio. Ramps were ripped, beers were drank, and money was raised for the Queen Ave DIY.
