ADDRESS: 35 Commerce Ave, Albany, NY 12206, USA descript:indoor street style park. 2 mini ramps. several qauarters (5 - 6 - 8) and vert wallride. euro rythem section. miami ledge area. pyramid with rail. 40 FT MARBLE LEDGE! multiple moveable obsticles (wedges, banks, bank to ledge, launch, manny pads, etc...) the good: everything i listed above. the back mini is tiny and fun to learn new shit on. the front one has a hella tight tranny but is 20 ft wide. multiple marble ledges that are smooth a buddah. the floor in this place is perfect. the array of moveable obsticles makes for any johnny on the spot able to create killer lines. no kooks behind the counter. good people here, run by skaters for skater. oh ya, they used to have punk/hardcore shows here too. pretty ill. PS killer shop! the bad: weekends and school holidays this place becomes overrun with park rats. everyone lines up to hit the ledge/op/whatever and get in your way. kids hating on kids cause they cant land a kickflip. you know its apopularity contest. try not to get in the 13yr old filmers way or man, is his mom gonna be pissed. stick to going on weekdays when they open, when the kids start showing up grab some cold ones and hit the streets. pads: helmet only. recently inforced, but sometimes theyll let us older guys slide. depends on who you know. directions: 87 take 90 east to exit 5 (everett rd) take a right off the exit and your next left at the light. follow down about 1/3 mile on your left.

Two covers heating it up this month: Raven Tershy nose grabbing a back tail way over vert at FDR and Figgy getting crooked down a 24-stair monster. Tons more Stay Flared tour highlights inside, 20 pages if you're counting. Other travel tales include an epic Dubai mission for We Are Blood and the Asphalt Yacht Club voyages to Hawaii. Tom K and Frank Shaw both get the Heads treatment and music-wise we got interviews with Morrissey and Slayer, so that's worth the admission price alone.
