After a little recovery...

After a little recovery...

Skate Elmira released the preliminary design for the new Elmira skatepark.
The new design is for a long and lean park with a sweet pool.
Check you the design at the link above.

I guess I had to back sometime.  However, I discovered a new indoor park in Mississauga.
Taly's Skatepark is small but very efficient. Had some fun there and became a member.
 Member #16.
Park # 245.

The new West Lodge Skatepark in Toronto new Queen & Lansdowne. Pretty nice for a modular park.
# 246.

Back to school means empty parks for me.  Running missions and hitting the internet to dive deeper into the world of skateparks and the missions to build them.

And RIP Jay Adams.

Road Rage 2014

Earlier this year I joined up with Skate Club Toronto. What is Skate Club? This is how they describe themselves.

"Skate club is bros that get together every week to skate and take some time for the occasional comp, skate trip and a "thought of the day". "

Road Rage is a meeting of the different Skate Clubs in eastern Canada.
A crazy journey of Clubs from Pembrooke, Toronto, Oshawa, Picton, Wellesley and Winnipeg.
We met at Ashbridges Bay Plaza in Toronto and ended in Montreal.  Here's what went down.
 School rain in Pickering on day 2.

 Too soggy to skate or fly.
 Skated in this covered lacrosse rink.
 Picton, where I did the awesome leg bruise last month.

 Planking manny pads.

 Skate spot in Kingston.
 Hospitality in Brockville. 
 New and Old mix at the Kemptville skatepark. # 239

 Ripping the Olympic grounds, Montreal.

 Ah, where'd that shark come from?
 La Taz. Montreal
 Project 45 Montreal
 Town on Mont Royal. # 244
 Downtown Montreal.

 Fun times with good kids.
That ain't even the half of it. 
Road Rage has a video contest. The videos from each team are screened at a theater. Toronto came in third place. Watch it here.

Till next time.
