"Masher: VI Washington Street" Premiere Photos

Washington Street Skatepark underwent some construction recently. Some of the older sections that were not skated too often were smashed out and reconstructed—specifically the “back country” and the two enclosed bowls in the rear of the park. Now everything is opened up and connected. A few didn’t like the changes but the majority of the locals and other skaters who showed up to check it out were stoked on it. Chris Gregson logged some hours under the bridge with a crew of heavy hitters to put together a new edit, and what better place to have a premiere than where the shredding actually took place? The session was going strong all day—thanks to Culture Brewery who supplied the cold beverages and Biersal food truck who provided the grub. Don’t let anyone tell you any different—it’s still scary at the bridge and make sure you pay the troll! —Rhino
