Send Me Footy pt. 13: "Westbay and rail"

This was a pretty fun and successful day, despite a hole in the ground every square foot. The last trick is our good friend and fellow Villager, Chris Lee. Enjoy!

P.S. Could there be a better thumbnail for this video? I think not, and it just popped up automatically!

A few clips jumbled together from Saturday. Was a fun spot, hence why I didn't film anything after the first ten minutes of our being there haha. Matt Gorman got the trick of the spot as seen in the photo below.

Send Me Footy pt. 12 "Teaser"

  This is a teaser for what was once called "Pleas35aveSkateboarding" (Please Save Skateboarding), but what ended up being called Sorry, We're Open.  It's summery and feel-good, just what we need during these rainy, winter days.

Send Me Footy pt. 11: "6/27"

  This video features myself, Matt Nielsen, and Andy Snyder.  We loved the first downhill manual spot for some reason, probably because it was easy to skate and fairly low impact.  Andy rifled off a slew of flip tricks and manuals with much ease, whereas I struggled with one.  The halfcab heel manual, on the other hand, was purely accidental.  I was trying the flip trick into it and the manual just happened.  Also, I told Jake not to film it, but being the professional that he is, he still did.  The second spot is this stage in Issaquah that may or may not still be there.  We went late at night and skated it hassle-free.  Super fun times.
