How sick is it that Thomas Haney Secondary School has its own plaza skatepark? The first of its kind in Canada to be exact and according to New Line (the fine folks who built it), it is an attempt to "incorporate progressive public space for youth in non-traditional settings." Sounds like the makings of a new young adult tv show—Transition High—or something like that. Anyways, it's a sick plaza and we stayed an extra long time here for a handrail session with Haslam and DeCenzo, a filmer/photgrapher session with plenty of sweepers and even a tee-shirt signing with a local shop owner who followed us on Twitter and met us here.
Then, another (ahem) gem of a park in Walnut Grove. 'A' for effort?? The guys got a few tricks here, but the photographers were to busy checking each other out to notice. Infinite loop.
Ahhhh...Ol' Langley. Even just saying it harkens back to feelings of sympathy and fondness. Like patting your little brother on the top of the head for trying. Or kind of like, 'the one that got away.' Of course everybody was all: "this was where Colin McKay did that nollie 180 heel on that fucked up wall thing?" Yes, and if the people of instagram are to be held to their word, there's also been a nose blunt from Alex Chalmers and a f/s flip from McCranker among other bangers. Truly ridiculous considering, well... just look at this thing. At least one of our crew bombed it.
