So the event was a bit under promoted... But we had a great time and the Pool turned out really sick. The location was ideal and provided enough space and level terrain for a fully shreddable set up.
The pool took about 2 hours to set up and the team got a good 4 hour sesh before we had to tear things down. The consistent conditions (and soft carpeting to fall upon) gave riders the opportunity throw down some RIDICULOUS tricks. 360 shuvs in and out, true big spins, 540 shuvs out, one foot combos....it was impressive.
With views of a historical landmark (stadium high school), commencement bay, the cascade mountains and some good friends there wasn't a better place to be on a 80 degree Saturday.
Check the photos...Mini Movie is in the works, possibly in reserve for DVD extras but we might drop it on youtube if the demand is there...
