Pay the Troll: WSVT 20th Birthday Bash Photos
It all started 20 years ago with an empty space under a bridge, a stolen flatbar, bags of ‘crete, hard work and a lot of beer. Washington St skatepark just hit the two-decade mark. Who would have ever thought it would last this long? It’s one of the best skateparks in San Diego—hands down! To celebrate, the park got lit up and one of the heaviest sessions ever took place. Here’s to another 20 years! –Rhino
