Skate In A Waterpark? With Permission?

Dennis Regan

Chris Gregson leads the charge to skate every skateboarders dream spot; a waterpark.

After barging the spot off season, a few years ago, cops were called, friends were made, and now it has happened.

With full permission, the crew hits up a water park in Florida to skate what we have all dreamed of riding. Anyone who has slid down a slide had dreamed of rolling down it dry.

Bear witness as Tony Hawk, Jon Dickson, Collin Provost, Chris Gregson, Kevin Kowalski, Tristan Rennie, Torey Pudwill, Daewon Song, Tom Remillard, Omar Hassan, Karl Berlund, Aaron ‘Jaws’ Homoki, Pedro Delfino, Lizzie Armonio, Riley Hawk, and Clay Kriener.

Dreams do come true. Read Thrasher.

Keys to a drained water park and free rein to skate everything in sight?! Yes please! There are a lot of Epic Spots out there but this is truly Insane Terrain. And apparently upside-down ollies are a thing now...

Tristan Rennie, Kevin Kowalski, and Chris Gregson ride for Blood Wizard Skateboards, distributed in Canada by Platform Distribution.

VANS Park Series Vancouver

Dennis Regan

Hastings Skatepark was host to the 2017 Vans Park Series stop in Vancouver, BC. 

Hastings Beach was torn apart by the worlds best. Riders like Kevin Kowalski, Adam Hopkins, Ivan Federico, Pedro Barros and many, many more skated hard all week long.

It was the first time that Pedro Barros was able to skate in the Vancouver stop of the Vans Park series. 

He did not disappoint.

Watch and witness the destruction that was the Vans Park Series Vancouver stop on Hastings Beach. 

The highlight video doesn't quite capture the scope of the incredible skating that went down over the contest. 

Check out the Yardsale for more!

For a more emotional video of the event check out the video from local photo journalist Phil Bielicky.

Dennis Regan

PD's Hot shop has been a staple of the Vancouver scene for many decades. They have supported skateboarding in the best possible way the entire time.

Adam Hopkins was invited to join the shop team this Spring. The Lifeblood skateboards' team rider has been skating across Canada and around the world for years.

His skateboarding has been captured in the pages of SBC Skateboard mag, Kingshit Mag, and multiple video projects. 

Just search youtube for Adam Hopkins and settle in for hours of steady shredding.

Now there is one more video that captures the skateboarding of Adam Hopkins. Mike Mckinlay captured the feeling of an Adam Hopkins session at Leeside skatepark.

Get hit with some heavy hammers by Mason Merlino, Kevin Kowalski, Jerry Gurney, and Ben Raybourn. 

They all 'get some' at the Double Rock Skatepark but Ben Raybourn shuts it down with a sick trick at the end.

Watch as Lifeblood Skateboards and Plague Hardware riders skateboard in San Fransisco.  

Kowalski, Merlino, Gurney, and Raybourn wreak havoc on The Rock's vertical situations. Just wait 'til you see Ben's ender.
