Made it up to LA to check out the X Games skatepark. No crowds and no contest. Just a practice session with Mountain, Hosoi, Hassan, Barros, Grosso, Rune, Bucky, Josh Borden and some others. The park was made for the contest out of concrete and skatelite. It even had some sort of visor/ wave design that was kind of limited but I’m sure it will look cool on t.v. Drinking beers skating the course, who would have imagined? Things will heat up more next week and along with the Xtreme crowds.

Pedro Barros was killing it
A big slam on this thing will do great for the ratings….
