Coast is Clear

Brookings Skatepark

On Sunday, we packed our bags and headed for our first stop on the Oregon coast, Brookings. The route from Grants Pass to Brookings is a scenic one, including some Redwood action near Crescent City, CA, and it’s only about an hour and a half of travel time. The park was fairly empty save a soon-to-be-ticketed biker and a California crew on a road trip. Shawn and MC had no problem finding some lines and Shawn checked the bowl gap off of his skate to-do-list. Check out some sequences, a full-gallery and some select photos after the turn.

  • Rich, I like the way you did this post. It’s a good combination of coverage and art. Plus the gallery and the sequences…very nice! That gap jump looks “do or die”, In one of the sequences you can tell the point at which Shawn knows he’s made it.

  • Sweet shawn! I wish I had been there to see it in person with my d-80!
