Well the first 50 memberships to the revived DoS bowl are just about gone. Word has it that there are only three spots left.

So if you’ve been waiting to buy in, now is the time. Check out more pics of Sonny getting his money’s worth after the turn.

Congratulations Sonny!

Beyond Twilight!

Monday Cover Vol. 5 Issue 32 - Josh Gray

Tucked away, along the northern coast of the Olympic Peninsula, is the town of Forks. A community not only friendly to vampires, werewolves and sasquatch but to skaters as well. This week’s Monday Cover skater, Josh Gray, holds it down for the locals with this huge air out of the bowl. Sick! Sporting pool coping and some unique tile work, this well designed Grindline bowl is worth the trip. Check out a few more pics of Josh tearing it up after the turn.

Congratulations Josh!
