Skatopia Video** UPDATED
GODDAMN IT! The audio got deleted from Youtube, so now I'm gonna upload it on Vimeo. Who knows how long that will take. While I'm waiting, I guess I'll talk about the trip. For better and well thought out explaination, go to the link in the post below this to see Ebys site/ story.
Skatopia is amazing. Thats all that needs to be said. If your into transition skating and feel the need to get better at it as fast as possible, go there for a weekend or longer. It basically forces you to skate fast as hell and on stuff with more vert and taller then you would ever skate normally. Then, after a tiring day of skating, you get to relax in front of a nice camp fire and chill, right? wrong. Every second there is gnarly. Standing by a fire can, at any second, result in running for your life, whether its spray paint cans, 9mm bullets, or hand grandades being thrown in. While dodging exploding paint cans, your also tryin to watch your possessions so they don't get stolen or set on fire.
This makes it sound like the place is horrible, but its amazing, and I can't wait to go back. Now looking back on what I just wrote, its not about the trip at all. Oh well, I'm not about to rewrite anything... just go to Ebys site and check out the sick pictures and his story.
