Burnside Halloween 25 Video and Photos

Burnside’s been around for 25 years and Halloween has become the official anniversary. Every self-respecting skateboarder should make a pilgrimage there, but doing it on October 31st is the icing on the cake. This year there was rain of epic proportions but all it did was make the fun wetter.

Call him Red, call him Neck, just don’t call him Redneck (anymore). Godfather of Burnside. He’s been kicking out the one-footed Gray slide since before the time of Burnside.
