Anyway, this skateboarder was prolly a tad too aggressive to be in compliance with Frisco’s rules, whatever they are…
Video: RedBull “SteepCrest 2014″ on De Haro in Potrero Hill – Bike and Skateboard Ramp Jumps – Kind of a NothingburgerMonday, November 24th, 2014
I’d wondered why I hadn’t heard of any coverage of this one.
It was kind of a nothingburger. See?
I don’t know, if Red Bull wants to start shutting down streets to promote itself, I think it could come up with some better ideas.
Here are just a few. Hey RB, try to be more like this:
In March 2009, Public Works initiated the conceptual planning phase for the skate park by meeting with the community and the designer, Newline Skateparks, Inc. Guided by community input, Newline presented three design concepts to the community in April 2009. Meeting attendees requested the designer fuse selected features from each concept into one final design and in May 2009, Newline presented the final skate park design to the community.”

OMG, an Arresting SF-Related Skateboard Video: “SAN FRANCISCO SHRED CITY” – Thrilling, Scary, DangerousMonday, March 3rd, 2014

And in the end, they have a Shutterfly book to send to Nana
A modern-day warrior
Mean, mean stride
Today’s Tom Sawyer
Mean, mean pride
Though his mind is not for rent
Don’t put him down as arrogant
His reserve, a quiet defense
Riding out the day’s events
The world is, the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his eyes are wide
Exit the warrior
Today’s Tom Sawyer
He gets high on you
And the energy you trade
He gets right on to the friction of the day
