Title: New park in town
Post by: MattB on November 07, 2012, 01:15:15 PM
I'm one of those old dudes who used to skate a lot and still skate some but not like I used to. Still have my Lance Mountain deck, to date myself. :o

Anyway we just got our new Team Pain park here in Gunnison Colorado. It's amazing! I'm inspired to get out and bust my ass some more. Team Pain not only built us a great park but these guys also camped onsite for a couple of months to reduce expenses when some funding fell through. They didn't want to skimp on the park so they gave up their hotel rooms. Right on!

Opening day:

I used to love all those old fisheye pics in Thrasher in the 80's when I was a regular reader and tried to emulate that style for these.

Ah, good to know. I've been out of the loop for a while. I think the one I have was his first from the 80's. It's the one with the petroglyph looking graphics on a red background. Big tail and no nose. Motobilt 215s and Alva Rocks.  ;D
