A.T.M. Skate Action

Ashland, Talent and Medford Skateparks

With Matt’s and Grants Pass in the bag and about eight more hours of daylight, we decided to hit-up skateparks in Ashland, Talent and Medford. Built at the turn of this century, these parks were fun to ride but are showing some wear. A large chunk of the current crop of Oregon skate talent got their start in these parks. Check out MC, Shawn, Kane, Gabe and Tyler as they sesh it up after the turn.

The weather was cooler but the skating was on fire. After lunch, we headed over to the Grants Pass skatepark for our second session of the day. Tyler, Steev and Larry kill this place. All the proof after the turn.

It’s on! Grab your board and head to Lincoln City. Peace, love and shred with all your skate web favorites including Bobcat and Grover.

Two Skate Gems

Matt’s Bowl and Jacksonville Skatepark

We arrived at Matt’s early Friday afternoon and sessioned his recently finished backyard kidney topped off with Tedder’s finest. This bowl is fun and Matt kills it. After sweating for a couple of hours in the 90 degree plus heat, we headed for Jacksonville for an early evening session. Long story short, Jacksonville is super fun. Big walls, fast lines and a wide channel for the avid gap master. Check out all the action after turn.
