Backside Disaster

The first vert contest at N-Orbit skatepark was a big moment for some local skaters, and finally having the chance to throw down in their own backyard brought out the best. Seeing a recently sponsored Jason May tear up this ramp all day is something I won’t soon forget. I have forgetten who else skated that day – and the contest results proved it didn’t matter. Long live the skatepark, and long live the contest.
