La municipalité de Victoriaville cherche à construire un nouveau skatepark. Le plan initial vient de Tessier Récréo-parc. Pour ceux qui ne les connaissent pas c’est juste Solo skatepark. Oui ces skateparks de merde qu’il y a un peu partout dans la province. Si tu veux te faire une idée de ce qui se dit sur facebook à propos de leurs designs click here. Le design ci-dessous n’est pas le pire qu’on ait pu voir par le passé. Le niveau de challenge du park est extrêmement bas ; encore un skatepark pour débutant ! On pouvait s’y attendre ce projet réuni tous les défauts des skateparks Solo. C’est mon opinion mais je pense qu’il s’agit encore là d’un gaspillage d’argent... [Voir la suite]
I have shown my web post readers many things about my friend Tristan Rennie over the years. Crap, I have now known him for more than half of his life. Every time I see him he is an even better skater than the last time I skated with him. Basically my powers of making people around me skate worst has no effect on him. Actually Kevin and my donations to his bank account for landing tricks may have made him a money stealing machine; i.e. « What, $5 to clear the channel », snake the next rider and walk away with the cash. It has been a privilege seeing him become the insane skateboarder that he is now. Basically an all terrain destroyer is what he has become. It is a long way from seeing him trying to learn...

Last weekend was the biggest contest for transition skateboarders of the year. The Vans Pool Party (sorry Vans but the old name was cooler when it was called the Protec Pool Party [PPP]) is held at the Combi (pool) replica located at the Vans skatepark in Orange, California. This year was the 10th annual contest. For the finals, all previous winners were pre-qualified directly to the finals which made for a weird contest. The winners from 7, 8, or more years ago had a hard time matching tricks and lines with the recent winners and the other riders that qualified for the finals. It was still great to see those older winners there skating and having fun. At least I hope they were having fun but it seems as though it was a little... [Voir la suite]

It is that time of the year again. The Vans Pool Party is streaming live this Saturday (May 16th, 2015) starting at 19h (EST). The show is going to be crazy again this year. Since it is the 10 Anniversary of the Vans Pool Party (previously known as the Protec Pool Party) the organizers decided to give all the previous winners a pass right into the finals. That format only leaves 5 places in the finals that are still available for the pro finals. The semifinals for those five spots are going to be crazy. Since my friend Tristan Rennie won the pro division last year he is already in the money. He better not just sloth his way through the finals or I will have to pay his brother to beat him up. Good luck Tristan (or is that... [Voir la suite]
Peace Park used to be an illegal spot to skate. With the help of Dave Bouthillier it has become a legal spot; that is if we skateboarders do not fuck it up with the police. On that topic, this is what Dave had to say.
« DON’T BRING HEAT: It has only been officially legal to skateboard in Peace Park for 2 weeks and already skaters have managed to draw negative attention, which resulted in the cops showing up after concerned neighbours called the police.
Skaters need to realize that if they abuse this new privilege it could easily be taken away. I’m not claiming to own the park, but I did legalize skating there, so you can be sure I know what I am talking about.
I’m not telling people what to do, I’m only suggesting... [Voir la suite]
