Magical Symbiotic Skate Environment

Burnside 20 Year Celebration on Earth Patrol

The current Burnside Bridge opened to traffic in 1926. Jump ahead to current times, and this 84 year-old bridge provides refuge to the now 20 year-old Burnside Skatepark. Each year, on Halloween, skaters don costumes and flock to the skatepark to celebrate in this magical symbiotic skate environment. Check out a few pics from this year’s celebration under the bridge after the turn along with a few bonus videos from BK and GVK.

Pools have healing powers

No matter the age of the skater, an empty swimming pool gets those youthful juices flowing. Rick, Ryan, Randy and MC tap into their inner-child during a session at the long defunct trailer park pool. Check out all the sweaty old guy action after the turn. EPM “alien pods in the pool” Out!

For the Love of It

Amateurs' Division @ 2010 Oregon Trifecta

This year’s Trifecta saw the addition of an amateur division for the younger generation of skaters. We are guessing that the amateur division is here to stay as a part of the annual event based on the positive feedback. Speaking of positive feedback, check out Shea, Sean and more shredding it up during the Lincoln City stop of 2010 Oregon Trifecta after the turn. EPM “little shredders coming to get you” Out!

Monochrome Memories

 Dennis Agnew, Tony Alva, Jay Adams and Duane Peters @ Marina Del Rey

While doing some research on the old Skatercross skate park, we stumbled upon an awesome gallery of photos from skate-days-gone-by at Marina Del Rey. If you skated in the late 70’s/early 80’s, you know that Marina was one of the premier skate parks of the time and it attracted many of the heavy shredders. Over thirty-one years in the making courtesy of photographer David Scott, check out this week’s Foto-Friday in the gallery below. Also, be sure to check out larger versions of the photos featured in the banner after the turn. Can you name the skaters? EPM “now where’s my fly-away and gyros” Out!
