Burnout: Glazed Over
After a big night it’s time to either sweat out the poison or try to soak it up. Alltimers attempted both with a donut-fueled skate jam at Fat Kid the morning after the Death Match. Burnout prefers chocolate old fashioneds!
One more morning on the stoop.
ET’s puffy sprung a leak
Always smiles outta these two tho
Over to Fat Kid. Puleo told me the origin of the name. Turns out it has nothing to do with the mellow terrain
Oh shit … Locals!
Consider the stoop relocated
With one major difference!
That’s the stuff
It was a GTWYC scenario
Although the jelly-filled went fast. Merci Leon!
Countdown to spazzville begins NOW
Bublitz, forever bucking trends
Jerome our humble event organizer stands watch on the props
Just about time to get this thing started
First prop – the skulls!!!
A most annoying obstacle as it had to be set back up between every other go
Still, many skied over it with ease. Jiro, for instance
Lui Elliot, leading by example
Coulda done five skulls easy
Early-grab Christ. I know!
Holy shit! Dr Z!
Kader with the backside spinner
Even Gary got into the act!
When you’ve got that much switch flip power, it can get away from you
Tanner made it
When in doubt, grab it out
Shawn Hale was killing it all week. Cheeky footplant off the domes
The long view
And then … great success!!!
Wallride? Should we do wallride?
Coolest obstacle at Fat Kid
Johnny splats way overhead
Roman’s reign of terror continued
Nick Michel is from Las Vegas, a bank-to-wall capitol!
Santiago, scraping out
Wallrides to kickflip fakie too
Kinda hard to judge
But in the end, Lui’s keen eye crowned Nick’s vertical thrust the highest, which it probably was. Congrats Nick!
Over to the tiny, tiny bowl! Everyone!
A little more extension than most could handle
Kader gave it his best shot
They all did
Grabbing the top definitely helped
A could shredders eyeballed the macho tail drop as a short cut to glory
If you hesitate, it’s definitely not happening
Nothing ventured, as they say
Kinda fizzled out
Which was fine because an impromptu sesh on the curved rail sparked off. Kader’s in the club
Justin Henry’s patented crooks pop over. Wow!
Then Delfino slid the whole dang thing, bank-to-bank of course
Traditional stair and rail jam to cap it off
Leon managed to find an unorthodox path regardless
Tyson got Smithy
Micro hucker. He made it too
Lui continued to blur the line between employee and participant
Good ol’ 5-0 grind
Don’t think ET didn’t chuck carcass
Justin is the secret demo machine. Especially since he avoids booze and donuts
The ill pop shove through the slot
Kader with a backside 360. I missed the magic one-footed one
Show stopper number three – nollie crooks through the kink. Somebody get this guy a donut!
Nick’s ollie to balance beam was one of the wildest moves of the whole trip. He’s very good
And finally, the crud-clearing bs flip
Is that it? Are we done?
And that’s time!
Some light organizational tasks to be handled – Canadian style
And uhm …
What do you want me to say?
Industry secret – you always film the intro last. Sorry to spill the beans Rye
Thank you Alltimers, Vans, Gary Rogers and especially Fat Kid locals
See ya’ll again soon. Next time: pizza!
