Skate Noir

Skate Noir with HooperFly and MC's Bowl

Early sunsets make for more abundant sessions under the lights. That is, if you have lights(on the wish list for Portland skateparks). Fortunately, MC is a luminary and made sure his “Fortress of Shreditude” was electrified. Check out a few pics from last night’s session courtesy of HooperFly. EPM “dark nights return” Out!

Update: Added some video footage along with an extended edit courtesy of MC

Random Dew’ds

Skate Legends at the Portland Dew Tour on Earth Patrol

One of the highlights of the Portland Dew Tour, in addition to a sweet concrete bowl, was the opportunity to see legends shredding the bowl.

EPM “portland has bowls” Out!

No Fooling

Foto-Friday on Earth Patrol

April has finally arrived and along with it, hopefully, more seasonable weather. March was a wet one and Burnside was one of the few places where you could find a bit of dry terrain. We snapped a few pics during a Sunday brunch session at the park last weekend. Check out some wet weather refugees on this week’s Foto-Friday after the turn. EPM “shamwow” Out!
