ST. HELENA SKATEPARK
Photos & words: Schmitty

Deep in the heart of wine country lies the future home of St. Helena's cement skatepark. I took the 1.5 hour drive out of SF with Dan Drehobl to check the progress, give some critique, and drop off Sean Gutierrez and Peabody, who will be helping the crew for a few days. The park looks to be a good one—it's in an open container park with BBQ pits near by—what more could you want?

    What better way to shake off a SOTY party hangover than with a little vert cruise across The Bay? Schaaf, Ffej, Navs, Hewitt, and the SOTY—Cheers!

    Probably the only person who doesn't wanna watch Dan Drehobl footage is Dan Drehobl, so he probably shouldn't come to our site this week. He'll be seeing a lot of himself.

    Hardcore East Coast ripping? Gotta be Timmy Upson and his Connecticut bros getting ugly. "Hey Timmy, where's my 500 bucks?" —Julien Stranger

    If you show footage of Windell's to any skater, anywhere in the world, they'll all say the same thing: "Man, that park looks fuckin' fun."
