Southwest Portland Skatepark Expedition

Jim & I went to Gabriel and Tigard skateparks for the first time yesterday and had a blast! Gabriel is surprisingly fun – you can pump it and rip around easily, and the walls outside the bowl are quite fun to jib on too.

We arrived at Tigard past dusk, so we were limited in our exploration, but we still had a good time pumping bowls and fumbling fastplants. Definitely going to head back when we can actually see what we’re riding.

I painstakingly edited a few clips together and produced the following video. Video editing on Linux: even less fun than photo editing. I’m on my green/yellow Norco (brakeless) and Jim is on his lavender Deity:
