Thrasher Weekend: Boston Photos

We teamed up with CONS to bust up Boston for a Weekend with a handful of all-stars and New England icons. Zered, Alexis and Dutchy were joined by their fellow road-tested teammates Louie, Baca and Kaue. Newcomers Sean Evans, Zion Effs and younger brother Jax kept the energy up from the spots to the parks. The November issue of the mag has our favorite skate flicks, but here’s a little taste of what it’s like behind the scenes of the street skating, backyard ramp ripping and double-demo demolishing. —Dan Zaslavsky
