Out Like A Lion

Monday Cover Vol. 2 Issue 20 - Kevin Kowalski

March went out like a lion with respect to the weather here in Oregon. Speaking of lions, check out the mane on this week’s Monday Cover skater, Kevin Kowalski, as he gets stale in the snake pit. To reuse a phrase, call the doctor ’cause Kevin and the snake are both SICK!!! Be sure to check out the bonus sequences of Kevin as well.

Congratulations Kevin!


Ocean Optional

Foto-Friday for March 28, 2008

The Pacific Ocean is just a short walk from the Lincoln City skatepark but the swells here are of the concrete kind. Check out Diego, Wade, Jack, Justin, Kevin, Marek, MC, Steev, Dan, Tony and more in the galleries below. Lincoln City is quickly becoming the Mecca of skateboarding.

We’re not sure if he took the red pill or the blue pill? Things seem to be out of proportion though. Check out more pics of Marek shredding this mystery bowl after the turn. Hmmm, wonder where that thing is?

Gnarliest Park on the Planet

Lincoln City Snake Run Banner

When Dreamland built phase one of the Lincoln City Skatepark, it was deemed the Gnarliest Park in America by Thrasher Magazine. Eight years and three more phases later, the park has graduated to the Gnarliest Park on the Planet. It’s hard to comprehend the gnar-factor of the snakerun until you experience it. Check out a few pics from yesterday’s session after the turn and stay tuned for more coverage over the next few weeks.

Get Busy Living

MC - FS Invert @ Battle Ground

Aren’t you a little old to be riding a skateboard? Simple answer: Nope. Stomp out ageism or in the case of MC invert it out (click on the picture for a larger view).

Like the line from Shawshank Redemption: Get busy living, or get busy dying. EPM Out!

Congratulations Steve and Mark!
