Steve Alba, Rune Glifberg, Al Partanen, Arto Saari, Rick McCrank, Bob Burnquist, Omar Hassan, and even Ronnie Creager ripping some backyard pits.
Ronnie Creager never ages, Louie Barletta never met a mom he didn't like, and we never like skateboarding grouped in with "action sports". This is today's episode of Skateline.
Ronnie is a true tech titan and has been making it look so easy for so long. Here's some of his legendary lines from 1996. Introduced by Dennis Busenitz.
The head to head brackets were set with the top 12 and it went down to Creager vs Reynolds for the finals. Big ups to the Boss for skating his ass off all weekend and walking away with 160 large.
It was a long hot day with practice, qualifying heats, and the semi-finals in Washington DC and when all the dust settled and the rain blew by it was Andrew Reynolds who qualified first for tomorrows Finals.
Ben Karpinski went to the Blind premiere over the weekend and sent in some photos of the festivities.
