Back in issue #55 of The Mag I wrote negative comments about ESPN people replacing vert skating with something called “Super Park.” My negative commentary was not as personal as some may have thought. My real goal was to let the skaters in the X Games know we had their back and that the corporate types shouldn’t be making decisions such as that without consulting the group as a whole. Blah, blah, blah.
Well, as it turns out, vert was put back in and Super Park is debuting next week at the Home Depot Center in Los Angeles. So I get called by a friend at Vans about going to the Super Park practice to shoot Omar Hassan and he’d go ahead and get me a media pass for the day. I told him good luck with that, and when he called back he confirmed my suspicions â€” I am not a fave of the people over at the Entertainment and Sports Entertainment Network, but somehow he still managed to get me a pass. I was just glad that someone over there cared enough to read my comments written in the mag. Anyway, here are some pics of Rune, Andy Mac, and Omar practicing for next week’s Super Park.
Here’s the Super Park.
Andy Mac deems it shredable.
Omar can take fastplants to fakie on anything.
Rune finding the difficult lines.
Now that’s funny, Omar.
Bartie showed up with skills.
We’re cool now, right?
