We planned a big day out with the Powell Peralta crew. Deville Nunes lined up Charlie Blair, Brad McClain and Landon Belcher and my group of social misfits lined up a brand new Rossmore kidney pool. We drained it the morning of the session and the initial carve through seemed promising. We were excited to find new lines and discover exactly what this Sunset Rossmore had to offer. At the planned hour, the crew showed up and started skating.
The weather was looking pretty grim and cloudy. We remained hopeful. Within minutes of beginning the session, the sky turned loose on us. Rain fell in cold wet sheets and we all scurried underneath the porch roof, hoping to wait it out… Charlie had just started skating as he was the last to arrive. He decided that a little rain wasn’t going to dampen his spirits. He simply kept riding. We were baffled.
Most of the time, a pool can’t be ridden if it gets wet. Sometimes, the rough plaster is grippy enough, but most skaters will wait for a drier day. Not Charlie. Landon jumped in as well. The rest is history. These dudes ripped it up in a full downpour and I haven’t ever seen anything like it. The video clip is proof enough. George Powell’s new Flight deck technology was put to the test and truly measures up as an engineering marvel. Check out the video. Thanks to MRZ for the images. Skate – Ozzie
