Andy MacDonald - Doorway Play @ Pier Park

Possibly the only full pipe on the planet with a doorway, Pier Park Skate Park inspires Andy MacDonald to frontside lip slide the doorway’s upper edge.

Well, Bucky mentioned to Andy that he might call it a “tin can.” We thought it looked more like an “under rock.” Whatever it’s called, it’s insane. Check out more pics of Andy’s pipe adventures after the turn.
