We had a great time on our Western Canada Skate Shop trip. We drove through BC, AB and SK. We stopped at as many shops as we could to say Hello and meet shop owners and employees.
This is what makes Skateboarding great. Going to a new town or city, meeting the guys at the local shops and finding out what their town has to offer. Most shops would suggest their local park or the closest spot to check out. Some even had food suggestions. You gotta check out the donair place in Cochrane, AB. Down the street from Shredz. Super good food and good guys!
We also got to stop at some great new parks. Sylvan Lake, has had this park for a few years now. But we were able to get a shred in before the summer storms came through.
As we went through the Prairie Provinces, the rain followed us. We were able to get a session in in Medicine Hat, AB, just as the sun was going down. That meant that the mosquitoes were coming out. You couldn't stop moving or else you would get eaten alive. This made for a tiring session, and we ate a few mosquitoes as we pushed around this park.
Thanks to all our hosts along the way and big thanks to all of the skateboard shops supporting skateboarding. Keep up the good work!
