I had positive feedback from the skater photos I posted previously. Here are a bunch more from the second day of watching these kamikaze kids.
Two young kids stood out.
This one was fast, smooth and solidly comfortable on his board. In fact, I never once saw him get separated from his board. It almost looked like his feet were glued to it. Admittedly, he was not making the huge flying leaps but he was getting air going in and out of the pool.
This other kid was even more impressive. Again, solidly under control, never losing his board while making greater moves. Both of these kids had the protective gear to keep them skating a long while.
And then there were the high fliers.
You need to look at the whole sequence of these skaters in the gallery to appreciate what they are doing.
On the sign of rules were the instruction that no BMX, Scooters or Bicycles were allowed so I was surprised to see this young man on his Razer scooter. He was fairly good, doing most everything the others did, but I had to think there is a great advantage holding the handle bar to keep the scooter under foot.
Then this man walked up with his 5 foot long fancy laminated wooden skate board.
I was wondering if he would skate in the park. Nope. Just pushed himself along as a dry land paddle boarder.
And then there was the graceful art of simply rollerskating on the pathways.
