It’s a bit of a twist on our old friend GVK. Today we are featuring a couple of videos from Casey’s Video Korner, CVK, get it? Anyway, here are a couple of videos that Casey recently posted on the Earth Patrol Network. Check them out after the turn and then get the heck up out of your chair and go skate. The weather here in Portland is perfect.

Progress Abounds

Monday Cover Vol. 3 Issue 15 - Emy

It’s great to see skaters progressing as a result of building quality skateparks. This week’s Monday Cover skater, Emy, is a beneficiary of just that situation.

Cheers to the community of Battle Ground for supporting their youth. More pics of Emy killing the hips after the turn.

Congratulations Emy!

Twilight Session at Glenhaven

We continue our theme of anonymous skaters in action during a recent session at Glenhaven. The light was rapidly evaporating and the skating was frantic. Any help with names is greatly appreciated. See all the pics in the gallery.
