Zered back 5-0 the hubba
Expedition flow rider Frankie Heck went to town on this thing. Back Smith.
Some kid made sure to inform us that every trick the guys were trying were ABDs. Zered went ahead and did the boneless anyway.
It was getting dark and the stairs were one of the only well lit sections. But that didn’t seem to bother Taylor McClung on this switch flip.
Frankie nailed the back overcrook in two tries.
Then the session moved over to the tight 1/4 pipe. Chany front rock.
Brianna pushed a lay back to the edge.
Tom and Zered with double 5-0’s, ABD?
