Telomeres or Midichlorians

Monday Cover Vol. 5 Issue 36 - Mark Conahan

The force is strong in this one. Chalk it up to some robust telomeres or possibly a high midichlorian count. Whatever the reason, this week’s Monday Cover skater, Mark Conahan, is full on jedi frontside invert at Forks. Check out a few more pics of Mark feeling the skate-force after the turn.

Congratulations Mark!

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!

Forks, Washington Skatepark

Yep, Forks, the last stop on our whirlwind Olympic Peninsula tour. Grindline did a great job on this park. The bowl finish is super smooth and the custom tile work is a nice touch. Other interesting features include a cool bricked stamped wall with coping, a concrete ribbon, a rock hit and a linear street section. The locals seemed stoked on their park as well they should be, it’s a good one. Check out the gallery for all the photos. Forks is worth the drive.
