“I couldn’t turn down an opportunity to skate a spot like this. No better place to ‘move like water.’  Thanks Chris, Rest In Peace Bruce.”

“Having the opportunity to skate the water park was like no other and I knew I couldn’t pass it up. I’ve always wanted to skate that loop and when Chris hit me up I couldn’t say no. It’s a lot bigger and scarier in person but damn it was fucking sick! Good friends, good vibes and big water slides.
Can it get better than that?

“It’s like Willy Wonka opened the factory gates for a single day, every skater has dreamed of getting to skate a waterpark. We had full reign to skate the whole place! Definitely a session. I will remember for the rest of my life.”

“One of the coolest experiences I’ve had skating something not meant to be skated. You’d think the slides would be slippery but it was just about the opposite and was sticky. Heading down the white slide full speed was extremely fun.”
